Crushing Debt, Main Market in Decline, but Delightful Deduping Disk Devices

Pros

Compensation OK. Good Colleagues. Boulder facility is nice. Some of my managers were laid back and provided resources to complete our projects. ADIC culture's higher regard for quality improved Quantum after the merger.

If you are working on the disk-based archiving devices in California, you're golden.

Cons

Still thinks it is a big company, although it has significantly reduced in size in the last few years; thus, still some surprising bureaucracy in places. There is constant pressure to cut costs in order to deal with our out-of-favor markets involving tape storage. Quantum + ADIC merger of three years ago has turned Quantum into essentially just ADIC, but with 1/2 Billion dollars of debt.

If you are working on tape drives or libraries at Quantum, better hope that they are still giving out severance packages when they let you go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good Luck.

    Pros

    Competent co-workers and management who are really nice people to boot, relaxed corporate culture and dress code, reasonable work-life balance.

    Cons

    Management could be better on giving feedback on job performance. More one on one review sessions should be implemented at all levels. IT department service could be improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve feedback on performance so employees have a chance to correct performance. Increase IT spending if possible.

    I have been working at Quantum Corporation

    Pros

    The location is ideal, very talented and fun co-workers, the compensation and benefits are comparable if a little on the low side to similar companies.

    Cons

    Communication within the company is not executed well, the products are struggling, quality control issues preventing sales from closing. There are too many mid-level managers and "processes" just get in the way of getting things done. Too much time is focused on things that are not important. The company needs to spend more time working on making sure their products work correctly and promoting product to end users.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people better, make this a better place to work with more of a work/life balance.
