Pros

Profitable company that focuses on developing solid relationships with customers as opposed to just selling them software and moving on.

Cons

There seems to be some uncertainty as to how to move the company to the next step of being in the upper echeclon of successful software companies

Advice to Management

don't be afraid to attack the large competitors but pick your battles carefully and adequately resource the big bets to ensure success.

    Pros

    This company has a lot of different software applications. Offices around the globe which may present traveling and career steps.

    Cons

    Quest has been buying smaller software companies like crazy. After being acquired by this software giant. Fifty percent of the employee base was let go. With in the next year, two more realignments (lay offs) occurred. Key people let go due to their product being discontinued. Truly not knowing about the people who know what they are doing versus the numbers on the piece of paper. The moral of this company is low, buying up all the competitors has taken away any real competitive energy in the office. They seem to be more about buying company's then designing software.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing so much on who to buy and more on the people who make the products. Try recognizing other departments besides sales. Share holders are important but your employees should be just as equal if not more.

    Pros

    Senior management that has demonstrated their personal interest in the company when they could easily cash out and retire ot go elsewhere. The company maintains that small company culture from senior management down.

    Cons

    like any company, there are some individuals who are harder to work with than others, but thankfully at Quest this is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and vision as to what we are as a company and where we will be in 5 - 10 years!
