    Good company to work with

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsFriendly environment
    Most of the people were technical including top management
    Very clear on what is to be delivered

    ConsBenefits are not par with market, but not bad
    Need to think of maintenance when developing code, better to follow standards to write scripts and code.
    Workload is little high

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt may not be a good idea to work off hours all the time, provide more benefits if need to work long hours.
    Not anything else I can think of. Good going.

    Needs better management to drive company to IPO

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOK benefits
    Good initial product.
    Some talented development engineers

    ConsDisorganized
    Long hours
    Low salaries
    Highly political
    Places too much stock in inexperienced product manager
    More focused on short term gains and ROI for VCs than a reliable product.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter planning. Ditch the PM and Development and get someone who knows storage.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
