Verkada Faces Sexism, Discrimination, And Cultural Challenges

By Charles Rollet, Published on Oct 13, 2020

Photos of female employees taken from Verkada's own video surveillance system were passed around by Verkada sales managers captioned with graphic sexual comments, causing strife within the Silicon Valley unicorn.

Verkada, which has received $100+ million in funding over the past two years, was built on a recipe of hiring "great sales athletes", "copying" the old EMC model of hiring "half the football team" and making "the culture really fun for sales", according to Verkada Chairman Hans Robertson. Indeed, Robertson boasted of hiring "a lot of" Verkada's "sales athletes" from one small and wealthy Bay Area suburb.

However, this has created a working environment that many allege is reminiscent of a frat house, rife with sexism, drinking, and discrimination. Current and former Verkada employees say these issues all came to a head with the Slack incident, which exposed Verkada's favoritism towards this elite "crew" of sales staffers.

In this post, IPVM examines Verkada's workplace challenges in-depth:

  • The Slack Incident
  • Fallout from the Slack Incident
  • The 'Danville Crew'
  • "They Can Do Whatever They Want"
  • Sales Playbook of Hans Robertson, Verkada Chairman
  • Other Director Terminated
  • Sales Party During Coronavirus
  • Discrimination Concerns from Employees
  • Sales vs Culture Challenge
  • Verkada Responds to IPVM
  • Verkada Email to Employees about IPVM's report
