What it takes to be part of the market leader

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsFast-paced. Part of team that is market leader in Virtualization. Many opportunities to rotate into other positions. Nice Perks. Great gym. Open Snack Bar. Great cafe. Campus is expanding, too.

ConsCutthroat. Folks are competitive and want to get ahead. More competitive than cooperative. You need to stay on top of your game to survive and must have thick skin. Not necessarily a 'con', but must adjust quickly if you are joining from a different environment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
