Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Pentaho full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The office in SF has awesome views
Many of the office staff females are very attractive
Sometimes management will treat you to dinner

Cons

I am in sales and from that standpoint it's a revolving door of people.
Nobody makes quota then you get fired after building your pipeline.
Don't take my word for it. Check out all the past people who have worked there in sales
on LinkedIN.
The CEO often goes on wild, incomprehensible rants he calls "motivational talks"

Advice to Management

Set realistic goals for your sales staff and it will not be a revolving door.

    I have been working at Pentaho full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a dynamic and fun place to work....the creativity and ideas that are swirling about are amazing! I have been here about a year and I still look forward to going into the office on Monday mornings. The motto here seems to be "ask for forgiveness, not permission". Management actively encourages ideas.

    Definitely full of very intelligent, creative people, and there's a distinct lack of "jerks". I believe that the hiring process is designed specifically to keep shallow thinkers, pessimistic people, and jerks out! It's quite refreshing

    Cons

    Sometimes it's a little loud (people chatting). Hey, I had to write something here, and that was all I could come up with.

    Advice to Management

    continue having 1 on 1s with staff....this process works
