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

    Pros

    Great benefits, ability to work from home when you need to, overall the smartest group of people I've ever worked with. Genuine ability to move jobs within the company.

    Cons

    Not that crazy about the work itself that I'm doing, but hey, it's a job. The office is kind of packed with people since we're expanding so fast.

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

    Pros

    -very smart/capable team from a tech perspective, including founders / early employees that are still here after 5-10 years
    -great benefits and very open to working remotely / flexible schedules
    -has small-company feel but the stability of a global enterprise (independent sub of Hitachi)
    -opportunity for people interested in helping scale marketing/sales/product initiatives
    -have seen increased staff promotion/advancement from within over the last few years

    Cons

    -sometimes there is a need to 'make your own structure' - this is sometimes a challenge but can be an opportunity for those who are ambitious and patient
    -there could be more delegation by VPs/Directors of longer term major responsibilities to their staff

    Pros

    I'm happy to be at Pentaho. The company culture is open and fun while still maintaining a professional atmosphere. People here are good at what they do and also take what they do seriously. If you want to push yourself and be with a corporation that's doing big things, this is the place.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about Pentaho. This is a great place. The work is great, as are the benefits.

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

    Pros

    The people are great and it's always fun to come to work. You feel like you're going to hang out with friends and get stuff done. I look forward to going to work every day.

    Cons

    Some of the people are political and there are lots of growing pains as the company is rapidly getting bigger. That is a really small fraction, though, and I think it mostly affects management. There is really no formal on board training, which makes ramping up challenging. You have be comfortable with change and moving fast to fit in.

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

    Pros

    At Pentaho, I am surrounded by so many people I admire and respect. The team chemistry is great and the team leads are some of the best I've ever worked with. The projects keep me engaged and interested. I appreciate all the things the company does to keep us happy and motivated - brown bags, occasional free lunches, loaded break rooms, work-from-home flex, gym memberships, etc. The best part of working here is the culture! =)

    Cons

    We have a very long list of products/projects to maintain. It takes a long time to get familiar with the entire technology stack.
