I have been working at 3PAR

Pros

It's great to have the option of telecommuting but more often than not we need to attend meetings and meet with others to get the job done.

Cons

Working fluidly between Marketing and Engineering is troubled. There is a lack of information on what each department is doing. Marketing does not adhere to the importance of the Engineering schedule to release products on time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A fun work environment is not what a typical 3PAR employee needs because a typical 3PAR employee is married with children. What they need is salary compensation.

    I worked at 3PAR

    Pros

    Working from home. Good Technology & Customer loyalty was common. 80% of businnes was repeat customers.

    Cons

    Management - Sales rules and SEs are not really appreciated. It ridiculous that the new SE's get no exposure sometimes while the experienced SE's get the exposure and the commissions. When you have Sales fighting over what SE gets what account you know that the leadership is weak. Benefits were ok but seem to cut Tuition without notice. Cheap company overall. Had to justify modest dinners with customers some of the time. Bonus structure changed and that really affected overall compensation by 12%. Numerous customer support issues to deal. No real growth path disclosed by managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some good local SE Management and local sales people.
