Current Employee - Senior Field Engineer in New York, NY

I have been working at Pivotal full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The People, The Technology, The Offices, the Benefits, The Products, The Culture.

Cons

None worth mentioning, adding SSO between EMC and Pivotal would be cool

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make on-boarding a little more streamlined. Add free online training (MOOC) for our awesome products to developers.

    Pros

    Establishing leadership in cloud independence and big+fast data.
    Bigger vision than big-data-only vendors.
    Career path can be diverse, you make a mark and then you choose.
    Great people to work with, very active and helpful internal social network.
    Free breakfast and free lunch every Tue. Everything Apple (unless you don't want it)!
    Learning new things everyday!

    Cons

    Still in the process of getting itself established in parallel with EMC - i.e. sales channel, PSO, network, HR, etc. This could be a double-sided sword depending on how you view it.

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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, smart people, good technology

    Cons

    Long hours since you need to do everything yourself. On boarding process is ok, but ongoing training/support is minimal. Technology is solid, but there isn't much differentiation so it's extremely competitive. Great services (PDL and PL) but we're not incented to sell them while making a transition to a real software company. Sr. Sales Management filled with ex-EMC sales management ... enough said.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier to make money during the transition to becoming a software company. It's a long sales cycle unless you are lucky to have installed accounts. Recognize and reward the long slog.
