    Pros

    Exciting, game-changing technology. Team collaborative culture among peers.

    Cons

    IT professionals assume if they've seen one HCI product, they already know all they need to know about SimpliVity. SimpliVity is vastly different than other HCI.

    Pros

    Interesting technology and great people.

    Cons

    They let too many people walk that were vital to Support. They have yet to "make" it up to those that remained.

    Advice to Management

    People make or break a company...taking care of the squeaky wheel will leave you with 1 squeaky wheel...and empty axels.

    Pros

    Support Directors in EMEA and US built a fantastic team with an inclusive culture that worked incredible well together. Customers benefited greatly from this close knit team.

    Cons

    At the time of leaving: the acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    EMEA, US support Directors and global EE's have left the company since the acquisition. Recognize the mistakes, re-group and rebuild the support teams.

    I worked at SimpliVity full-time

    Pros

    SimpliVity positioned itself as a startup driving towards an IPO for several years. It was a company with a unique culture driven by the CEO who was very process oriented and a believer in hard work. Some employees were expected to work long hours during the week and to be available all weekend. "Fun" was never part of the equation, but employees were motivated by the desire to be a leader in the hyper convergence technology space. I cannot speak for the culture after the company was acquired by HPE, but have heard from others that once the CEO left it was no longer the same company.

    Cons

    Even when it was pretty clear that an IPO was not happening, the senior management team continued to state that it was driving to an IPO. Some employees felt betrayed even if this was the best possible outcome at that point.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.
