    I have been working at Commvault full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice location, building and vacant cubicles

    Cons

    * Tech Support just used as a buffer for angry customers

    * "My way or the highway" attitude from managers

    * Too many management people than engineers its like school with more professors than students

    * Product had lots of issues but marketed as "enterprise ready". New features are quickly added to compete in market without adequate testing. Priority was to add new features to product rather than fix existing issues

    * Toxic culture pushed down from senior management

    * Unrealistic expectations of working hours as only few members in team are driving force rest of team(friends+family) are surviving

    * Stressful environment(Engineer who work), no hikes, no training, low pay, huge workload

    * No growth if you are not part of friends+family club. Unnecessary positions are created and assigned to friends club for their survival

    * Promotion and hiring is not based on skills but it is purely based on Favoritism and nepotistic relationships

    Advice to Management

    Be the Leader, Not the Boss

    Competitors are receiving huge funds as people believe in their values and they are successful as they have great ideas and talented engineers to implement idea
