    Good Employees. Poor Leadership.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsDuring my time at EVault, I was happy with my co-workers. They were proficient, intelligent and pleasant to work with. There was definitely a feeling of solidarity.

    ConsSenior managers are disrespectful to the employees. It's like junior high all over again.
    I've never experienced so much office politics, gossip and drama--90% generated by management.
    Excessive employee turnover made it difficult to generate momentum.
    Poor execution on the engineering side has resulted in products that lag far behind competition. Senior management places blame on employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example. Cut the politics, gossip, and drama. Respect your employees.

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

    Worst Company I've Ever Worked For

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood location in downtown San Francisco. My coworkers were enjoyable to work with. They were knowledgeable and did everything they could to make a difference.

    ConsEVault is by far the worst company I have ever had the experience of working for. The executives are either absent or play the "blame" game, freely using employees as scapegoats. The company hasn't grown in the last several years and its technology continues to lag behind the competition. The CEO spends most of his time bragging about his glory days at Crystal and Seagate Software. All the while, EVault withers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStep aside and let real leaders take the helm.

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

    Great place to grow if you are willing to work for it

    Territory Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsAwesome atmosphere at the Salt Lake City Office.
    Great place to get started actually closing deals as an inside rep as opposed to just setting for outside closer.
    Company has a lot of exciting things going with Seagate.
    Great internal training from inside sales managers.
    Game room with: Pinball, Ping-Pong, Foosball, Double-shot darts and pool table.
    Lots of corporate sponsored activities.

    ConsNot the best office location.
    communication from higher ups could be better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep being open with us on the direction the company is headed.
    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good people but rudderless

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people that work there are fantastic and willing to help

    ConsThe management is promoted based on tenure and not ability. This leads to bad managers in important positions. The influence on the product can be seen in its lagging behind the rest of the industry in capability, services offered and cost.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRevise the product, severely and change your complete strategy

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

    One of the worst places I've worked.

    Marketing Specialist (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsNice office, laid back culture, many people work from home. Nice facilities and some nice people. Good life/work balance.

    ConsPoor management, lots of turnover, product is difficult to understand. Lots of politics, company failed to reach revenue goals, long term employees are not A players.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo your job or go somewhere else. Be better managers. Motivate and retain good employees.

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

    Only the top make money....

    Territory Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsGood people in various departments, helpful peers. Pre-sales engineers are great.

    ConsIf you are making above average compensation due to hard work in Sales, they will change the rules to move you back to average.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a Sales Compensation plan that encourages long term careers within the company.

    illusions of grandeur, reality = failed $75M experiment

    NONE (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    Pros+ beautiful office in SOMA
    + great people on most teams
    + central location
    + really solid engineering team

    Cons- inept leadership team that wasted $75M of seagates money while touting wins. what wins?
    - weak HR department filled with ineffective paper pushers
    - very poor finance team (millions wasted), HR (high legal risk) and millions spent in spinning stories vs building a real product
    -HR team talks buzzwords & lowers the bar constantly - while incurring more risk than they mitigate, the ultimate irony. audit-worthy in a class unto itself
    -president and his sidekick are a joke and need a serious audit.

    sheeplike mentality for a product that had so much potential. such a shame!

    Advice to Senior Management- stop lowering the bar - you will attract even more mediocrity
    - get real adults in the exec conversation
    - build a product that is competitive in the market

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