Disapproves of CEO

Pros

good software
good rank and file employees
location

Cons

Executive management can't prioritize. Everything is a fire drill. There's no time to plan before implementing. They say they value quality, but they push you to do some much work that quality suffers.

Advice to Management

To do some things well, you can't do everything.

    Pros

    Good group of people
    Interesting technology
    Great SF location
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Most of product development devoted to the open source products that generate no $
    Commercial product pricing strategy made absolutely no sense
    Marketing at all levels for the commercial products was a joke
    With one exception, sales management was disorderly, disinterested, and reactionary.
    No sense of urgency about ANYTHING, except when it was time to point fingers at the sales team
    Sales people treated like children. Expected to be at your desk at 8 am so you could watch the rest of the company trickle in beween 9 and 11 (management included)

    Advice to Management

    Decide whether you want to be a true commercial venture with a sustainable model or some open source also ran whose only strategy is to hope someone will acquire you.

    I worked at Jaspersoft as a contractor

    Pros

    I enjoyed working here, the work was rewarding, and challenging but not nerve wracking. The company culture was quite good with employees being treated well.

    Cons

    I worked there for 6 months, and gave more than was asked of me, but despite calls from my superiors that I would make a great permanent addition to the team and numerous times being asked if I would like to work there , I was let go at the end of my contract, and back into unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    If you have good people, don't let them go! If someone fits with the culture, works hard and is good at their job, do everything you can to keep them.
