    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!

    I worked at OSIsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is very successful, offers great software products, and is at the top of their industry. The work environment is very relaxed and friendly. The dress code is casual and people like to have fun and keep the day interesting. There's a lot of training and mentoring to help you get acclimated with the company and it's products. There's lots of opportunities to advance in the company and move into different positions within the company.

    Cons

    People are very social and sometimes clique-ish, so shy or introverted people may feel intimidated or left out. There's a significant salary discrepancy based on university.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a more structured and consistent review system to evaluate performance and communicate expectations. Opportunities to work from home should also be available to people other than field service and field sales.

    I have been working at OSIsoft (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. As a software engineer, sometimes you have to work longer hours to get things done on time, but it's never asked of you by management. In my current project, I rarely work more than 40 hours per week. Also, the company has been around for a long time and is very stable... it's never had a round of layoffs in the > 10 years I've been there. Turnover is very low compared to traditional software companies.

    One thing I really like about this company is the software is used in so many industries outside of the tech sector... primarily connecting to automation control systems used for manufacturing, oil and gas, energy production, chemical, pharmaceuticals etc. Talking to our customers is like watching an episode of "How It's Made". I've learned a lot.

    Cons

    The company does so well because it caters to a niche set of markets that have a lot of money. It has few real competitors that can offer the same software and services. However, if a big company with a lot of resources decided they wanted to compete in these markets, the company would probably be in trouble.

    Also, from a software standpoint, much of the technology being used is somewhat dated (legacy stuff) without a lot of real interesting innovation happening in many dev groups. There's some effort recently to change that however.
