Pros

The company has a unique and justified position in the crowed business intelligence market. They offer a nice tech stack at a reasonable price point. Employees are generally friendly and want to do well by the company.

Cons

Company experiencing pressure from a variety of market factors: pressure from large BI vendors who are now offering substantially lower entry point pricing, pressure from niche vendors such as Tableau Software, Yellowfin, and many others who are have beautiful light BI offerings at a better price than Pentaho. Company does not value sales. Company does not value employee contribution. Executives are disconnected from the business. Senior management must not have gone to business school as they are hiring their friends, family, etc and not placing the best resource in leadership roles. CEO is bored or tired and not involved in the day to day management of the business. Company has changed strategic direction 4 times in the past 2 years. There is no way to execute when senior manage does not lead.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring your friends to lead the company. Pick a strategy and stick to it for more than six months. Reward good performance with acknowledgement. On sales side, tell your senior management team to go to a seminar on what it is like to sell in 2011. 1996 does not work any more, seriously! You are losing all your top talent. Don't give up. Care!

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

    Pros

    401k match, good health benefits, unique product

    Cons

    Micro-management, lack of quality leadership and product roadmap, overwhelmed workforce, politics, short-sighted management and executives, tons of turnover, lots of talk about fun and caring culture but still a bottom-line oriented top-down corporate culture at the end of the day. middle managers pretend to be your buddies when they are trying to figure out new ways to orient their bottom line and look good for their big-wig bosses. lower compensation than average.
