    I have been working at Isilon, A Division of EMC

    Pros

    Isilon has some great technology which those who adopt the products are very fond of for easing management and growing storage costs. Isilon's CEO Sujal Patel is one of the smartest and most personable people you've ever met! In his role as CTO he oversaw the development of key functionality and product releases--he had a strong pulse on the field. As CEO he is capable of taking Isilon to the next level of being a $500 Million dollar company.

    Cons

    Although Sujal is one of Isilon's biggest and most valuable assets, someof their choices for middle management are left to be questioned. The lack of skill, direct selling and managing may hurt the already fragile sales team. Just because you worked at a "big name company" does not necessarily mean you're the right person for the job. The culture at Isilon has always been open, honest, fun, work hard-play hard, and rewarding. Hopefully their choices in middle management folks doesnt disrupt this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more efficiently to the field and provide open forums for discussion to address field concerns and customer issues. Increase support team to support growing customer base and DO YOUR HOMEWORK before hiring people. It's a small storage industry---pick up the phone and make some calls. And lastly, take care of those who have shown you commitment and faithfulness during hard times....
