Current Employee - Solutions Architect in Itasca, IL

I have been working at CommVault full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Innovative technology with growing market demand and penetration, coupled with a "small company" feel and roots. Very competitive compensation structure for both technical and sales staff. Company has zero debt, huge cash reserves, and invests highly in internal growth.

Cons

If you aren't internally driven to succeed on your own (reach out for opportunities, work your territory, have a pipeline), you won't do well here. Success is tied to performance. Turnover on non-driven sales professionals can be high; retention of Systems Engineers and technical folks is much higher. Comp plans change annually, sometimes with unattractive consequences; for example, a FY2013 comp plan change caused SE bonuses to be tied to an entire region's performance, rather than your individual performance with your Sales counterpart, which had the unintended effect of a compensation reduction for the highest performers in a territory, as their numbers were reduced by the lower performers in their region.

    I have been working at CommVault full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    a good product thanks to some legacy, and good people (past and current)

    Cons

    horrible engineering management, most of them haven't seen the world outside Commvault, so it's like frog in the pond situation for them. They think whatever they are doing is the best thing in the world.
    You can imagine the engineering practice when basic things (like install, backup/restore) doesn't work every build without needing to fix it.

    There is no ownership given to individuals and managers control everything. Individuals hardly get a complete picture when they work and mangers stitch things together with few people (they are good only doing this) in their good books.

    The new fad in Commvault is statistics, to judge the performance of individuals. If there hasn't been a bug fix/close for a day then individuals get mails from managers questioning there commitment and drop in productivity.

    VP installs every build even before it's made available to anyone else, what is he doing?

    Lot of favoritism in everything

    Hiring is a mess - people with no experience get selected if your spouse has good relation with upper management

    Lot of people (~30-35%) are there because they will do anything without questioning their managers.

    Release cycles are a royal mess, nobody except the VP knows why are we doing this

    Because of all the above your work/life balance is gone for a toss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some real managers, grow up look outside
