I worked at Actuate full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The technology is good in a competitive industry.

Cons

Sales is a revolving door. Poor morale among sales org and customers. Constantly making it hard to do business with. Not capitalizing on open source. Do not care about growth.

Advice to Management

Work on growth.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Actuate as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    7 hour work days, relaxed and slow pace environment like that of a government organization. They embrace alcohol and parties. Their products are good.

    Cons

    Highly political, lots of back stabbing and subjective false allegations towards each other. Just dysfunctional especially to a newbie. Lots of comments to new employees such as "you should have known xyz from your last company". Males openly flirt with females and the females don't mind (not sure what falls under - weird?). childish behaviors.

    Advice to Management

    Your method of divide and conquer works wells and you are achieving your goals.

    I have been working at Actuate full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A medium sized company, friendly team oriented co-workers, good salary and working with and travelling to the Fortune 500 corporations around the world.

    Cons

    Not a "Con", really but in this industry and this economy, change happens often. If not able to roll with it, this may not be the company, or industry for you.
