    Pros

    Strong engineering and field technician support.

    Cons

    Management needs to be changed. They have no idea what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    More VP's need to see medium size accounts and come to the territories more. At corporate they get stuck in a vacuum.

    Pros

    Pay, flexibility, health conscious and office culture were all great in my short time there. It was a great position with a lot of career potential. Unfortunately I was brought on about 6 months before some corporate restructuring and layoffs needed to occur. So myself and about 120 other people were released.

    Cons

    The product and systems training wasn't good. It was all done with recorded, online tutorials that you did by yourself. It was not intuitive at all and seemed pretty antiquated for a technology company.

    Pros

    Good Product line up. Good benefits. Good work-life balance. Talented engineering pool. Some portions of business doing well while others flounder.

    Cons

    For a high-tech company they are stuck in the past as far as using new tools for collaboration and other tasks.
    Constant lay-offs for the past several years even though management keeps saying this is the last one. Leadership team fails to provide adequate direction. very unstable as far as job security.

    Advice to Management

    Start over with new management team across the board. bring in new perspectives. Update tools.

    Pros

    Good team and work environment. Overall I can see some growth for me. But the company pace is very slow. Management has to be aggressive.

    Cons

    Company is not fast paced. I am a software engineer and found that management is not very aggressive. Compensation-wise its below average. Culture is not very relaxed. I would like to see shorts in summer time but people here use only business casuals.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive.

    Pros

    Mostly good people.

    Good benefits.

    Good products.

    Cons

    Certain departments are not given training or sufficient resources, then they're over staffed to compensate for those deficits.

    Silo mentality (not as bad as it was).

    Advice to Management

    I've seen improvements, so I encourage them to keep that trajectory.

    Pros

    Good benefits and life balance. One of a handful of companies that actually embrace telecommuting.

    Cons

    Lack of proper training at most job levels. Not many opportunities for advancement nor is there any loyalty shows to employees. Merit increases are ridiculously low.

    Advice to Management

    Have more faith in your employees. For the most part, they are well educated, dedicated employees. Treat them as such.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Flexible work environment. The quality of personal across the company is good . Excellent team work.

    Cons

    Quantum has not recovered from the recession. Layoffs have been the norm for the last five years. Management cannot jump start sales and cost cutting has become the way to improve the bottom line.

    challenging projects, good first level management, good community of people.

    Many strategic direction changes, struggles to execute on plans.

    Make the employees more of a stake holder in the strategic direction of the company.

    Fellow employees are very nice to work with. Very interested in helping get stuff done and resolve issues.

    Pros

    Good work environment, friendly employees, great benefits

    Cons

    Layoffs lurking at every corner, managers and executives not held accountable for bad decisions, CEO with over-inflated ego. All adds up to poor stock performance.

    Advice to Management

    Give departments reasonable budgets. Too many are operating without the necessities and without the manpower to do the work. When cutting costs, look at areas other than the workforce. Employees find it hard to stay loyal when there is a constant slow bleed due to layoffs. The ones who remain are burdened with duties that are not in their job descriptions and are overloaded in general.
