Excellent technology, a bit too much of a niche to have the company scale

Pros

Management seems to have the right mix of finance, engineering, and marketing skills.

Cons

Slow to grow and add newer technology. the company was in a great position to expand into larger data center ILM and data management solutions, but hasn't capitalized on the goodwill they have from their current customers.

    Pros

    Management asks us every year to list all of our desired conferences and professional development activities, such as attending a class to learn a new application.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, most non-management staff were unable to attend a conference or to take a class to improve their knowledge and skills, because the money was not built into the corporate budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carve out some money in each year's budget for professional development of non-management staff.

    Procedures and attitude need to be adjusted towards longevity of the company while still maintaining customer service.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Quantum Corporation is the advancement opportunity is available if you do have the talent. There was not as much educational degree bureaucracy here compared to other places. They still valued education and offered a $5,000 reimbursement for education related to working for Quantum, which would of course help you advance there as well as other places.

    Cons

    Management across the organization seemed to drive behavior which was not necessarily supportive of those who wish to do the job correctly. If you have a good work ethic and want to do things correctly, this cultural behavior makes it hard to see through the game and feel as though you are doing the right thing even when you are doing the right thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to upper management would be to properly enforce Service Level Agreements to customers. Less money would be lost this way. Also, choose vendors who do not rip you off when reworking your refurbished equipment. There are many cases where a product was sent out for replacement, and had the same defect it was supposed to be refurbished for. Keep on the same track with employee relations and strengthen values there, it seems to be on the right track. Give more support to those who are truly doing the job correctly, and start tracking metrics correctly. Correct metrics will automatically drive the correct behavior. Do the research and try to figure out what the data is really telling you.
