I have been working at Quantum Corporation

Pros

Lot's of install accounts, great technology, market leader for tape, good pay, fairly laid back culture

Cons

few resources, inefficient and immature channel, poor branding and marketing, large territory, but hard to find opportunities due to immature channel, no inside sales resources, poor communication inter-company. Don't do a good job attacking the competition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seriously work on building the channel, do a better job marketing Quantum. Look for companies that would be interested in marketing Quantum. Build the EMC relationship and the Dell relationship.

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

    I have been working at Quantum Corporation

    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.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation

    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.
