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

    Pros

    Nice Area - Silicon Valley, brand-new building, lots of free junk food (a pro for some).

    If you are okay with/like to brown-nose and are good at it (I do not mean this in a demeaning way, it's simply how some people operate) it could be a good fit.

    Cons

    Almost everything else falls into this category.Culture started off decently, but it's rapidly gone down hill. There's an absurd amount of favoritism at this company; hard/intelligent work seems to go unnoticed/unappreciated across the majority of teams, however brown-nosing seems to go a very long ways. Senior management tend to hire/promote their friends, which results in a bunch of people (some in high places) that know absolutely nothing about what they are overseeing/talking about, which brings a lot of distress to those who put their all into their jobs.

    Management (even mid-level) here is extremely high-level, and tends not to provide any guidance or even general availability which makes this is a terrible place for someone who is interested in career/skill development (and in many cases - simply finishing a task).

    My "Business Outlook" rating is based solely on how well I think the company will push their product, in terms of culture/work environment, I am almost certain it will get worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate hard-workers and stop with all the penny-pinching (maybe move some of the Sales budget; they are treated like royalty, while the rest of the teams are treated like peons...a phenomenon that's very highly noticed by everyone), I understand this is a newly public company and the numbers need to be met, but you won't be able to meet those numbers over the long term with a disgruntled workforce.

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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Good company growth and a good product.

    Cons

    The directors/senior directors in this company are creating a riot in this company. The founders have a lot of trust in them but these directors are misusing their powers and end up taking a lot of bad decisions. Lots of favoritism in hiring. No one follows" no jerk" policy. I see a lot of people who get rejected by the team during interviews but still get hired just because the director knows them. This is a major affliction to the work quality and is a demotivating factor for the smarter counterparts. No appreciation is given to the hard working people. Again, promotions and raises are given to the people who are upper-management's favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please! Please open your eyes and see what the management below you is upto. Sometimes, all they need is a person above to tame them down and get steered in the right direction. Otherwise, the company might lose some good people soon. Some kind of intervention is needed before it becomes too bad.
