    I worked at Actuate

    Pros

    Salary was about avg for industry. Benefits avg. Technology was good. Really believed in solution for first few years. Met some good people.

    Cons

    Departments don't work well together. Management staff for most part is weak. Too many long term employees are moved into mgmt and director positions with little mgmt experience . This has a direct effect on the company's ability to put any structure in place or attract...retain good people

  6. "Mixed bag -- good accomplishments but some odd behavior"

    I worked at Actuate

    Pros

    The products are good -- you can point to what you made and be proud. Also, there are lots of good people there. The company doesn't try to inflict an artificial culture on its people. If you are sick, they support you being out to get well. They seem to mostly keep the people they hire -- didn't seem to be much turnover.

    Cons

    Hard to get requirements or functional specs on product development., even when your job needs access to them -- didn't seem like they exist Embracing agile dev seemed to be just an excuse to fly by the seat of the pants... or maybe they had a plan (including specs & requirements?) and no longer felt like they needed to communicate it to other employees. Increasingly the main innovation was in China, not the U.S., which added to the communication issue. Sometimes odd politics led to surprising promotions or credit being given to the wrong people.
