    People who join HDS, look forward to staying at HDS and building their careers. Period.

    Product Manager (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsThe one thing that struck me most is that people look at HDS for long term careers. And I have found out why - it is all about a culture of interpersonal respect and empowerment. Basically, I have the liberty to carry a viewpoint, be respected for it and can look forward to work collaboratively and grow. This is a company that promotes from within.

    ConsNothing, really. I have heard people saying that bringing in change is difficult but that is just not true. If you have a good idea, people around will help promote it pretty fast and you can even take help from other units seamlessly. It does happen and I can testify.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Project Manager

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsSmall, warm, friendly to work. Laid back but not too much. Great culture.

    ConsThe building location is pretty industrial but once you get used to it it's fine. It's not partially glamorous but what's most important is who you work with!

    Former employee

    IT Professional (Former Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsGreat hardware products. Great peers to work with in professional services. Good training on their products. Plenty of travel for those who enjoy traveling.

    ConsPoor software products. Lack of career growth within company. They typically hire outside of the company to get what they think are perceived talent. Salary is below industry standards. Salary raises are non existent. High turn over rate with the professional services ranks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHDS products are third rate. No matter what they do will bring HDS to a first tier company.
