    I have been working at CommVault full-time (less than an year)


    Lot's to learn about the company and products, never a dull moment.

    I have learnt something new every day since I started (Over 6 months ago). There's a constant flow of work which makes the days fly by, in fact there's not enough hours in the day to fit everything in which leaves me looking forward to the next rather than dreading it!

    On boarding training when first joining the company is good, and further training programmes are always on going.

    Lots of avenues for progression.

    Location couldn't be better - you can walk to Reading train station within 2 minutes.

    There's a strong social atmosphere inside and outside of work which you can take or leave, as it's not everyones cup of tea (mixing with colleagues both inside and outside the work place).


    Sometimes workload can get the better of you, but unless you ask for help it won't magically appear - this is just common sense really - your supervisor/manager is there to help, and are always willing to.

    Occasionally you may go to lunch late or leave a little late if you get stuck on a support call with a customer, however as it's round the globe 24/7 support you can always hand the case over to the next engineers on shift.

    Benefits package is reasonable - nothing amazing but good compared to other companies!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems support is mostly measured on statistics (calls closed amount) which although is good to give employees targets to work towards, risks the quality of work and can cause stress if someone is seen to not be meeting these targets but they could be giving the best support in the world, just not closing as many calls as they are supposed to.
