    I have been working at LeftHand Networks

    Pros

    Up and coming company with a ton of potential. LeftHand Networks has developed a Computer Storage (SAN) technology that has more features than the competitive solutions - and costs less. Working for a company that doesn't have the best product in the industry is like pushing a stone up hill; Lefthand Networks is like pushing a stone down hill...the industry and our customers are pulling us ahead at a feverish pace!

    Cons

    Startup feel. Although Lefthand Networks has been around for almost a decade, it still has some of the issues of a startup. For employees that can mean wearing a number of hats and going beyond normal 'day to day' activities to get the job done. Company is privately held - which may or may not be considered a 'downside', but there is a HUGE focus on keeping costs down and sometimes that focus on efficiency can take its toll on the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management has always had its finger on the pulse of our industry, and has done a superb job of steering this company. Our management team has spent a surprising amount of time and resources on communitcation, regularly looking to its customers, employees and business partners for feedback. Hopefully they will keep us ahead of the competition so that we can continue to hold our leadership position in this space.

LeftHand Networks believes that what's good for the LAN is good for the SAN. The company makes Internet protocol (IP)-based disk arrays and management software. Unlike Fibre Channel, the most prevalent technology used to build storage area networks (SANs), IP storage (or iSCSI) allows storage traffic to be carried over common Ethernet networks. LeftHand's products are designed to allow customers migrating from direct-attached storage (DAS) systems to build SANs less expensively. LeftHand Networks was founded in 2000 by CTO John Spiers and others from Maxtor. The company... More
