    Lots of talent. Clueless Upper Management. Advocates for bureaucracy and inefficiencies

    Drone (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsAmazing talent in the lower ranks, all with a stubborn dedication to making the company work.. Top-of- the-line innovative products with huge market potential. Good work-life balance. Decent benefits.

    ConsUpper and middle management is an inept self-promoting good-ol' boy network. Zero talent recognition. No hope for advancement. Pay below average, raises frowned upon.
    Laughable (if any) product training. Refusal to adopt best practices. High level of unnecessary bureaucracy using outdated, expensive, CRM. Company is run on shareware or freeware.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company could do very well. The products and the people supporting them are fantastic. Your people are dedicated and enthusiastic, but many are reduced to only show up for work to get a paycheck. Think "Career Path".
    Reduce bureaucracy, get rid of Oracle in exchange for a "real" CRM. Stop the bean-counter mentality and invest in the company. Provide adequate tools and adopt a Best Practices program for product implementation. Get a competent CEO and remove a top layer of upper management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Quantum is trying to starve itself back to health

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsQuantum is focused on work life balance.
    Quantum has proactive programs focused on employee health (or they did).

    ConsOverall, the employee population is underpaid as compared to the local market.
    Truly awful place to work, as all the focus is on short term goals and no process or product improvements. I guess it is an ok place to work if you don't care...

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to diet yourself healthy. If you want to turn the company around, you are going to have to invest in the future.

    Phone tech

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNice atmosphere and plenty of room to move.

    ConsNot recognized for performance and quality. Pay is all based on stats.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the employee for all the intangibles they bring to the table which is NOT measured via stats i.e. spending extra time with the customer to troubleshoot and resolve with one call as opposed to getting off the phone for the stat. After all, that saves the company $ and provides customer sat. There is no incentive for the tech to operate with this philosophy. If the customer calls back five times, then the tech stats look good and they get a raise while the good tech that spends time with the customer gets nothing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMet some great talented people and they have some killer technology

    ConsUpper management is all about the good old boys network. They need to look in the mirror and ask why this is not working.

    Not the best, not the worst.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood employees to work with
    Decent Starting Salary and Benefits
    Nice Severance and Continuation pay package after the layoff! (If getting laid off is a good thing..)

    ConsMonotonous, boring work.
    Middle management is incompetent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBesides figuring out how to sustain the company without your main core competency being lay-offs.. Engage your high potential employees for growth opportunities.

    Unstable, lots of management changes and uncertainty

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent benefits package and starting salary

    ConsVery few chances for advancement or pay increases, frequent layoffs and uncertainty about future of the company. Poor sales management and employee on boarding process is pretty much non-existent. Top down management style.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSolicit and take interest in what's going on with customer facing employees and it will help you improve the environment and retain employees who care about the future of the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not long to live

    Procees Engineer I (Current Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsLower to mid management cared about their employees. Good culture and benefits. Positive place to be until upper management and CEO decided to outsource manufacturing jobs from the Colorado Springs plant to a third party company.

    ConsOverall employees were under paid compared to local and national equivalent positions. Upper management and CEO do not seem to have a clue on how to run a large corporation. Many decisions from the past few years seem to have ruined the company and stock value.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
