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 Management

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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Freedom to test new ideas Bright and collaborative people Rapid learning curves Access to aggressive sales force

    Cons

    Constantly changing sales focus stifles most long term initiatives Patchy innovation opportunities if your product is not in focus Have to know when to push and when to keep your head down If you want to move up you will have to burn the candle at both ends

    Advice to Management

    Have a strategy for putting products on front and back burners and explicitly work those priorities into all the respective teams so that expectations are set right.
