    I have been working at Nutanix full-time

    Pros

    This company truly cares about keeping employees happy. Even as they grow at an incredible rate they focus on making sure they pay attention to employee satisfaction as best they can. There is always a great energy, it's full of great people, and everyone is kept in the loop on everything going on in the company. It's a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Things move at an incredible pace and sometimes it can be difficult to keep up. Things are still growing and changing too quickly for there to really be set processes for a lot of what happens, but it's an exciting environment.

    I have been working at Nutanix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Visionary CEO who is working hard to position Nutanix as a market leader. Fun place to work if you can afford time to attend events. Great medical and dental plan. Daily lunch is catered and unlimited snacks.

    Cons

    Unlimited vacation policy is a scam. Getting any time off is pulling teeth. Management gives you major guilt trip when it comes to requesting time off. Additionally, this policy doesn’t apply towards maternity/paternity or family leave and company only subsidizes two weeks of pay. Perhaps Nutanix HR is oblivious to time off policies at other companies in the Valley. There is no bonus or 401K match program. Don’t be fooled by management over pumping Nutanix’s future stock price. Refresher of stock grants is extremely low. Make sure to negotiate hard for Salary and Equity.

    Advice to Management

    Exec team is great but first level managers are pathetic. Company needs to invest resources to train first level managers.

    Pros

    Amazing people in every area of the company who are passionate about their jobs and willing to go the extra mile for both customers and other employees. A great culture of transparency, consensus and a "can-do" approach.

    Cons

    The company is growing so quickly that it is a challenge to keep up with communications, employee reviews, etc. But systems are quickly being implemented to keep the momentum on track.

    Pros

    Happy employees, open and welcoming management, great resources, free medical and dental, training...nothing not to like. This is literally the best just I have ever had. Wish I could have joined years ago.

    Cons

    Run hard, run fast, be careful not to allow it to take over your family life (but that is on you, not the company)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, and please keep the culture the way it is.

    Pros

    Overall product and sales leadership is exceptional. Nutanix has its sights set on huge ideas and is executing very well in the market. They are a leader in transforming legacy datacenters to modern, cloud-based architectures.

    Cons

    Fast growth makes communication a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive with equity :)

    Pros

    Great Team, Great Product, Game Changing Technology. Its rare to be able to be a part of an industry changing company like this. The culture is simply amazing.

    Cons

    Not working from the HQ office can have its challenges for those who are not used to being remote workers. Personally I still love it.

    Pros

    revolutionary technology, that continues to improve. That, plus the great culture and sr. sales leadership keeps me here

    Cons

    tough work life balance, hyper-growth causing some expected growing pains, hiring isn't what it once was..

    Advice to Management

    back to the roots. what worked in the beginning can still work as we grow - don't turn into another faceless behemoth

    I have been working at Nutanix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Very focused leadership team - Driven employees - all working towards a common goal - great products, and great cust sat - Good camaraderie amongst the employees - excellent support system

    Cons

    - The only one thing I can potentially think about is hyper growth, and that one has to work a lot harder to keep the network and the culture growing

    Advice to Management

    - Keep the focus - Do not get distracted or fixated on a single competitor - Keep up the quality of people as you grow

    Pros

    Nutanix is an incredible, fast paced company to work for. Working with the brightest minds in the industry is amazing. Every single person, from the Dheeraj to engineering, is approachable and more than happy to help each other.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons off the top of my head.

    Advice to Management

    Keep disrupting IT as a whole. I'm so happy we've moved to taking on more than just storage. Keep focusing on the internal pulse of the employees, ensuring that work/life balance remains solid. I couldn't be happier where I'm at, keep it up!
