No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great work environment. Friendly, professional people. Great work/life balance.

Cons

Benefits sagged over the last few years. Upper management cares more about the bottom line than their employees. Offshoring is more than just a trend with them - it's a mainstay. Beware.

Advice to Management

Offshoring isn't always the best solution.

    Great people, but slow moving in tough times

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work culture is laid back and easy going. It's easy to find "genuine good people" here that are very successful Most people maintain a decent work / life balance. Managers are intelligent and lobby hard for their employees.

    Cons

    Company morale is at a low with constant talks of the next layoff. Internal processes are tedious and time consuming. The company has different silos with each interested in protecting only their best interest and not what's best for the company. Little communication on performance and how employees are faring.

    Advice to Management

    With the economy down turn, Senior Management does not seem to have a new direction set in place on how to ride through the tough times except to do business as usual. There are no new strategies to alleviate customer budget cuts and low sales. Fix the broken products.

    Pros

    NetIQ had very good middle managers. People care you and how you are doing. In the begining NetIQ had a very flexable development staff and a sound plan on what they wanted to accomplish. Some of those people still work there and if you can work for them you will love the job. The benifits were very good both Health and vacation seemed to be above the standard. The tech support group is very strong and willing to go out of the way to help customers and internal people as well. The HR staff is very helpful and also concerned about how you feel.

    Cons

    The downside to NetIQ would be the fact that in recent years the company has been trying to find an area that they think the customer needs help with instead of asking the customer. They have become more interested in what the company managers think the customers need rather than looking at what the customer needs. NetIQ has also lost sight of the core products that made the company as well as the quality. if there is a problem with a product the response is one of marketing not one of trying to fix it. We will spend money working with Gartner to get a good review instead of trying to fix the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Chris Pick and go back to the strong core applications that made us a strong company. PM does not get punished for missing deadlines on products and realeases
