    I have been working at Delphix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great group of people, high performing while helpful and collaborative. Focus on employees, work-life balance, product quality and a great balance of process and agility in engineering Complex and interesting product with the opportunity to learn and grow technically and as an individual. The cross-organizational collaboration is another avenue to learn

    Cons

    the flexibility of multiple locations means I dont get to see all my colleagues as much as I would like to

    I worked at Delphix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is one of the best company to work for if you are a new college grad. You'll get to work with different parts of the team and learn how to write high quality code. Work hours and location flexibility is amazing. HR/IT team response time is less than a day. Kitchen is always stocked up with snacks. I learned much working at Delphix and I'm really thankful for that.

    Cons

    Some skills engineers work with may be proprietary and will not help your career when placed in data platform team. Some parts of engineering processes are extremely slow. Only once a week catered lunch. Company's growth momentum isn't strong. Extremely slow e2e testing. Agile development isn't really agile. Large gaps on automated testing. Hugely uneven workloads across the teams. Engineering interview questions are...

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the biggest asset to any company. Invest on hiring skilled people, try hard to retain those who are already doing great, and don't hesitate to let go who are not.

    I worked at Delphix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Despite this being a negative review, I actually enjoyed what I did while working for Delphix. They gave me the freedom and flexibility I wanted in my job, however the pros really stop there.

    Cons

    Upper management in engineering was completely replaced around 2016, everything has gone downhill from there, and there has been a mass exodus since. The company's culture is basically gone, which was incredibly sad to witness. Upper management in engineering does not see engineers as their greatest resource. Despite rave annual reviews and winning company awards, merit-based increases did not happen for me, and...

    Advice to Management

    Step back and ask yourself, would I want to be hired in the organization I am managing right now? If you can't even acknowledge the shortcomings of your department, you are part of the problem. This company wouldn't exist without the employees, don't squander them.

    I worked at Delphix full-time

    Pros

    Product works as advertised but the TAM has shrunk over the years...

    Cons

    Where can one begin... 1. CEO drove out sales leaders who were responsible for the real growth in the company.... 2. Previous fired CEO continues to linger about like a bad cold...pulling the strings of the current leadership to continuously project blame on sales execution. Ignorant to look at what the real problems are and figure out solutions 3. Previous CEO is of low morale character and is a very bad human...

    I worked at Delphix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Recruiting team is working hard to hand-pick people into the teams. This hard work results to highly skilled and gelled teams. - Whole company leadership has a keen focus on diversity & inclusion. While other companies talk about it, this one - brings it to action! - Work & life balance is 5 star comparing to some other companies - Leadership is very transparent, thoughtful and follows thru on promises,...

    I worked at Delphix full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is nothing positive about Delphix! Shaved 10 years off my life expectancy!

    Cons

    Continual beat down from sales leadership with always changing goals, entire old guard sales folks have left due to the idiots at the top. Nothing but extortionist mentally with customers by CA lead leaders!

    Advice to Management

    Cut your losses and sell to IBM or Oracle if they will give you anything!

    I have been working at Delphix full-time

    Pros

    A tiny fraction of the employment pool consists of the brightest, creative and collaborative - likely due to the young engineering staff and start-up feel of some of the offices. For a select few who pound out the months or years at this place, there is a glimmer of hope in the camaraderie that can be found with these fantastic individuals. Unfortunately, most get pushed out, demonized, demoralized, and eventually leave....

    Cons

    The constant leadership change, personnel turnover, toxic politics, and lack of trust between management and their employees on the front lines erodes any momentum their initiatives seek to gain. Many execs coast on the coattails of hard working employees' efforts. Leadership changes nearly ever year, sometimes more often, and the pivots yield unpredictable reorganizations that seem to be for the pleasure of power grasping...

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in your existing employee base and empowering them with the resources they require to be successful. Their success is your success and will grow the business. And when your Glassdoor rating drops to 3 stars because of horrendous turnover and toxic culture, don't ask your entire management base to ask their employees to start writing positive reviews to mask the negative ones. It's unethical and just reveals...

    I have been working at Delphix full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Interesting problems to solve. Great people. Great benefits. I can also say I appreciate the release cadence which makes sure customers have the latest fixes and features.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that the pace of things seems a little breakneck, but I have only been with the company for 90 days. I think as I get accustomed to things it will seem more normal.
