I worked at Novell

Pros

Very innovative products. Company is constantly on the cutting edge with its offerings.

Cons

Company lacks direction and seems layoffs/RIFs happen at least 2-3 times a year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leverage the existing technology as it's vastly superior to what else is out there. Stop constantly "right-sizing" the company

    Flexible working hours, reasonable benefits, good compensation.

    Too much focus on cost accounting, not enough on productivity vs. cost.

    Stop outsourcing, it's not cost effective.
