    Pros

    Health insurance from day 1 as a contractor
    Training
    Overtime offered

    Interview against peers for permanent positions
    Nepotistic- if you know someone- you are more apt to be hired

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fairly
    Realize that people have different learning styles- some learn better with hands on training.

    Pros

    Good product.
    Original founders and long time employees keep what is left of the good culture alive. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Current leadership in Americas is driving the people, culture and company into the ground. The iceberg is in site and they continue to drive the company towards it.

    Advice to Management

    Change. Commvault needs leaders who care, who are competent in a "smaller" company (we are no Oracle - don't manage and operate as if we are). Don't forget the people who built this company, you are losing them.

    I worked at Commvault full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    All the negative reviews are from those who were laid off. The company is finally trimming the fat and they are coming here to complain.

    Many people have been here a long time, for a reason. They have built a company and community.

    Results Driven - too much process crept in, but its still very lean compared to larger companies

    Compensation - In line with industry

    Cons

    Engineering has been allowed to run wild. They build and build, but nothing we can sell. I'm not sure how the CTO and Eng VP can talk about innovation when they have not built an actual new product, ever.

    Most employees really want to do the right thing for the company, unfortunately some of the newer hires from Oracle etc don't share that mindset. Sales not a happy as it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Put the focus back on the customers. Do not allow engineering to build features for themselves. Give the sales people new products to get excited about.

    Pros

    Quality people, good pay, decent benefits, great technology.

    Cons

    Functional "towers" at Exec level inhibit cross-functional alignment. Weak at partnering, "more is better" rather than focus. Activist investor has caused major disruption.
