    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Quest Software full-time (More than 8 years)


    Excellent set of software products and management was good at letting employees know why there might be a layoff. A very smart and dedicated group of people that moved on to Dell when Dell acquired Quest.


    A mid-size company, approximately 5,000 employees, tends to have a more formal set of rules and regulations and lots of meetings. That sometimes slowed down quick decision making. People tended to work a lot of hours, that limited a good work/life balance.Overall, a good company.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of time was spent in meetings. It would be easier to meet our job assignments if there were less meetings.

    Campaign Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aliso Viejo, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Quest Software (Aliso Viejo, CA) in March 2011.


    I received a call within 24 hours of submitting online. The recruiter was pleasant and managed the interview scheduling. The hiring manager and 2 others gave 1:1 interview, 2 in person and 1 phone interview. The people I interviewed with were very pleasant, they asked unique questions. One manager even took notes which made me feel heard and interested. I'm still going through the interview process and regardless if I land the job or not, I have respect for Quest and the culture they obviously work hard to preserve. Great job Quest!!
