Pros

I work on NetBackup and the product is stable, growing into new areas of Cloud backup and deduplication which allows us to do challenging and fun things at work

Cons

Slow release cycles and long testing phases breaks the pace of work sometimes.

Advice to Management

Challenge development to do more test driven development and reduce QE testing times.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great pay, great benefits. Managers are generally cool, easy to talk to. Little benefits like ping-pong tables, fitness centers, cafeterias, etc. are awesome!

    Cons

    Some of the product managers are only there to make money. In my opinion, managers should have strong technical background. Some are business people, which really grinds my gears.

    Advice to Management

    Don't turn a software company into a hardware company.

  2. Great Company, Great Leadership

    Pros

    New CEO is shaking things up in a good way. Very optimistic for the future.

    Cons

    Company is going through a lot of organizational changes that teams need to quickly realign and figure out new roles & responsibilities in order to execute.

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely so much on consulting firms to help with transformation, put the right people in place and we should be able to do this ourselves.
