    I have been working at Novell full-time (more than 10 years)


    The people (employees) here have always been great to work with. Balance between work life and personal life are also great.


    Upper management in over their heads. When the attachmate group acquired Novell, we had a lot of hope that they would finally fix this company. Nearly two years and many empty promises, and obvious lack of knowledge of how to run a large company, most employees that I know are looking for a place to go. I have yet to see this company end of life a product, and as a result, they have more and more products, and less people to work on them. Employees are burned out for the workload they have, with no hope of a sensible product portfolio. Marketing has always been abysmal, with no signs of change in the future. :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your commitments. Make the profit sharing plan you touted so much upon acquiring Novell a reality. This company is still very profitable though in decline, yet you mistakenly hold groups accountable for what they have no control over, and reward the people who *should* be accountable. As long as Bob gets his trip to "club" I guess it'll never change.

    Once budgets are approved. please honor them. It is ridiculous to have a budget approved for hiring or hardware etc. to have to get approval from Jeff Hawn to start going down the path of acquiring the already approved budget item. Once the person or hardware is selected, we then have to have to have Jeff yet again approve it a 3rd time! It seems most often lately that on the third approval of the already twice approved asset, the request is finally denied. I could go on. But I think I'll just, go.
