    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. They know how to treat their people.

    Cons

    SAP acquisition changed everything. They are too big and don't understand or value the BI business. Say they value the BOBJ employees but don't act like it. Have screwed over many really solid good people.

    Advice to Management

    SAP- you don't treat the BOBJ customers or the BOBJ employees as well as BOBJ did. This will come back to bite you.
