Great company - if you're focused on Storage.

Professional Services Consultant (Current Employee)

ProsCompensation and benefits are excellent. The products that have been through multiple version releases are almost always excellent. Great people to work with, and a great company to work with if all you want to do is Storage.

ConsA lot of the internal applications and information is spread across multiple systems, and they're not always a cohesive unit. Some of our core applications are from very large vendors, and being web-based, suck badly. IT Helpdesk is narrow in the scope of what they support, and are sometimes no better than any other "Consumer level" drones. Professional Services consulting and sales teams are very regionalized - in the US, it's East, Central, West, and there is very little cross-region work. Professional Services is also very product oriented - if it's not related to our storage, we typically don't provide services. Again, very narrow scopes of work. Also very difficult to become a specialist in specific skill areas - generalists are preferred. Communication from the top is usually good, but there's a lot of middle management in between, which tends to distance the top management from the people down in the field.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on making the Professional Services practices widen the scope of services they offer. Storage is great, but it isn't everything.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
