These are the two main characteristics that you want to embrace and understand so you can build better products that really provide value to the users. Qualys managers believe in the talent of each individual and offer a unique opportunity to a job description shaped to your skills and area of expertise (current and potential).

Cons

Be ready to be challenged and to work hard to make the difference. The fussball table need a real update.

    Pros

    product really is the leader in the Vulnerability Management space, work environment is what you actively try and make of it... there are really good people there, if they end of staying... company usually does have a nice holiday party - also when it comes to company represented industry events like RSA, they spend loads of cash to get the name out there

    Cons

    honestly... the single worst deal with this company, which effects MANY parts of this organization is the CEO... Philippe is a very smart, visionary, but his management skills are lacking, the same way a dog is actually lacking a pair of arms... being in a sales role, he consistently berates sales people and always makes a point to say how worthless they are by always sitting there asking what the company can do for them, instead of what they can do for the company... REALITY CHECK PFC - these people drive business and as long as you continue that mentality your company will continue to grow with an average of 15% like it has been lately... its in the numbers.. Secondly, the expansion of their product suites has just NOT delivered which is proof in their latest S-1 that 80% of their business strictly comes from their VM product, which again, still rock the house and is a phenom product

    Advice to Management

    Good luck in dealing with PFC... he may hire you one day and fire you the next... i can't even count on all my fingers and toes the number of times we brought in a solid new hire resource with great industry experience at an executive level, and a couple days/weeks later, they were fired for some undisclosed reason... again, you guys have a great product and you usually hire great people... something i learned at a GREAT company before... they had a list of company tenants, and one of them was "Hire the best and trust them" - in other words, place your confidence in them to do their job... good luck on your upcoming IPO and hopefully PFC leaves and a REAL captain takes over the ship... sorry PFC, you are THE reason many people leave... willingly, not the ones you oust like a smelly pile of garbage in the kitchen
