    Pros

    I loved working for Endeca, everyone was helpful, friendly, smart, and dedicated.

    Cons

    Purchased by Oracle. I actually left in 2011, but Glassdoor would not let me select that year.

    Pros

    Best job I ever had, fabulous technology, well-managed, some of the smartest and nicest people I ever met

    Cons

    Purchased by Oracle. Not a complaint but it's a very different place and needs to be evaluated separately.

    Advice to Management

    Great Job!

    I worked at Endeca Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Endeca was composed of smart, motivated, and achievement driven individuals at every level. There was an amazing sense of team and great leadership that pulled it all together. And the product was outstanding - best in class.

    Cons

    As with any tech company in a quickly growing market, there were ups and downs within the business. The team overcame the challenges as well as any I have been a part of.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the momentum and growth that started at Endeca. Go build more companies that win in their markets and develop new leaders.

    I worked at Endeca Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    *smart* people
    great technology
    good culture

    A great place to work. It wasn't perfect, but the company tried to do most things right.

    Endeca did a great job of developing young people into company leaders

    Cons

    It's now Oracle, and that, by all accounts has really changed things
    A lot of churn (back in the day) in the sales team and the sales strategy
    The company always struggled to market itself well - really more product/sales focused

    Pros

    Top-notch PM and Engineering team. Great overall work environment. Cutting edge product

    Cons

    Acquired by Oracle killed morale. Work/Life balance was valued but depending on the project you would be expected to work on vacations and outside biz hrs.

    Advice to Management

    Given the acquisition by Oracle and subsequent departure of most Endeca executives, there isnt a lot to say here.

    I worked at Endeca Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great technology, great market, but most importantly one of the best teams in the Boston area. It's likely that things have changed a lot since the acquisition, but it was a great place to be before Oracle.

    Cons

    Many of the normal challenges of a start-up growing up: the organization learning to specialize and organize; finding people of the same high caliber as the early employees but with relevant experience; expanding into new markets as the initial niche becomes saturated. Really these were all good problems to have.

    I worked at Endeca Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Fast moving company offering employees a chance to handle a wide range of responsibilities

    Very relaxed atmosphere which appeals to young single workforce

    Good technology

    Great office location

    Cons

    Weekly changes in strategy
    Micromanagement from top executives
    Conflicting messages from founder and COO
    Fair amount of turnover in Senior Management Team

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

    Pros

    Worked with very talented and smart people; great culture; worked on challenging problems; employees were encouraged to think outside the box and "be disruptive".

    Cons

    Core technology was the same, but the product positioning seemed to change every six months. Over the course of time, it seems like we would go full circle.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused.

    Pros

    opportunity to expand your role, autonomy to make decisions, lots of project related work to keep you motivated, great company culture, competitive environment, results-driven environment, only A players here!

    Cons

    really, can't think of anything!

    Advice to Management

    waiting for them to fund the next start-up!
