    Has great potential if the executives would just let people do their job

    I worked at LANDESK full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    the people (there are a lot of intelligent and fun people working here) benefits are average, salaries are above average for the Salt Lake City region, HR is really busting their butt to make this an enjoyable place to work (Lagoon Family Day, Halloween Parties, Company movies, product launch activities, etc). They have been remodeling a few of the floors in the Salt Lake office, but some other areas are quite lousy. The UK Office recently moved into a nice facility, but was much further for most of the employees (did not make too many people happy in that office).

    Cons

    - Constant Change in the Roadmap
    - Executives have their fingers in too much
    - Too many products, the executives won't kill anything "we can't kill that because of this customer"
    - Too reactive and sales focused, rather than being market focused
    - The executives are focused on one thing EBITDA, which is fine but eventually it will kill the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stop being so reactive
    - Let your directors and managers make decisions, you might be surprised, they might actually make you look good
    - Stop micro managing your teams, and let them excel, you are paying them nice salaries why don't you let them show you how great they are
    - Implement a long-term strategy and stick with it, don't just acquire companies simply because our features in that specific area are weaker than "some" of your competitors
    - Be GREAT at something, today, LANDesk is average at best and customers know it
    - Stop worrying about Microsoft and focus on making your company better, by trying to be like Microsoft you will never win
    - The majority of employees are not happy at LANDesk, you surveyed them and the results clearly indicated this, stop trying to candy coat everything and fix the problems (stop worrying about the millions you will make if you sell company, most of these people will still be here when your gone living off your next egg)

    Current Employee - Technical Support Engineer in South Jordan, UT

    I have been working at LANDESK full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This organization takes it's time evaluating potential employees to find the best fit. It shows in the quality of the tech support and development of the product.

    Cons

    The application to interview to job offer process can be a long process even though it helps get the best employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to show appreciation for hard work. So far that's already working so keep it up. This company is a secure model of great employment and longevity as it strives to acknowledge progress and good work.
