    Pros

    interesting technology and market use.

    Cons

    management is out of touch with reality in many respects. place is a revolving door with high turnover and poor training and poor communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start being honest in company update discussions, listen to employees, be honest with them about company status, and reward sales people properly to incent sales growth and not yourselves.

    Pros

    Pivot3 offers a fast-paced environment with a management team that allows their employees to shine. The Austin office is full of friendly faces willing to help out when needed. Upper management is working hard to make great strides in 2015 and has done a good job instilling a positive, can-do attitude in the rest of the team.

    Cons

    Because this company is still in start-up mode, they are still working on streamlining back-end processes. This can make some projects more challenging than they would be otherwise. Also, new employees must be willing to take on a wide variety of tasks under minimal supervision since the company is currently understaffed.

    I have been working at Pivot3 full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    People always help each other out in Pivot3. Everyone have the same goal to make this company succeed. As of any other companies, there are up and downs, but this year is shaping like a huge year for Pivot3. This is going to be a great year for Hyper-Converged, and Pivot3 is the inventor of Hyper-Converged!!! Truly believe we have all the right ingredients to obtain great success - especially the people. Like the "family always come first" culture!

    Cons

    As of many companies with multi/global sites, communications between sites may be lacking at times. This is an area we could improve on.

    Pros

    Exceptional technology; really hot market; upper management actually has a plan; company is getting great attention; good working atmosphere; still small but long track record with a lot of AAA customers; everyone gets stock options; it's a real start-up! so: people who can wear many hats and pull-up their sleeves do best.

    Cons

    It's a real start-up! Many things still need to be built and figured out. People have to find ways to make it happen without all the support they get in bigger places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire smart people instead of pampered experts who can't do much without a lot of help.

    Pros

    This place has a VERY bright future as the world is starting to figure out that capacity efficient hyper-converged infrastructure is important. HUGE brain trust, a real powerhouse of IP with over 20+ patents.

    Cons

    Marketing has traditionally been more stealth with niche markets, but our new marketing team changing our messaging and people will soon realize that we invented hyper-converged infrastructure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring alphas!

    I have been working at Pivot3

    Pros

    The executive leadership team currently in place brings a ton of industry experience to bear--both from a technology perspective as well as growing and scaling companies and emerging solutions. Strong established customer base, proven solutions, and the technology quite simply works extremely well. Strong-value based leadership style where everybody works hard, politics are kept to an absolute minimum, and managers have the authority to execute and are expected to do so.

    Cons

    Small company that has better funded competitors and big entrenched players as well--always makes for a tough hill to climb, even when the technology is much better than those well funded competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now is the time to accelerate. The technology and market position is sound, you just need to put more people in the street to position and communicate value.
