Pros

The pay is on scale with the other major storage vendors.
You can work from home.

Cons

Don't ask for goals or objectives...
Try to figure out what your bonus is based on, and win a donut.
Very rigid... Its their way or the highway.
They seems to think that they can market... Their market SHARE says otherwise.
They have a high end product, that's it.
My management should have been fired, but they are "loved".
Keep your thoughts to yourself, they don't want your input.
If you want to be irrelevant, get a job here, because no one cares!
They will continue the downhill slide that they are on.
Very few people follow through on their commitments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take input from the outside world... its leaving you behind.

    Pros

    Great culture, employees are treated well; there's space for discussion and senior management is really close to the employees and very available. Salary and benefits are second to none and profit is shared fairly.

    Very good internal relations between groups.

    Cons

    Pace may be slower than other companies and growth limited but the goals are long terms and not immediate gratification. Company is somewhat older than others but younger workers are coming in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organic growth alone may be hard to achieve; need to diversify more.

    Pros

    Freedom to learn and grow inside career. Great education opportunities Overall a great company. Great products and a real desire to be honest in everything they do. (Very different then other high tech compaines)

    Cons

    Far too much travel, 100% plus Sun-Fri normal. 16 hour days normal. Hard to take a vacation. Vacation tops out at 4 weeks, health insurance is very expensive, very expensive. I have had to hire someone to do almost everything around my house because of being gone so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people or pay people in reflection to the amount of time they are gone from home
