    I have been working at Commvault full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work on a diverse product positioned in the Enterprise market. Have the ability to move to different test teams and work on different applications if so desired. Its family oriented and hours are flexible. Overall its a fantastic company i love working for.

    Cons

    There is some favoritism that does go on. But i feel like you have that anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly communicate with Dev/Test procedures and things of that nature. Keep a clear path. Procedures and things seem to change a lot. Lots of favoritism going on as well

    I have been working at Commvault (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing products, even competitors recognize Commvault as the best in class. Although it's a slow process, it's clear that leadership cares and is committed about the wellbeing of the employees. We've gone to a "Freedom PTO" (unlimited) policy, have a fantastic new HQ (with slide, game rooms, etc.), and the management is responding to the employee satisfaction survey. It's a highly innovative environment...good for people that really want to make an impact. We also have fun at work.

    Cons

    Constant change has been on ongoing issue. Lack of brand and marketing in key markets has hindered us...but that is being address with a new marketing team. Communications are beginning to improve, but still need work.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the sales ops issues (communications, enablement, etc.). Provide more transparency/communications to the employees. Don't pull back on the growth levers...we are on the edge of great things...keep it going.

    Pros

    Product is good. Lots of industry accolades this is the only good thing about the company

    Cons

    Bunch of greedy managers that are dead weight. Rejects from oracle and Cisco and dell now run the ship in middle management. Stay away from this company at all expense!!!!!! EMC has a better culture then this place!

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves!!!!! Get a view from outside CommVault. Instead of always talking about changing the culture, actually do something and change the culture.

    Pros

    Gartner likes them so it's a safe place to work for a while.

    Cons

    - Commvault is on an aggressive march toward $1B and there will be bodies on the road to success. That has been going on for about 3 years when there was a detectable shift in corporate culture. The methods being employed might work for the short term gain but are very destructive to the roots that made this company a leader. - The level of arrogance in the management ranks is INCREDIBLE and shocking to anybody that has been around 5 years or more. - There are a significant number of disgruntled employees which was not the case 5 years ago. I rarely ran into a person that didn't like working for CommVault. Now? They want out. Commvault is no longer "the happiest place on earth" . - It is a place to work. That's not enough for some people. - Many inexperienced managers are running the show with their spreadsheets and salesforce dashboards but zero people skills. - Experienced employees just disappear and are replaced by new ones. - Management does not acknowledge the value that comes with experienced employee. Even those with a spotless reputation. It's more important to fit into the new highly defined box where nary a creative thought can escape into another box. Very IBM / EMC'ish. - Management does not value input from employees. Suggestions get stuck at middle management tiers. - Zero on employee development - Simpana has grown into a bloated, overly complex solution with features most customers don't require. It looks great but do you really need everything? Complexity is being masked by a modular marketing approach. Same complex engine below the surface full of deployment caveats. Significant professional services required for implementations. - There are significant shifts in the the industry. Simpana might be on the road to becoming the new "legacy backup" system.

    Advice to Management

    - Get back to the culture from two+ years ago that made the company successful. - Send some of your VP's off to sensitivity training. Commvault is not EMC or IBM. It is not the military. - Get your head out of the sand when you review employee surveys. Address the bad. - Back to real open door policy. That no longer exists. - Stop forcing people into the box. Out of box thinking and behavior is creative. - Lose the arrogance. Yes it's good to be a leader on the Gartner Magic Quadrant. Others have been there and slipped. - Address the brewing political environment that is being brought into the company. - Hint. Only the best employees leave. Competitors want us. They value our knowledge and experience. I might not be the brightest bulb on the rack but I think it makes sense to have us (= best employees) working for you to build your company rather than work against you.

    I worked at Commvault full-time

    Pros

    Great Technology. My management chain was great all the way up.

    Cons

    I was 8 year employee with good/great annual reviews. Was never given stock except at hire and was told 2% pay raise was the norm. They regularly gut the sales team ( I was not in Sales ) and seem to now have difficulty attracting top talent in this area.

    Advice to Management

    The company will go further with silicon valley pay and benefits to match your silicon valley styled HQ.

    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.
