Pros

There is always something interesting to work on at Isilon. The Engineering team is relatively small, but growing rapidly. The overall system architecture is very good, and can be a pleasure to work with.

Cons

With at least one of the second-line managers, if you get on his bad side it's very difficult to get back on his good side. And sometimes folks seem to end up on his bad side for no obvious reason.

    Pros

    Free coffee/snacks, parking, health insurance and a really great view of the Puget Sound. Every once in awhile there is also a company party, about once a quarter.

    Cons

    In Sales you get continually hosed over. Promotion opportunities are extremely rare to come by are unfairly given. You will also be vastly underpaid for your services if in inside sales.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Lip service is common, need to actually listen to people. Recognize valuable, tendered employees and reward them for their service.

    Pros

    Great Location, Great Perks with Gym, Parking, Stock Options etc.. Friendly People, Free Snacks and Soda. The outside sales team is great to work with and there are some small opportunities for Travel.

    Cons

    The Management is very very very very poor at communicating, there is NO development or training programs. I have worked at Start Ups and they had a much more defined compensation plan and career path than Isilon. There is a lot of churn as with any Tech Company but be prepared to spin your wheels for a while and be told day in a day out that your opportunity is right around the corner.

    FRUSTRATION will become a normal state of mind.

    They desperately need some outside consulting on sales processes and sales operational management from the ground up.

    It doesn't help when my manager is the worst I have ever had.

    Advice to Management

    Start over and let someone from the outside come in and rework the system. It's broken, people aren't held accountable and good people are leaving. Sujal is great but there are no real incentives for excelling at your job, there is no light at the end of the tunnel and burn out comes quick.
