I have been working at Novell

Pros

I love working with the people at Novell, particularly members of my own team. The new leadership gets that focusing on existing customers can be a great business and can also bridge the gap from old products to new.

Cons

As with all companies, there's more to do than can be done and lots of inefficiencies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it simple. Invest in the future.

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are competitive for the local IT industry. Novell has a great culture and facilities (on-site fitness center, cafeteria, credit union, etc.) in Provo and offers a flexible work environment. The best part of working at Novell are the awesome people you get to work with every day and the many challenges and opportunities to help solve.

    Cons

    Novell was recently acquired by the Attachmate Group and this has naturally caused a sense of uncertainty among the ranks. The leadership and business culture brought into the fold by heritage Attachmate and NetIQ is less polished even though their focus on the customer and driving revenue is sound. Many, including myself, wonder if they are poised to grow the business or merely desire to "milk the cash cow" (existing customer base and maintenance revenue stream).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a great employee, partner and customer base at Novell. In order to keep the business in balance, you need to give adequate time, attention and priority to each.

    Good starting job, but the department doesn't have a real career path.
