    I have been working at OSIsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Smart and friendly coworkers
    - Wide variety of technologies to work on
    - Loyal customer base and established reputation

    Cons

    - Below market compensation
    - Some stagnant or archaic looking products
    - Almost exclusively a Microsoft shop which ties us closely to Microsoft's performance
    - Pretty far behind in terms of SaaS/IaaS

    Advice to Management

    Provide your employees with more competitive salaries if you want to retain them. Consider branching out your tech stack beyond what Microsoft has to offer. Get your SaaS/IaaS game together. We cannot ride on the coat tails of our aging core products forever.

    I worked at OSIsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Got to work in a development team that operated on three week sprints. Got to be part of 4 sprints and in each one I took part in a different aspect of software development. In my summer working at OSIsoft, I managed to gain experience in Automation, DevOps, Feature Work and Security. The internship was well-structured as well. By starting off my internship with automation and writing tests, I got to familiarize myself with the codebase. That opened up opportunities to engage in feature work later on in the internship.

    There were also a lot of fun company and intern events. I enjoyed my time here.

    Cons

    None really. Supervisors don't push interns very hard to do more work, but there's always more work to be done if you just be proactive and ask.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors do not have to be afraid of pushing interns a bit harder, they can take it. Sometimes interns are just a bit shy.

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, kind and attentive supervisors, lots flexibility in work hours/location, relaxing ambience, caring management and proximity to Bart San Leandro

    Cons

    The products are not the easiest to understand. If it were not for the excellent tech support team, would have made the business not as successful. Engineering may want to seriously consider lean and agile across products and teams.

    I worked at OSIsoft (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - There are various interesting projects.
    - The people working there are lovely and you will feel part of a big family.
    - As far as I can tell, they honored everything they promised.
    - They are a multinational with offices in many places -they call their system follow-the-sun. At least a while back it was not uncommon, as a way of congratulating/kudos/prizes, for employees to work out of other offices for a month or so -e.g. some people went to Singapore, German, and Australia.
    - People tend to stay with the company a long time -which somewhat uncommon and refreshing in the SF Bay Area.
    - They were transparent including on times when the company was a bit restrained wrt cash. If the company made money, they were diligent and one would say generous with bonuses.

    Cons

    There are issues common to companies of that size. So far as I could tell, there was no one big issue.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I worked at OSIsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gives you 100% freedom to learn about their product. Very laid back culture. People are fun and are very willing to help you. Also, they subsidize your lunch, which was pretty cool.

    Cons

    Troubleshooting their problem could sometimes get irritating after hours. Also, there is a steep learning curve, especially for a college student with limited computer background.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! It has been my best internship experience so far and I will definitely consider coming back for a full time. It was nice to be able to interact with the management as well!
