    I worked at Overland Storage full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Support Manager and Team members great to work with. Always willing to help each other out. No one thinks he is superior to others. Very team focused.

    Cons

    Little to no formal training for new products. No direction for the company. When it comes to new product, not focused, marketed or implemented will. Compensation is lacking for the type of work and experience they require

    Advice to Management

    Better focus and direction. Management needs to get together with employees more often to understand how they feel and obtain any feedback. Upper Management seems to be too often disengaged causing employee moral to be lacking.

    I worked at Overland Storage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free parking in the City Plaza Garage. Close to Light Rail and Caltrain.

    Cons

    Low morale. Smoke and mirrors.

    Advice to Management

    I noticed there's a serious lack of accountability and ownership. This happens from the top down and throughout the company. It needs to be addressed.

    I worked at Overland Storage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Randy Gast, COO, and Awanish Mistra, Sr. Director of IT as well as the shipping guys and a few others. Not much else.

    Cons

    Poorly run, horrible environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the top guys. Old blood needs to be replaced with new blood. They need an infusion of execs with energy and vision.
