Novell, a founding IT co. with perception issues of whether they are relative to the market & a decent place to work!

Account Manager (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

ProsGreat technology, great corporate support on products and programs, great people at corporate who really care about their jobs, technology, and each other.

ConsMarketing of products and services has been historically a challenge for the company, so it is hard to sell the solutions because of market perception of the company. Sales managers and VP come and go each year, so customers and employees get frustrated with each new VP's "program".

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on marketing or solutions and corporate America's perception of the company and bring in McKinsey or Bain or someone that can help create long term strategy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
