    I have been working at Commvault full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love working at Commvault. The culture is unlike any other company I have ever experienced and I really feel that the company values me as an employee. The work I do is meaningful, and contributes to the organization as a whole, which is a huge motivator. There are quarterly calls for my department, marketing, as well as for the organization as a whole. These calls are great, as they keep the company, which spans across the world, on the same page and keep employees informed.

    The headquarters in Tinton Falls is an incredible building. Each floor has game rooms that employees are encouraged to use, there is an on-site gym, and of course, there is the slide open for employee use at any hour. The cafeteria is also great, with good food and reasonable prices.

    Cons

    The company is growing, which is great, but means that often there are re-orgs and changes in management.

    Pros

    Product is by far the best in the industry
    Fellow Employees best of bred
    Customer Support and Professional Service Top notch

    Cons

    Upper management way out of touch with current ways business is done in today's market.
    Licensing changes are constantly happening disrupting sales.
    No focused direction or leadership no one has hands on the reins

    Advice to Management

    Clear the ivory tower and make room for new blood. Ask the field sales division before going to market on products to get advice on how to sell and license it.

    I worked at Commvault full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Innovation engine and is consistently ahead of the pack in the Data Protection space
    World class support organization (in many ways an unsung hero)
    Easy access to Sr. Leadership and egalitarian culture
    Awesome experience with Company culture if you are at Corp HQ - Great office, events like Bring your child day et al..

    Cons

    GTM execution challenges & critical need for beefing up brand equity
    No leadership development program for nurturing top talent

    Advice to Management

    a. Its time to recognize and nurture in house talent. Hiring outside time and again is NOT panacea. There's tremendous amount of raw talent at the company, if nurtured can help Commvault a huge success in FY19 (with the much anticipated transformation journey).
    b. Create an entrepreneurial environment for folks to take more risks. Everything can't be based out of a sound & predictable business plan. That's how Silicon valley competitors are catching up to get ahead of Commvault..
