    Pros

    Overall good working environment, people, and culture. Benefits and compensation is on par with other storage companies/tech firms. Moving up the chain as a leader in the Flash market.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover from senior management to field sales. Recent layoffs and some politics as people are very concerned about losing their jobs and trying to look busy and valuable. Tough storage/data management market and macroeconomic issues are creating lots of pressure and a bit of panic mode. Inspection from all levels on deals on a weekly basis.

    Some good things, some frustrations

    May 19, 2018 - Senior Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work/life balance, collaborative culture, volunteer-time-off policy. I've had opportunities to work in different technology areas--product code, quality, developer tools. The initiatives around quality have made it easier to find bugs sooner and back them out of the code base; we are on a good trajectory in this area. I have great relationships with my colleagues and the first few levels of my management chain.

    Cons

    Life as a Data ONTAP developer has its frustrations, starting with access to the engineering environment (via the vmware horizon client) and erratic build farm performance; these make it hard to be as productive as we'd like to be. Some programs were killed several years (and million$/billion$) too late, and some acquisitions should never have been made; it's frustrating to see all this waste and to be told there's not enough money to make this or that improvement for developers.

    Good management, communication failure

    Pros

    Low level management was superb: A textbook example of how managers are supposed to be. Excellent use of video conferencing. Good resources to make sure the job gets done.

    Cons

    Contract was terminated as part of a layoff, and company forgot to inform some employees till after they were locked out. Planning information was not passed down to the employees.

    Pros

    People are very focused on success, success is very well congratulated. No deal is off the table if you can sell the idea of it, you are left to drive your own business.

    Cons

    A little ambiguous in the way you need to run your own show. Management are very focused on forward looking and ensuring that numbers are met which is fair enough.

    Pros

    Fresh bananas in the office

    Cons

    Very weak middle management. You won't get paid the commission you expect if you're in sales. The company fails to uphold its own code of conduct. Everything takes forever to get done, if at all. Very arrogant and ineffective management and lots of people walking around full of their own self-importance. So much so you'd think they'd just cured cancer

    They don't call it a Great Place to Work for no Reason

    Pros

    The company boasts of an amazing work culture. There is a lot of focus on performance also. As such, people are very friendly and it is easy to go around and get your doubts cleared. The senior management is also very approachable and try their best to help out in any possible way. Its also a good place to improve skills as a Developer.

    Cons

    You will not be able to know what kind of work you will be involved in till you actually join the company and start working.
