    Pros

    A tremendous vision along with dedicated and passionate people. New CEO 3 weeks in.

    Cons

    Legacy Culture which does not want to change. Operationally immature coupled with relentless drive to cut costs near term at the expense of long term. Poor historical Sr Leadership, revolving door is perpetual.

    Advice to Management

    Start a new company

    I worked at Veritas full-time

    Pros

    - Good compensation
    - Great people to work for
    - Good facilities

    Cons

    - Constantly shifting metrics make for hostile work environment with little feedback
    - Little or no direction from upper management, this filters down to middle management who often are given vague goals
    - User tools keep changing and for the worst every time
    - Software being supported stopped innovating, most developers are overseas as the US team was laid off.

    Pros

    Great products and technology. Highly knowledgeable product managers and good overall team working environment. Good internal training tools available to all employees.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Emphasis placed on bringing in less experienced employees but still a priority placed on executing business objectives (newer employees means more ramp up time)

    Pros

    Seems to be open to change but has a long way to go.

    Cons

    Lots of politics especially at management level and among different teams. This negatively affects overall morale in the company. Seems like more people leaving than coming in.
