    I worked at Attachmate full-time (more than 5 years)


    Flexible on working from home vs. work, great people to work with.


    Attachmate is now MicroFocus due to a recent merger/acquisition. They recently had a lay off as they restructure and move forward. While I remain optimistic, time will tell how they do.
