    Very challenging place to work. Very dynamic but not for the faint at heart

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsDynamic, growth, good product, interesting people

    ConsSome entrenched stubborness in the engineering department

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmbrace change and do not stand on what has worked in the past.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Provides employees with opportunities to expand their skill sets and advance their careers

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    Prospre-IPO, great compensation packages including stock options, opportunities for career growth, cutting edge technology, industry leader in Network Attached Storage space, strong management team

    Consunlike larger companies with unlimited cash to fund support resources, each employee at BlueArc must roll up their sleeves and do the day to day work needed to make the company successful, i.e., no management only positions - all positions are hands on.

    Decent place, unknown future

    (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsGood people, decent product, fairly stable.

    ConsCompany is caught between direct sales and a single large OEM (HDS). BlueArc struggles to please both avenues. (The features needed for a complete product for direct sales are not the same as those needed by a large OEM.)

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdjust strategy accordingly, and communicate to employees.

    Great place to work

    Human Resources (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsAs a mid-sized yet fast growing company, every employee has an opportunity to make an impact on the company's success and be recognized and rewarded; good cross functional teamwork, communication, and very good executive leadership; very good compensation including pre-IPO stock option grants.

    Consgrowing pains as we move from private toward public company

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time with employees at all levels of organization

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
