I worked at Quest Software full-time for more than a year

Pros

Quest had good people to work with. They were very supportive of personal time (work/life balance was good). Would definitely work with that group of people again.

Cons

Trying to reach into market segments where they had no business being. Their foray into desktop virtualization is a disaster. Same for virtualization management and cloud computing. It's not that they had bad products - simply that management seemed only interested in the maintenance tail and not in enhancing the products to keep them relevant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

SELL! Which they did. I'm hoping that Dell will enable the Quest team to spread their wings and do great things...
