Suggestions for improvement

  • Don't let the good people leave.Make sure engineering has a road map, but don't try to set firm deadlines months ahead of time - estimating development time becomes less accurate the further into the future one attempts to predict.Make use of all that agile training we had (and stop letting people over-commit on "sprints"). This would go a long way towards getting accurate time estimates, too.Listen to your employees.Have true HR people

What I like about the company

Good experience in the backup/recovery portion of the IT field. Good work environment. If you’re a self-starter, quick, analytical thinker, you’ll succeed in support. There are some great people in support management that make you want to be better at your job, in the best way.

What I dislike about the company

Some days take their toll. (Stress!) Generally, if something needs done within the company, the senior support team gets it. This can lead to engineers being spread thin at times. The pay for the "little workers" is very unfair especially for the work they do. Hardly talk about compensation. Too many changes often, they have let go a bunch of good engineers due to business downsizing a.k.a sales numbers not being met.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Look at your peers in the industry, other vendors in the space and in similar hardware/data center models. Think of the sweat equity your team puts in and then reflect on your roster of sales people turning over almost 75% in 2 years.The company is run like a prison camp with snacks. The culture changes on a dime and there is a fog in the air of I'm getting fired all the time, please know that it is ALL the time. Stop firing good hard working employees.

What I like about the company

Great place to work!! Great people, Great Culture, Energetic & Collaborative Environment

What I dislike about the company

Company mantra: Secrets and Lies. I've seen middle management out right lie to their employees, with a straight face even. It's hard to work for people you *know* you can't trust.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would allow the ability to work remotely and longer extension times to get a specific project done.

What I like about the company

The employees work together well and if we need help our superiors are always there to help answer our questions and very lenient if we don't meet a certain product deadline none discriminatory to different sexes or nationalities.

What I dislike about the company

I would suggest being able to work remotely so can spend time with families and not lose hours with children because we're in an office for x amount of hours.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Could add working remotely to its locations for those sick, or those expectant parents.

What I like about the company

My company really cares about its employees, no discrimination between men and women, if we don't know how to do a job we get trained, and our manager is very lenient to get projects done. If we don't succeed we try again with constructive criticism.

What I dislike about the company

I don't like we can't work remotely especially if we feel sick and can't come in but want to get a paycheck.

Support from management

At times, there were either no guidance or support, and at other times too much micromanagement.

Teamwork

For the most part, there were plenty of good teamwork among folks in product develpment or engineering, but not so much in sales.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Change of leadership.

What I like about the company

I was able to work from home often.

What I dislike about the company

Management issues, some seemed to not care and not involved, but some so involved that every decision had to be made through them.
