    Pros

    * has outstanding software technology in many IT areas
    * has eDirectory and Identity Management solution that is above the rest in the marketplace
    * The SLES OS, Novell Cluster Services on Linux and Business Continuity Clustering on Linux software is top notch

    Cons

    But with all this great software technology needs to be a great marketing to IT professionals and IT management. Novell has a very hard time getting the word out what they have to offer in the IT space. This is the soar spot I have seen, since working at Novell. I have been with this company for over 10 years. If we could only get the message out there what we have and how better it is to the competition, we could be a better known company in the IT space.

    Pros

    The projects being done in Novell India were very interesting ones; they involved core development, and had non trivial design challenges.

    Cons

    Opportunities to visit the US are limited; compensation is not the best, and management is not as technical as one would like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have any advice for current management since I'm not familiar with them. I had left the company before they took over.
