Novell has great products but needs to execute better

Application Engineer (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Novell

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

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
