    Pros

    I liked the remote worker flexibility and collaborative mentality. Lots of technical talent to bring to bear when solving issues. Opportunities to move to other areas within the business as well as partner businesses such as VMware

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be tough. Sales is a revolving door which makes other parts of the delivery and customer sat process a challenge.

    Pros

    On the whole, a hard working group of pros who are intelligent and have a good understanding of the ecosystem - peers, competitors, partners, and adjacent businesses. The company is making the transition from a legacy storage business to a next-gen stack provider with Pivotal and VMware in the mix and is poised to be one of the few survivors of this epic transformation of the IT industry. Job mobility is reasonably good and career opportunities are good.

    Cons

    Laggards remain who only want to sell big boxes of disks, and many still don't understand the difference between infrastructure and what cloud really means. Fortunately, these are the minority and this group is shrinking.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the federation story but bring the organizations much closer together.

    Pros

    Alot of technology, most of it industry leading. Good quarters can be lucrative. Plethora of training available.

    Cons

    Pressure. The sales quotas go up every quarter. High turnover of account teams leaves engineers constantly looking over their shoulder. Management is also very stressed and have tendency's to take it out on team members. No real office. Sit in different location each day due to flex office space.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. They are engineers, not soldiers or puppets.

    Pros

    Willing and able team member are always there to help out. There are always new products to learn about so it keeps your mind fresh for your career

    Cons

    There is too much finger-pointing. Also, though the amount of work that there is to do can be daunting, some try to push off the workload too much to others

    Advice to Management

    It would behoove management to be more in-tune with what goes on in the field
