Positive Outlook

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

Pros

- Smartest engineers I've ever worked with.
- Excellent executive/sales/marketing teams.
- Meritocracy based culture.
- Senior management is very open to feedback and constructive criticisms.
- Cool startup culture (free lunches, untracked PTO, ping pong hall, flexible work hours, etc)

The engineering team at Delphix is top-notch. It includes the smartest group of people I have ever worked with. Some of them include the co-inventors of the ZFS filesystem, DTrace, early engineers from Sun's Fishworks team (which comprised of the top engineers at Sun), etc.

Delphix has a very engineering driven culture; so much so that the managers which lead the different teams at Delphix are themselves great engineers (and great managers).

The company as a whole is doing very well and growing rapidly year by year. Overall, it's an excellent place to work, which is very hard to find elsewhere.

Cons

I can't really think of anything major that I'd consider a con, but one minor thing I'd say is that there are three offices (San Francisco, Menlo Park - HQ, and Boston), so the team is pretty spread out, which makes it hard, sometimes, to collaborate. Although people from SF and Boston come out regularly to HQ, and vice versa.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing and don't lose sight of what makes Delphix an excellent place to work (see above).

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Delphix full-time

    Pros

    Great executive leadership in place. Technology has a clear cut advantage in its niche. A positive open culture has evolved under CEO Chris Cook. Most of the toxic legacy people , particularly those in sales management , are finally gone .

    Cons

    A handful of leftover legacy people are still resisting the culture shift from new leadership which is expected . Partner strategy has been challenging but theres a good plan in place moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    You have a great team in place , watch out for the legacy people that resist change. Trust the people you brought in to transform the company. Keep up the positive vibe through thick and thin .
