I have been working at Overland Storage

Pros

This team is always looking forward to find ways to gain an advantage over the competition. It's an established company that works and acts like a start-up. Willing to do what it takes to be successful.

Cons

Lots of ambition, so if you're looking for a place to get lost in the shuffle, this isn't the place for you. You'll get recognized for the great things you do and be held accountable for mistakes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep hiring "A" players

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your employees as a solution to your problem and not a problem- after all- they build your product and make it work.

    Pros

    With the purchase of SnapServer, Overland has developed a two tier culture between those that were long time Overland employees that had made substantial sacrifices in pay and benefits to keep the company alive, and those that were hired after the purchase in the bay area at market rates. Overland does tend to pay its new employees decently, but unfortunately it comes at the cost of poor employee moral and relations between the older and newer employees.

    Cons

    Management is on a track to become a $50m company from a $300M company, rather than trying to maintain a higher level and size. While the market and commoditized product does force cutting costs and improving productivity, the level to which costs are being cut will kill the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Board of Directors needs to decide what level of business it wants to be and communicate that honestly to the employees. I would also recommend replacing Eric Kelly, as well as the CTO, and VP of Sales and Marketing all of which have shown by their results that they are not a fit for Overland Storage. Also the predominant focus on the low margin, highly priced snapserver product line has greatly damaged the tape library business which has better margins and solid market niche.
