I have been working at Quest Software full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Casual work environment
free coffee, tea and fruit

Cons

They do not promote within. Applying for jobs via the internal Quest website is of zero use since the recruiters are only incentivized to hire "non quest" employees (and yes apparently that includes contract workers). So the recruiters simply throw your application away if your applying via the internal site. It's very frustrating and took me six months to figure this out after applying for a job several times before going directly to the hiring managers of which they had no clue about my interest or ever seen my resume.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Why not promote within?

    Pros

    Good place to learn virtualization technology, pretty laid back support group. Reimbursement for approved certification like VCP, and MCSE.

    Cons

    Have been working here for three years, recieved 3% raised, which was pretty much nullified by furlough for two of the three years working here. So far Q1 2012, I've seen layoffs in my department, and no furloughs yet. Also, my department is very numbers driven, and heavy on customer satisfaction. The support role is more of a customer service role, than a technical/engineering role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more visible and do a better job of communicating changes to the team.
