    I worked at Commvault full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growing market share.. profits are increasing... so sticking around may be rewarding in few years... i.e if your manager needs you....If you are servile... Customers used to buy Simpana because it was the cheapest.... Backup and Recovery is a low margin business... so the market leaders do not add new features unless there was a big revenue opportunity. Commvault was/is ready to develop anything for customers. It is a good virtue in this market and it gave them foothold and now it is too late for big guys (losers) to switch to Commvault's model. Commvault has added lots of features over the last several years... It takes long time for a competitor to do the same...
    All Commvault can offer to customers is in one place... a single product that has so many features... Its brings up its own problems however.. But it is better than having multiple products that cannot be used together...

    Customers are voting with their wallets... no one can dispute that...

    Cons

    The pros say it all....Managers know nothing outside of their s/w... and they think they are very technical... and want to give technology leadership to R&D projects... No original research.. .just a reverse-engineering shop... According to them manufacturing leather covers for latest iPhone should be considered as 'staying at the forefront of cutting edge technology". If you work here for few years you will be useless outside... you will learn all bad ways of doing things... very little original R&D... It is just copying features from competitors...

    Products are developed because the employees work like dogs... not because there is a good R&D process.... Commvault puts every new thing in the old bottle...

    Don't join here if you don't like copying other companies products...Last time I heard they were copying Drop Box. :-)
    The only thing that CommVault can be proud of is managing a large monolithic product.

    Advice to Management

    Stop copying other companies products... Develop a original product...
    Advice to VP of Engineering... if you have to test the product to make developers do better unit testing.... something is fundamentally wrong with your culture...

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

    Pros

    Great product, and vision.
    CEO and some senior management

    Cons

    Horrible middle management and sales management
    Nepotism and also a strong good ol' boy network
    Extremely hierarchical. People with zero skills get promoted.
    Brow beating megalomaniacs in sales should have been fired after quarter upon quarter of failure
    Severely lacking in structure and processes
    Warning - anyone thinking of working here after you have been at a large, well run, structured company should think twice.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the sand. As the company gets bigger these issues will multiple if not fixed.
    Hire a real, objective 3rd party company to come and assess the damage NOW. Actually talk to the employees. Al and Bob need to know the truth about whats really going on before it gets worse.
