"May You Live in Interesting Times"

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Silver Peak Systems

ProsCool, leading edge technology
Smart and highly focused engineering
Free beer, table tennis, and snacks
Free spirited start up environment

ConsA Niche company trapped among giants with strong brand, $$$ and market position
Autocratic management style and frequent turnover, indecision
Pay plan had negative impact on forward selling
Has a limited market opportunity trapped between several sectors

Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to be all things to all people, pick a market direction and stick with it, try to align strongly to one of the main data storage players and look for acquisition, best route for this company
