I have been working at Data Domain full-time (less than a year)Pros
Cheaper food in cafeteria than past employer. Every Friday at 4:30 is ok party in cafeteria.
Free workout center vis-a-vis past employer.
Great products to work on.
OK hours for business side. 9am normal time start.Cons
2-week vacation (not including sick days) - compared to last employer with 3 weeks.
Photocopy machines lacking in work area - 2 machines per floor - have to walk half way across building.
IT Helpdesk very weak - response time very, very slow - several weeks to clear help desk ticket.
Lack of sufficient training program for new employees - training provided by giant corporate EMC in Massachuesetts.
Business-side management eats young (newer employees) - seen bad treatment of good, terminated employees
Lack of 1-on-1 or clear directions from business side management.
People there tends to rather just take paycheck than enjoy the products.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Better training materials or localized training availability in Santa Clara, rather than utilize the EMC corporate training modules.
This isn't Apple -- people aren't going crazy for these products.
Clearer directions to employees -- we cannot read your minds.Doesn't RecommendNeutral Outlook
