I have been working at Pivotal as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The largest factor I've come across in working here at Pivotal has been creativity. I've had the ability to build and launch new programs and projects that would take ages to implement at other companies. Once the management staff provides the high level goals, employees come together to own and launch the solutions. Opinions and ideas are very well received, while micro-management is at a minimum.

Cons

As people and programs have come over from EMC and VMware there has sometimes been a slow transition in thinking and process improvement. Pivotal is moving at startup speed and some of the staff need a little more time to ramp up and get on board with some process/system changes.

Advice to Management

Continue to listen to your employees. We work on the ground level and know a thing or two.

    I have been working at Pivotal full-time

    Pros

    This is an exciting environment, with a unique blend of start-up energy combined with excellent leadership and a proven set of products and solutions. This company may only be a year old, but the "parentage" of EMC and VMware ensure that is also has the stability of a longer established company. The opportunity feels BIG! The culture is exciting and everyone's willing to jump in and help as needed. The office environment is very Google-esque and allows for some interesting perks.

    Cons

    It's very long hours and lots of moving parts as the company settles into a groove and steadies its go-to-market strategy and all supporting teams/elements.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in what's needed to support the GTM plan.
