Featured Review

Former Employee - Hardware Engineer

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

Pros

Exablaze was one of the most prominent startups in the modern data-center networking space. While it mainly focused on the ultra low latency applications, it produced several groundbreaking... innovations which are now commonly used. Engineering team was very compact and there has been tremendous opportunity to learn and grow.

Cons

Suboptimal business decisions and lack of proactive sales force led to many wasted opportunities.

Former Employee - Vice President Sales

I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Massive portfolio, known brand and cloud focus.

Cons

To much corporate overhead to win business and keep customers happy.

Advice to Management

Automate, streamline processes, listen to staff and customers. Incentivize internal collabroration.
