    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Actuate full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well paid jobs, compared to market. 9-5 hours.

    Cons

    Some incompetence at higher level. Corporate managers have no clue about tech. No growth opportunities (old boys club). They do acquisitions of smaller companies and drive those products straight into the ground. Stories went around about higher management using foul language in all hands meetings (disgusting). People lost jobs after many layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying tech companies whose product you cannot sell. Give people a chance to advance in their careers. Cleanup your language.
