    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 have been working at Pentaho as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    True open door policy, supportive colleagues and management. Nice environment to work. Flexible hours. Nice equipment. And also struggling to do the 20 words...

    Cons

    No explicit career path, and salaries are secret. I have no more cons but I have to write 20 words so...
