Pros

Novell has a really good atmosphere and does have some of the best benefits that are available. They are also open about time off and coming in to work at a decent time.

Cons

Novell does not have a very good way of promoting their products, thus customers move on to competitors all the time. The company it's self is constantly shrinking its head count, making everyone nervous that their job is next to get cut.

Advice to Management

I enjoy the atmosphere but I would like to know that I have a future in the company. I would also ask management to not micromanage the employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits Excellent facilities, offices rather than cubicles Lots of vacation time Flexible for telecommuting Very strong technology portfolio, just week on execution.

    Cons

    Uncertain future, the strategy changes so often that the average employee doesn't keep up with it. Lots of off-shoring. This makes work schedules erratic, but good if you want work in China or India.

    Advice to Management

    ask yourselves the question, "When we've off-shored the majority of R&D to reduce costs, how do we innovate to create sustainable growth?"
