    I worked at Pivotal

    Pros

    Tremendous flexibility in how you do your job. Open environment with the ability to reach out and get assistance from anyone. Very team oriented.

    Cons

    Hard work as not everything is laid out for you. Long hours. Continual battle to establish name in marketplace as Pivotal is not a known company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to communicate plans and strategies with everyone. Continue to keep in touch with team members to avoid 'big company' walls.

    I worked at Pivotal full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I met some good people who went on to work elsewhere - expanding my network. I really wanted to see this company & product succeed.

    Cons

    steady stream of exits & layoffs... company once had such promise but it was just a shell of its former self. Merger & Acquisition crushed the initiative and innovation out of this company.

    I have been working at Pivotal

    Pros

    Product that worked. Talented people. Locations scattered throughout the United States. Reasonable pay. Paid more money than my previous job.

    Cons

    Became too bureaucratic and top heavy after company purchased. There were way too many people let go after the purchase.

  6.  

    Good local team dynamic but longevity is unclear.

    I worked at Pivotal

    Pros

    Broad technology base, good local team dynamics and solid CRM product offering. Work and life balance is acceptable.

    Cons

    Local office has reduced in size which makes local office long term a question. Tight spending limited chances to attend training and upgrading hardware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal upfront with local team and if closing office offer incentives to do transition. Otherwise, provide vision of location responsibility and longer term plan.
