    Pros

    Good office technology, good fun place to work.
    You can make a difference here, willing to try new ideas
    Transitioning from start up culture into well run mid sized firm. Not too bureaucratic.

    Cons

    Location in Central Reading seems a strange choice. However, next to the station so not too bad.

    Reliance on one software solution. May need to diversify to reduce dependency risk.

    Advice to Management

    As you grow avoid building unnecessary bureaucracy. EMC is the example of how not to grow.

    Pros

    Commvault is going through a huge transformation. In some ways it's like a start up with an cash in the bank, no debt, amazing products and really smart people.

    Cons

    The change is not for everyone. Change means ambiguity. It can be a pretty demanding environment. Everyone needs to show up with their "A" game.

    Pros

    Great product, some very intelligent people, good balance of work-life, great new start of the art corporate headquarters.

    Cons

    Lack of execution, lack of consistency and senior leadership (executive team included) needs some consideration of change in personnel to take the company their goal of $1B.

    Pros

    Growing company. Overall interested in a good work environment. Subsidized food court.

    Cons

    My manager was not the greatest. We were a small team (<5) and I was only allowed to know enough information to get the job done. My manager always had to be the go-between. I'm not sure there was career growth opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the managers. They should be empowering their employees. HR should be a neutral party, not favoring the person higher up the ladder.

    Pros

    Growth potential as the industry is still growing. Treat employees with respect and reward for hard work. From a corporate perspective they make a priority of infusing fun into the workplace.

    Cons

    Promotions based on how long one has been with the company as opposed to what an employee brings to the table. Extremely long hours for little gratitude within specific organizations and credit can often times be taken by a superior for what a subordinate has accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you give credit where credit is due and reward all employees for their hard work and dedication. Lead by example.

    Pros

    1. Company has great potential
    2. Work is amazing. You get to learn a lot.
    3. flexible work hours and unlimited time off policy for engineering.

    Cons

    1. Lack of proper leadership.
    2. No proper planning
    3. No proper communication between teams and between senior management and engineers.
    4. Many potential and hard working employees' hard work are not recognized and overshadowed due to office politics.
    5. Salary and benefits is not so good when compared to market standards.
    6. Lack of proper work culture and respect to fellow employees.
    8. Work life balance is in the extremes. Sometimes people have no work and sometimes people work on the weekends.
    9. Favoritism.
    10. Too many oscillations in the thought process.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire proper managers so that planning is done properly. Favoritism should be removed and proper recognition of hard work.

    Note: Employees don't leave jobs—they leave managers.

    Pros

    Innovative company with fantastic product. Despite being a mid-size and growing company, people at CommVault have an opportunity to wear a lot of different hats and take on new responsibilities. Coworkers are friendly and direct. The new HQ in NJ is world class.

    Cons

    The company is going through some transitions as the marketplace changes around it, but the executive strategy seems sound and already seems to be producing results.
