Current Employee - Software Engineer in Lindon, UT

I have been working at Quest Software full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Casual dress, relaxed atmosphere, somewhat flexible work arrangements. Industry-standard benefits (health, dental, vision). Reasonable degree of freedom in engineering. Projects are resourced sufficiently. Bonuses are available in some positions.

Cons

Not much culture, despite occasional attempts to boost employee involvement. Sales-focused to a fault, with lacking investment in R&D. Small teams result in good cohesion but limit innovation. No bonuses for most R&D positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider the importance of engineering to the company and whether it has sufficient investment.

    Pros

    work from home 2 days a week

    Cons

    No ethical values towards employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Direct managers are ok. Senior Management should not make heist decisions based on strictly $ and #'s.

    I have been working at Quest Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great flex hours, let you work remote from home. Have fruit as a perk and a kourig coffee machine.

    Cons

    Some managers are inept and even abusive but because upper management is so disconnected, the status quo continues. This company could easily be a $3billion firm but there is a lack of leadership at the top and competing priorities that pit departments against each other for resources. This internal competition hurts the entire company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper leadership needs to be more involved. i never saw the CEO, VP's, etc. come and talk to any of the staff - they only interacted with a handful of people and ignored the rest.
