    Pros

    Great salaries
    Great technology
    Motivated tech team
    Seasoned sales reps
    Nice office
    Hard and fast paced workers who want to win

    Cons

    Political
    Fear of the unkown ( aquistion creating a shark tank like work environment)
    Executive team removed and lacks ability to provide senior level direction to lower employees. Really were was the management team?
    Too many people suceeding by not taking responsiblity for there own actions and mitigating there actions or failures by throwing people under the bus.
    Acceptance of new employees from other company cultures is not good.
    Upper management could use some diversity. Company needs diversity in sales and other customer facing areas.

    Advice to Management

    This is a great company built by very passionate people. It is not ok to allow management teams to fight and have turf wars and then allow lower level employees to get caught in the middle. Allow your employee's to grow and if they make a mistake please stop the internal dog fights and gang wars. Take responsiblity and work to bring your groups together as a team.

    Pros

    Now I'm only an intern for a short amount of time @ Isilon so I can't claim to know too much, but the following are a few of the awesomeness I have seen:
    - Isilon have grown to be a billion dollar company in a very short time and is quickly become a major player in cluster computing.
    - Isilon engineering crew is really talented.
    - Promotions are frequently given. I have seen 6 promotions announcement e-mail during the first 2 months of my internship.
    - Comfortable workplace with lots of fun people and a motto of play hard-work hard.

    Cons

    Some complaints about minor annoyance when joining with EMC and integrating into a larger corporate settings. Otherwise I haven't had enough time here year to find out.
