    Amazing place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Orlando, FL

    ProsThe people are great and it's always fun to come to work. You feel like you're going to hang out with friends and get stuff done. I look forward to going to work every day.

    ConsSome of the people are political and there are lots of growing pains as the company is rapidly getting bigger. That is a really small fraction, though, and I think it mostly affects management. There is really no formal on board training, which makes ramping up challenging. You have be comfortable with change and moving fast to fit in.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awesome Culture!

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Orlando, FL

    ProsAt Pentaho, I am surrounded by so many people I admire and respect. The team chemistry is great and the team leads are some of the best I've ever worked with. The projects keep me engaged and interested. I appreciate all the things the company does to keep us happy and motivated - brown bags, occasional free lunches, loaded break rooms, work-from-home flex, gym memberships, etc. The best part of working here is the culture! =)

    ConsWe have a very long list of products/projects to maintain. It takes a long time to get familiar with the entire technology stack.

    Fun and fast-paced place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis is a dynamic and fun place to work....the creativity and ideas that are swirling about are amazing! I have been here about a year and I still look forward to going into the office on Monday mornings. The motto here seems to be "ask for forgiveness, not permission". Management actively encourages ideas.

    Definitely full of very intelligent, creative people, and there's a distinct lack of "jerks". I believe that the hiring process is designed specifically to keep shallow thinkers, pessimistic people, and jerks out! It's quite refreshing

    ConsSometimes it's a little loud (people chatting). Hey, I had to write something here, and that was all I could come up with.

    Advice to Senior Managementcontinue having 1 on 1s with staff....this process works

    The Best Place I've Ever Worked!!!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPentaho is unique and I love working here. It is the perfect combination of "laid-back casualness", and commitment to excellence.

    Pros:
    Co-Workers are passionate about the product and their role in creating it.
    Flexible schedule.
    Great place for people who are self starters and self managers.
    Lots of new, cutting-edge technology.
    International teams.
    Incredible benefits package, the best I've seen anywhere!

    ConsCons:
    There aren't any cons for me, but this place would be a poor fit for someone who needs a lot of guidance and clear direction. It would also be a poor fit for someone who is not a self-starter.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Amazing opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPentaho has advanced software that is the leader in an emerging market. The engineering team and their leadership is innovative and extremely capable. Additionally, all of our execs (engineering, marketing, sales, etc.) are thought leaders and subject matter experts with significant industry experience. Pentaho is truly an amazing place to work.

    ConsWe're growing - fast! With that growth comes some pain. The good news is, growing pains are common and are quickly overcome. Pentaho is great at ramping up and employees and making available the tools and processes to ensure we continue to grow as market leaders.

    So far, a company done right

    (Current Employee)

    ProsThe CEO runs the company very well and the sales VP is a veteran who has seen it all and knows what he is doing. Corporate communication is absolutely fantastic thus far. The people are open, helpful, and pleasant to work with. The culture is about working hard, working smart, and collaborating from what I have seen so far. Lastly, marketing and sales work very collaboratively, as # of leads and # of sales accepted opportunities are measured and are transparent. This team is very well poised for success.

    ConsThere is a twenty word minimum here, so I'm going to type this sentence and meet the requirement right now.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. Be sure to pay attention to career development in the coming years.
