    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Actuate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the products were good, and useful to people who needed them. The Toronto office was a friendly, flexible environment. The lower levels of management were helpful and supportive. The office itself was a very nice space.

    Cons

    Frequent downsizing, and other cost-cutting measures, prevent any possible growth in the business. The current hiring freeze means you cannot apply there anyway, but if you are hired, the owners are not interested in developing or expanding the Actuate product lines, so your job probably won't last long.

    I worked at Actuate full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Well paid jobs, compared to market. 9-5 hours.

    Cons

    Some incompetence at higher level. Corporate managers have no clue about tech. No growth opportunities (old boys club). They do acquisitions of smaller companies and drive those products straight into the ground. Stories went around about higher management using foul language in all hands meetings (disgusting). People lost jobs after many layoffs.

    I worked at Actuate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good place to work if you are just starting out of college. If your prove good work, management will in trust more responsibilities to you. Relatively easy going environment, not a lot of pressure outbreaks on of projects are completed as expected.

    Cons

    Low pay. Management doesn’t offer much in terms of career growth and planning. Management really doesn’t seem to know what they are doing or inspire a lot of confidence in employees as far as vision and direction of the company. It feels like a place where talent gets wasted. Employees get comfortable and so the feeling of new challenges and growth disappear.
