    I have been working at Nutanix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is vibrant with a strong culture and ethics. It's hungry, honest, humble values make it a very different place to work. As with any fast growth company a lot of emphasis is on the employee to be a master of their own destiny. There are plenty of challenges to extend your skills and the benefits are very good for a company of its size,

    Cons

    The expectations are high and for some these are difficult to meet. As the company grows change is ever present and if you find change difficult, then it can be hard to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    Never judge a book by its cover, always be open minded about the individual

    Pros

    Amazing work culture. Lots of energy in the office everyday around the product and general job satisfaction. I've never felt more taken care of by a company - unbelievable benefits for all employees. The people at the company are top notch - from the executives all the way down the stack. There are also tons of opportunities for deserving employees. I truly enjoy going to work everyday.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons.

    Pros

    Best in class products, good at hitting release schedules, great benefits

    Cons

    Since going public, it's turning into a boiler-room, very political environment and people are getting hurt in the process.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire someone for their expertise, listen to them .... There are people clawing their way to the top and will do anything and get anyone out of their way to achieve their objective.

    Pros

    Incredible people, culture, management, best atmosphere where every opinion is valued, very good pay, and best benefits I've ever had in 15+ years of sales positions including pharmaceutical positions I've held in the past. Oh, and I should add being able to promote and work with the most awesome product I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Long and difficult interview process

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Agile engineering and market. Binny and Sunil have a very solid product and roadmap. Marketing under Howard is very strong, great message and consistency.

    Cons

    The Sales Management was very solid but is slipping. New managers from NTAP have polluted the once political free zone at Nutanix. They have brought a level of arrogance and incompetence to a firm that should have stuck to its organic sales roots.

    Advice to Management

    Don't contradict your message. Fostering a "No man left behind" theme and yet folks are being left behind and worse. Remember that miss treating your "step children at the firm" will only breed dissension.

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Cons

    I believe every company is like human. Some are extraordinary, some are normal. Nutanix is like a trickster, promises something else, gives something completely different.

    Advice to Management

    Be true to your employee

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very talented and grounded folks who keep excelling and help you learn on the go.

    Cons

    Very insecure people in mid level management and this is making life of individual contributors hard. You hire good people, please stick to keeping them motivated. Managers even go to the extent of keeping certain employees out of the loop to assert there power over others.

    Advice to Management

    This company was started by engineers. Keep the engineers happy. We are happy to work hard as long as we are respected. Everything else will fall in place after that.
