    Colorado Springs: Many good years, but manufacturing is now contracted to other companies.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is a strong focus on engineering and the Agile system really works well to track changes, deviations, BOMs and specs, and when there wasn't enough "bandwidth" to cover all the ECs, the system does a good job of keeping them from falling through the cracks. Engineers are bright and enthusiastic about their jobs, even if sometimes overwhelmed. New Product launches were typically on time, teamwork was effective, and communication between all functions usually worked very well. Lots of meetings! Maybe that's a con to some, but communication was effective. Good compensation and benefits. Nice modern facilities, CO SPGS has a gym/showers/lockers and self serve café, basketball/volleyball courts. I had many good years between several sites, I miss working there.

    Cons

    There have been so many layoffs in manufacturing I can't count. Of course now it's over, there is no manufacturing at Quantum, it has been outsourced to other US companies in AL, AZ, and CA. The remaining functions are scattered in several states, not sure that is sustainable, so I would be wary of the longevity of any facility. There are 3 sites in CO, so I would expect at least one to remain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't speak for the remaining functions. I supported production so I can't advise on something that no longer exists. Bring production back to PPO, or Englewood? Nice dream, but I think that ship has sailed for good. Thanks, I had a good run.

    Former Employee - Service in Denver, CO

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated and extremely talented people in the Teams I was privileged to interact with regularly (Engineering, Sustaining, Field Service, Service Management). Valuable Educational Services/Training. Strong, reliable and feature rich products in the mature product families. Great customers.

    Cons

    IMO... Aggressive product launches of complex, new release, feature rich products into broader (less understood) customer environments caused some early negative customer experiences. The resulting perception challenges made it difficult for talented Sales Teams to overcome facing (sometimes exaggerated) competitor FUD.

    Loss of a job due to layoffs... I really miss working with a lot of good folks.

    Pros

    The people that are left are dedicated to helping make the company succeed and we wear multiple hats. Overwhelmingly, anybody you talk to is willing to help out with any questions, and it definitely feels like a supportive team environment across the company.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity to advance and job uncertainty are two of the negatives. I feel that there are some people that clearly stand out and at a different company would have moved up the corporate ladder but at Quantum we are flat and those opportunities just don't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There seems to be a disconnect between the upper and lower workers. A lot of high level positions never seem to get affected by layoffs while the workers are constantly losing their jobs, or the CEO gets a significant pay raise while the company spirals down. Really?
