I worked at Data Domain full-time (More than 5 years)
Excellent products, smart people, well run as it grew. Fun place to work. People willing to cross departmental boundaries to get things done.
Became big enough to grow a bureaucracy and lost the fun start up culture. Other than that, it was a good place to work.
Advice to Management
You guys did well, taking the company to a successful IPO. Hope you all kept up the good work in your next companies.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Data Domain.
The interview was network heavy which makes sense given the product. Basic networking, network routing, and various other types of communication methods. Overall it was a pretty good interview and conducted in a friendly manner.
