Good

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Lindon, UT

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

ProsCasual 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.

ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementConsider the importance of engineering to the company and whether it has sufficient investment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Temp working at Quest

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Aliso Viejo, CA

I have been working at Quest Software full-time for less than a 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… Advice to Senior Management: Why not promote within? No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
