Nutanix’s Dheeraj Pandey: ‘A Furlough Is Reversible, A Layoff Is Not’

‘Coming out of the COVID-19 crisis, we think we’ll be perfectly placed to be one of the largest, and honest, hybrid cloud subscription software companies in the world,’ says Nutanix CEO Dheeraj Pandey.

Do you expect these furloughs to impact Nutanix in either the short-term or long-term?  

The company as a whole is an epitome of what [scholar and former trader and risk analyst] Nicholas Taleb calls, ‘Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder.’ In preparation for cloud, we’ve embarked on two business model transitions in the last three years, and our people have evinced an amazing appetite for what I call ‘long-term greed.’ Coming out of the COVID-19 crisis, we think we’ll be perfectly placed to be one of the largest, and honest, hybrid cloud subscription software companies in the world. 

How are you handling the new work-at-home environment?  

Time-offs are an ideal time to pause, make your mind wander, give it solitude to think, and bring back new ideas to life and the workplace. It’s unfortunate that we are having to do this, but we have to make the most of it now, between kids at home, parents, partners, significant others... and reading. I am writing during this week, as much as I am reading. I have carefully selected my work-from-home toolkit, between the high-rise table to monitors to zero-gravity recliner to a beautiful yet inexpensive handcrafted barstool from Etsy. I’ve also become a power user of MindNode, a mind map tool, Apple Pages, Shutterstock -- I hope my fellow Adobe board members aren’t reading this -- Things, Zoom, and of course my favorites, Pocket and Slack. Having said that, I do miss my office wall (photo above).
