Good idea to join Nutanix now?

Microsoft VtIC07
Jun 1 53 Comments

I have an offer from Nutanix. I might be able to negotiate more RSU's given the recent stock decline. It looks like a good time to join. I have heard the work is good too.

Do you think it is a good idea to join and the company has a future?

      Once at my job all the managers were asked to post positive Glassdoor reviews. You can weed through the crap ....

      Stripper love is legit... tightly coupled to how much you spend.

    LOL seriously? The company is dead and unrecoverable at this point. I have multiple friends there who are super unhappy and looking for exits. It's a total disaster there. Also go look at their jobs page for open positions, major key positions empty from all the people leaving and more on their way out.

    Out of curiosity what team did you get an offer from and what's the offer details?

      Unlikely. Nutanix has burned bridges and made enemies throughout the entire industry. There is a total void of qualified leadership from the top, a massive lack of sales, a crazy long difficult sales cycle with sky high discounts when there is sales and a ceo with a major ego problem. Oh not to mention all the attrition issues of everyone jumping ship.

      @tomoon where is the reward? Even at such low stock price , our rsu grants are paltry. Our CEO talks of big upside if company does well, but that's not true when you have so few stocks left to vest

      Agree and that’s why I put my papers today , but someone joining can negotiate I believe.

      There are people who joined in dates between 2014 or before till 2019 is what I meant. They are many who are still joining.

      One more downside with Nutanix comp structure is your comp goes down after 4 years. So if you plan to stay in company for longer it's a pain to repeat the process again. The reason for this being the 4 year grant you get will be the highest and refreshes will be super low and will not substitute for your comp enough after 4 years at company. It's sad , but true!

    Don't believe the people who saw that the company is dead and all. There were some sales execution issues that happened since a quarter and it'd take 2 more quarters to see the results taking effect after the fix of sales execution issues. The current product and upcoming products still are rock-solid and you'd most likely like Nutanix better than MS like many of the folks from MS who joined Nutanix told me.

      Ya, I agree on few points you said. Marketing and sales team makes a huge difference for any company. Even though products are good if you are not making enough sales then how good the product is won’t help much in longer run. Not every analyst who writes article about NTNX knows completely about product. They go based on Sales, Revenue and profit numbers. Stock will still stumble. If Sales and Marketing teams does not recover in coming quarters then there is a high chance NTNX will be sold out. Also, I got to know that NTNX is planning on layoffs in coming quarters to cut costs.Down the lane if they still don’t recover Dheeraj has plans on selling it. I personally worked with those top notch NTNX Sales guys who left NTNX. It’s very hard to find those sales guys who went above and beyond to sell NTNX products. You just lost people who could have made NTNX stable. Also, watch out as culture is already bad. In layoffs mostly hardworking or people who talk back are the ones who will be laid off. All the assholes will still remain at NTNX. Good Luck.

      Hey @VtIC07 join the company and fix the problems. We want results so make it happen!

    If I were you I will stick with current company. Because there are layoffs coming soon. You don’t want to be laid off in a month or so after you accepted the offer. Especially if you are on H1B visa. I would say wait it out. Watch for next couple of quarters if they can pick up. If they are doing well they will hire more people. You still have the chance to join NTNX. Recruiters always keep coming back if you are worth it.

      I see that your each comment is only about Nutanix and you are spreading too much negativity about the company here.

      It’s too stupid being too much optimistic about NTNX when everyone can see where the company is going. I gave honest opinion. If you don’t like it, move on.

    • Nutanix uturn
      @happier You saying ™honest" is too funny. @VtlC07 It has been personal motive is to defame Nutanix. Looks like all he does on Blind is that.

      You're welcome ... Not just our koolaid though. It's a good product, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be paranoid.

      That's what I have heard. The product is good. I most likely will join Nutanix. I am sure the company will come out of this phase

      You will regret later @VtlC07. Unless you don’t have an option. Microsoft is doing so well now. I see where is your positivity coming from 2.5 years experience . You are still young and can take chances but still if you are someone who wants to advance in career quickly. NTNX is not the company for you.

    I think company is in tough spot. Does not mean all is over. Lot of things to feel positive about. But somehow leadership is still grappling with situation. It could work for you. You have to show some patience. I am almost out due to my immediate manager

  • Nutanix bzbzz
    Definitely negotiate more RSUs given the recent drop. I am bullish on nutanix because the product is good, the market is hot, and the leadership and the rest of us are acutely aware of the gap and what needs to be done. Good luck!

      Thanks for the positive vibe. To be frank, I was little scared after reading all negative comments here

    • Palo Alto Networks happier
      They always say they know the gap but never seen NTNX fixing them. Talk to someone who are leaving the company or left the company. You will have a clear idea about pros and cons. You should definitely check on the team you are joining too. If you made a decision already, good luck with your career.

    Aha. So this may be a ticket to the Bay Area for OP. OK, that makes more sense. OP, be careful you don't out yourself accidentally by posting your offer details here. How many offers do you think Nutanix has to MSFT employees outside of the SFBA?
