Fusion-io Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Fusion-io, Inc. was a computer hardware and software systems company, acquired by SanDisk Corporation in 2014, based in Cottonwood Heights, Utah, that designed and manufactured products using flash memory technology. The Fusion ioMemory was marketed for applications such as databases, virtualization, cloud computing, big data. Their ioDrive product was considered around 2011 to be one of the fastest storage devices on the market.
Back on September 2014 a former employee wrote a review for Glassdoor about how working at Fision-io is not worth it : Poor leadership after founders ousted. Attention towards the customer was never what it should have been.
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Their executive team. Weak, incompetent, political. Incapable of making decisions and suffering from Dunning–Kruger effect. Questionable promotions, favoritism and other questionable tactics made this company a shadow of what it could have been. It was a disaster."
Former Employee - Sales says"Very poorly managed, the company is doing what it can to become an attractive take-over target."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Management. Talk about finding the WORST and LEAST QUALIFIED to lead us!!! At one point our VP hired 1 VP/Director for every 1.5 employees, TOP HEAVY. Only to have his management force the VP to let these people go so we can fill areas that are needed in our organization. We all voiced our opinions on how the company was top heavy, this was all to no avail. It wasn't until the stock price dipped below $20 that "changes were needed." Lo-and-behold, these Top Heavy people were finally let go and the lowest ranks, where PEOPLE WERE NEEDED, were finally filled and the overall workload each employee did slightly decreased. Wasting MILLIONS of dollars on a new Salesforce Platform that performs worse than our previous ticketing system was fun. Me and my colleagues love to point out every Shortcoming this system has. OH IT GETS BETTER. We were over budget by a few Million Dollars to implement this "incomplete" system.The solution: Fire the company that was working to fix all these so called "Incomplete" issues we were experiencing, and DO NOTHING. Seriously, we implement Salesforce with a bottomless pit of problems, only to fire the only people who could fix it, bring the project "in-house", and FIRE THAT PERSON TOO!!! I have an AMAZING List of WHAT NOT TO DO when running a company."
Former Employee - Anonymous says"New management. No direction. No leadership. Huge lack of communication from the top down."
Former Employee - Sales says"Then it all changed with the new CEO...who eventually brought in the new sales regime. New sales leaders in the major territories who both came from the same previous vendor changed the sales culture beyond recognition to match what they used to do and a vast exodus in sales and marketing began. So many people couldn't take all the micro management they had no choice but to leave. Other flash players are breaking ground with their own technologies and the competition is tough."
Director says"Weird Utah based Culture. Executive management team is new and clueless"
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer says"(i) There are some people in the core driver team who think they are too good for the world and management sucks up to them relentlessly. (ii) As the company is getting bigger, it is getting top heavy and not sure if the top brass needs to be that heavy. (iii) Hikes and bonuses are almost non-existent"
Current Employee - Marketing says"After some management changes involving the co-founders, the spirit and enthusiasm of the employees was affected greatly. Now that we are public, the perception Wallstreet has of our company does not match reality. We have a stronger company behind the scenes but our stock is 25% of what it was a year ago."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Negotiated for a reasonable raise with my boss after two years of working there, and his boss wouldn't follow through with what was negotiated. Constant sexist remarks and half my time was spent under a sexist boss who wouldn't promote me (even after I signed on with him telling me he would once I finished school). I found out I made half what my coworkers doing similar work made, and less than what interns made with less education than I. It can also be very difficult working closely with people in the Colorado and San Jose offices: It contributes to poor communication and a lot of unnecessary tension. Overall, the more I go to this job every day, the more I hate this job every day. For a company that has grown to this size, it's still experiencing the growing pains of companies a third its size."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"morale, inability to grow within the company, not sure we're headed in the right direction"
IT Specialist (Former Employee) says"Backup accounting and other backup systems with Commvault"
International Accounting Manager / Payroll Manager (Current Employee) says"Working for Fusion-io Inc. was refreshing. I worked with innovative and forward thinking people. Management was open minded and flexible. The work was challenging and goals obtainable.Fusion-io Inc. Had an in house cafe with great selections"
