    I worked at Pivotal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company inherited good product portfolio from EMC and VMware and have good backing from its parents. The talent pool is awesome to take the company to exponential growth path

    Cons

    The environment is highly political and all the process smell of bureaucratic mindset. The top management is totally clueless on how to leverage the talent pool and don't even know basics of product development. They live in their own world without paying any attention to employees. Its more tough for employees located outside US region. One day you are rewarded and other day you are given pink slip. A dangerous place to build career.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your employees. Look into the cultural aspect and start paying attention to remote locations like Pune, China etc.

    Interviewers look disinterested. Lack of energy. Some get obsessed with checking their smart phones while interviewing.
