What our users are saying about working for Pivotal Software, Inc


Definitely a great place to work if you can find a way to make the hours work for you. Telecommuting is basically out for most positions, and the flexible vacation policy definitely has limits that are lower than you might expect.

The company doesn't do cost of living adjustments, they base pay off of what "similar companies" pay in the area.

I really like working here, and enjoy each of my co-workers.

Satisfied Rater

I don't know how it is in our others offices around the world, but here in London I feel respected and valued by my team. I have not had any bad situations with any of my team, but know that if I ever did I have many many people to whom I could do to for immediate help and support. My manager, director and team-mates are all people I respect and for whom am very grateful (although of course I, and all minorities in tech, should be able to take being treated well at work for granted, given its rarity I'm gonna shout out my gratitude!). When attitudes of inclusion, diversity and respect come from the Top they tend to get traction; while there are still (many) kinks to be worked out in most offices, I feel that support and respect for cis-women and LGBQ people (I cannot speak for POCs, transmen or transwomen), is of genuine concern for the company.

Satisfied Rater
Early Career

The percentage of women & minorities in the Denver office is very low (~10%), so despite slightly more favorable company-wide numbers this office still feels like your typical tech dudetown. There is good conversation and support for D&I initiatives even if the hiring follow-through has not happened yet.

Indifferent Rater
Early Career

The Palo Alto office doesn't have a lot of women around, but the company is trying to fix that and I have seen them make active efforts to hire more women in all types of roles. Generally I feel like I am supported and respected here.

Satisfied Rater
Early Career

Any woman who works in technology knows what it's like to have male colleagues who condescend to her, ignore her, or worse. At Pivotal, you get to PAIR PROGRAM with those colleagues. ALL DAY.

Together We Can Build Something Meaningful

Pivotal is where some of the world's best technologists are bringing the transformative power of software to enterprises and industries across the globe. Our 2,000+ employees across 19 offices worldwide subscribe to an ethos of kindness. We make a point to bring empathy to each and every project, and are guided by a purposeful mission—to transform how the world builds software. Building a diverse and inclusive workforce reflects our values (Do The Right Thing, Do What Works, Be Kind) and fosters a collaborative work environment where everyone can succeed.

Do The Right Thing: It’s not about us. It’s about user experiences. We don’t make decisions based on titles or chains of command. We work together, test, and do the right thing.

Do What Works: Our approach to software development is refreshing because we apply a methodology of continuous improvement—testing, iterating, making the call, shipping, and moving on to what’s next.

Be Kind: We write software for humans. We walk in customers’ shoes. We build things, fix things, and collaborate. We value empathy and respect others.
