    Strong benefits and pay, weak leadership

    Nov 14, 2022 - Senior Engineering Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company pays well and attracts good talent. My coworkers are some of the best I've ever worked with. The technology is interesting.

    Cons

    The company lacks vision to be a leader, instead choosing to act as a fast-follower in the storage space even though statements are to the contrary. Executive leadership does not understand the storage market and appears to be acting as a follow-the-trend of other, larger companies. Top talent is not recognized or rewarded below the executive level. Roadmaps change often and resulting job security and morale suffer.
