Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

A good place to learn enterprise software technology, and learn from some very smart peers.

Cons

Vivek and his inner circle are aloof, arrogant and believe their own bulls*. Talented managers and executives either get frustrated and quit or get fired because they speak truth to power or they get in the way of sycophants. Rank and file is demoralized after losing good leaders and pay cuts.

Advice to Management

Vivek should have sold the company or kicked himself upstairs years ago.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great place to hang out and do the minimum necessary in just about any group. Almost impossible to get fired, except marketing occasionally chases people out. If you're in Engineering, you can find some good stuff to do that will give you a good product on your resume.

    Cons

    Lack of senior management direction, beginning with a CEO who lacks any experience outside the organization. Product Management and Marketing leadership is weak and has little influence on the Engineering organization. Overall senior management is comparatively weak vs. peers in the industry. Marketing budget is limited and spent unwisely. Product Management lacks leadership. HR is treated as a legal compliance group, with zero investment in developing internal resources. Compensation is a favoritism system and nobody knows how it works. Company focused on avoiding mistakes, instead of focused on successes.

    Advice to Management

    Vivek - sell the company and retire. Acknowledge that you've done well for yourself, and then get out of the way. Or else, decide you need to get rid of the senior management team and hire people who will challenge you.
