Pros

1. You will learn a lot and collaborate with team members to resolve difficult "fun" cases.
2. Relaxed dress code and free fruit in the kitchen.
3. Nice and knowledgeable co-workers.
4. Close to freeways.

Cons

1. Not good pay or benefits.
2. Very small pay increases, if any, even to top performers.
3. Always putting out fires and severly under-staffed.
4. Low morale.
6. Furloughs for employees but senior management keeps spending cash on aquisitions and gaudy events for sales force.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Current employees hold more value than the aquisitions you're drooling about so give them a proper yearly increase. If you can't factor in inflation, call volume, difficulty of cases, etc., find someone who can. There are a lot of hard workers at Quest Software and they deserve to be compensated too not just your sales force. One final thought, there is no upward mobility there so start at the bottom and see where you can go - best case scenario you'll end up jumping into another group, that's not upward mobility.

    Pros

    The people makes a company, and at Quest there are some very smart people that are not only good at what they do, but compassionate, fun, and just overall good people. And this isn't just the grunts, there are some really good people in management as well

    Cons

    The company is made of a hodge podge of acquired companies, trying to integrate all the different acquisitions is impossibly difficult, especially with each acquisition comes management changes and the cultures of each acquired company is different. In the end there's more diverging directions due to each business unit having their own agendas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't say there's anything wrong with management even though I don't work there anymore. Any problem Quest faces has far more to do with integration of the business units. The sooner the leaders of each unit realize that there's more to gain for collaboration the better off the company will be.
