    I have been working at NetIQ as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Allows self directed work flow, while still keeping experienced personal close enough to allow any questions. Supports self learning.

    Cons

    Senior management is in Provo and is distant and uncertain.

    I worked at NetIQ full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, no overtime. Engineering uses Agile methodologies and tools, great teams. Talented Product Management team.

    Cons

    Most of the engineering jobs have moved offshore, no salary raises over the past several years, a lot of people left the company and their positions were not back filled. No promotions or opportunities for growth. A lot of cost saving measures. Some of the tools are being replaced with cheap or free analogues, like using GroupWise instead of Exchange.The bonus program is tied to the company's profit plan, which shifts a lot of the risk to the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the key players from leaving. Invest and grow your business instead of cutting expenses.

    Pros

    Interesting market that allows you to work with huge enterprise customers. Good benefits and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Management does not invest where necessary. Instead they just want to squeeze every penny they can from their existing product lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovate our fade into nothingness...

    I have been working at NetIQ

    Pros

    Work-life balance. Culture of get-it-done, but do it intelligently. Hands off but high visibility throughout the product line that I work on. Lots of room to explore new technology and improve current tech and make the products better.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons and am just trying to hit the 20 word minimum here because it is a requirement for my post.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keepin' on.

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

    Pros

    Interesting 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Nothing at that time.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Change 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.

    Pros

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

    Not the coolest company in town, no really great benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more of the little things to attract talent. Holidays, training, etc.

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

    I have been working at NetIQ

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Some 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
