management kept people in the loop moreso than I have seen anywhere else

many, many long hours at the time but that was pre-ipo, stock should be in a better place if not for market

    Pros

    Great place to work, people were fair, you were well treated and the work was fun.

    The product was very good and the team was very well organized and managed.

    The company culture was excellent and if I did not have to relocate, I would not have left Netezza. I'm certain that in a couple of years, with the market recovery, the stock will do very well.

    Cons

    Long hours, some people were "special" but thankfully they left.

    The sales team tended to be a little less technical than I would have liked and some times they ended up making meaningless commitments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job, keep it up

    Pros

    pre IbM Acquisiton - a fantastic solution for DW and a great bunch of people to deal with. Highly innovative roadmap for DW.

    Cons

    Post IBM acquisition - flakey promises on innovation, most employees of Netezza were either quick to exit (within 12 months of acquisiton) or paid to stay, either way, it was a traumatic expericence, leading to the destruction of a fantastic business and customer partnership. - IBM doesnt work - and they dont care about customers. 'Empty suits' as a long term cusomer descibes them is absolutley the best desciption. Beware of future technology promises and any suggestion that NETEZZA remains. Total dismatlement of US and EMEA Netezza Organisation is either partially or completely achieved. Sad but totally true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You dont underand and frankly dont care. What a travesty! Anyone considering a career move to IBM Netezza needs to ask how many sales have you achieved in the last 12 months.
