    I have been working at Druva full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoy the entrepreneurial spirit of a young fast moving company focused on customer satisfaction and retention as well as building world class products quickly and being widely recognized by analysts and customers as being on the front of the technology curve.

    Cons

    Being a young company, we can not hire talent fast enough and you will sometimest the job done and keep customers happy.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more and hire faster. Continue to focus on customer satisfaction and building products driven by customer requirements.

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

    Pros

    I've worked for Druva for awhile now and I have yet to meet someone that I didn't enjoy being around. There are so many different personalities and interests that keep the office environment fun and exciting.

    Cons

    Like any job there is always a lot of work to be done, and sometimes you feel as though people that get all the credit are the ones not actually pulling their weight.

    Advice to Management

    Execs need to remember to stop and join the fun occasionally. The best parties and happy hours we have are when the execs and managers are with us chatting about something other than work.

    I have been working at Druva full-time

    Pros

    The company has moved to the next level, not only in rev and product, but the people as well. Some legacy employees were no longer fit for their position and in comes fresh faces eager to make an impact on an already solid product. Great list of customers along with employee perks makes this an ideal job as the organization made significant strides in bringing in transparency into and across the organization. FUN place to work as the culture has improved tremendously over the past year as I've enjoyed working here and seen similar cultures in companies such as Twitter, GoPro and Box.

    Cons

    Druva is growing at a fast pace and that will take time for the people to ramp up the technology. There also needs to be better collaboration with the Pune office.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on focusing on employees, it has driven engagement and happiness through the roof!

    Pros

    Most co-workers are friendly and helpful and open. The free lunch is a great way to stop and collaborate. People pitch in and work well on projects.

    Cons

    Culture is changing. More politics and top-down. Less respect. Some fear-based management and finger-pointing.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees - they give a lot and are less valued. Continue to collaborate on ideas - you need them as you grow and scale.

    Pros

    Collaborative culture, growing quickly, excellent product with enthusiastic customers, fun environment, good people aligned with where they want the company to go, no political BS that I've seen, great office, great market opportunity

    Cons

    while cloud backup is the future, still need to educate in the sales process. Doing a lot--pretty much like every startup/young company however.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what doing--cranking out great product, expanding go-to-market model, keeping it fun.

    I worked at Druva full-time

    Pros

    Perks are FRee lunch delivered everyday from the eatclub and sometimes there are friday afternoon happy hour. Beer in fridge. there are also some nice people and the office is in good location for the cal train.

    Cons

    very high turnover. Office culture is negative. Lacking positive advice or praise coming from the leadership to employees. Very poor communication from leadership to employees like what is the direction and reason for so many changes? . Lack of experience in leaders make them so paranoid, always questioning employees, and if you don't like it they say you can just leave today. So be cautions. So many have resigned.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate employees more, otherwise they will keep quitting. Trust employees and point out their good not only just their weekness.

    Pros

    A+ product. Customers are very happy and the development team does a terrific job. Fast paced environment where people are enabled to make quick decisions. Strong players and strong coaches. Folks with an entrepreneurial spirit will thrive

    Cons

    Company is growing quickly and working to put processes in place that correlate with the increase in employees and customers. Some of the old processes have broken as the company has scaled.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your open communication to employees. Continue to enable and empower your people. Keep up the great work.

    I have been working at Druva full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Transparent culture; everyone is accessible; collaborative environment; fun; fast paced. You're working with smart, ambitious people. Free snacks, daily catered lunch, free parking, volunteer opportunities. Ability to create and own projects. Creativity and problem-solving is always encouraged. I've grown so much in my time here. Totally worth the commute.

    Cons

    Expected growing pains of a start up--A lot to do and with limited resources. Sometimes the environment could be distracting (comes with the territory of an open work space), but if you're agile, smart, and have a roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-your-hands-dirty approach, you'll be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Great product and ambitious vision for the company. Continue your efforts to grow your people as the company grows. It's certainly appreciated and makes a difference to us!
