    I worked at Actuate for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can maintain a decent work life balance.

    Cons

    During my time, the company lacked clear vision or direction. Departments didn't work well together as teams. It seemed there was more in-fighting and politics and they way you got ahead was being in the boy's club. Low pay, and management creates delusional sense of advancement. Total sales culture.

    I have been working at Actuate full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I've been with Actuate for nearly 10 years and am very happy here. The company invests in its employees and takes care of those who perform. Provides a great work-life balance and the opportunity to learn and grow in areas of professional interest. Promotes collaboration and cohesiveness both within and between departments and this fosters a very positive work environment.

    Cons

    I really don't have anything negative to say--I wish the office was a little closer to home but I am provided a lot of flexibility to accommodate my commute so this isn't an issue.

    I have been working at Actuate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good work life balance, nice employees, friendly environment, generally accessible exec staff, flexible with family, small enough that most people get to know each other

    Cons

    high turnover, no employee retention plans, below average compensation and near impossible to get an increase, few opportunities to grow, have to leave to improve career, party culture spills into work time, some long term dead weight in the ranks, steady loss of talent and nothing happening to stop it
