Good, friendly place to work

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

I have been working at NetIQ full-time for more than a year

ProsInteresting tasks, work on several projects simultaneously.
Flexible schedule, work from home several days a week,
Friendly people around.
Management cares about workers.
Quiet office, a lot of space.
No restrictions about software and OS to use.

ConsThe office is in Cambridge, heavy traffic all day to/ from Boston.
It is not clear about carrier opportunities.
Mostly notebooks, not desktops, so you have to take it with your every day.

Advice to Senior ManagementNothing at that time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great product, great space to be in. Much upside potential!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NetIQ full-time for less than a year

ProsGood pay, no drama, no egos, a great product that is in an refactoring phase with good upside.

ConsNot the coolest company in town, no really great benefits.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more of the little things to attract talent. Holidays, training, etc.

Good company, excellent benefits. Nice people.

Tech Support Engineer (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at NetIQ full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExcellent benefits. Great work/life management. No micro-managing.

ConsNo room for real career growth in technical support. Old world thinking of working from home. Salary in TS is mediocre. Training needs to be improved.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange your attitude on working from home. Lots of employees in TS are unhappy about it especially with the 90 minute+ one way commute times in and around Houston.

Challenging projects, good colleagues, and very finance-focused company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NetIQ

ProsWith the variety of solutions and products that NetIQ offers, there are plenty of opportunities to learn about a variety of markets

ConsSome of the key competitors are the behemoths of the enterprise software industry which presents its challenges and its benefits. NetIQ can be more nimble and show more personal care for its clients, but you compete with companies who have deep pockets

Good - chronically under-resourced but everyone has a critical role to play

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NetIQ full-time for less than a year

Prosyou can see your impact
great products
private company
wide support from multiple business units
you make your job what you want it to be

Consunder-resourced - never enough arms and legs
some acquired technology and people "stuck in the past"

Advice to Senior Managementfocus on human resources and good developmental management programs. a little employee development and performance management would go a long way

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great products, tough market

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at NetIQ full-time

ProsThe people and culture at NetiQ are top notch. The pay for sales people is decent (if you like the risk of a heavy variable). Very little micro management and lots of great people to help you succeed.

ConsThe products are sort of dying on the vine. They need to be updated such that they are the best in the market. Unfortunately, the products at NetIQ are competing in a heavily competitive and saturated market. To give the sales people an edge, improve the products.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue focusing on the people. If attrition is too high, the company will become stagnant and growth will be stalled. Also, choose a solution or two to be the best in the industry (read Jim Collins' "Good to Great", there are a few chapters talking about this phenomena).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
