    Lack of Direction

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Aliso Viejo, CA

    ProsCompetitive salary and benefits. Lots of potential with smart people if they can get direction. individual groups are good to work with, but cross pollination doesn't happen

    ConsLack of leadership and silo's keep employees from collaborating. Lack of vision and new technology will keep Q in the fading storage industry without many options

    Advice to Senior ManagementHopefully the new CEO will be empowered to make changes and grow the company. Not very confident about that though.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nepotism rules at Q!

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsThe hba product almost sells itself and nice HQ

    ConsNeed sales people leading the sales teams- not marketing people. Upper management is very complacent. Judged not on performance but by who you may or may not be related to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRevenue will continue to drop unless there is a shakeup in management and they invest in engineering resources

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible place to work. Worst management team ever.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe line workers are nice enough. Kind of like everyone being in the same life boat. Everyone is just trying to figure out how to survive and get off the boat.

    ConsThe 20 word minimum on glassdoor is not enough space to adequately describe how bad it is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHa! You guys are so clueless. You would never take anyone else's advice.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    nice products, strong people but small company acting like a big entity for no reason

    Systems Engineer (Former Employee)

    Prosstrong engineering, good people, small enough that you know who to get in touch with to get something done.

    Conslack of future insights, never attainable sales quotas, managed fulfillment in companies favor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet your people succeed thats why you hired them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No Investment in Employee Moral

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat teams, good management, competitive benefits and salary, flexible work schedules, empowerment by middle management. Great work verity. Surrounded by the exceptionally smart people who were driven and motivated.

    ConsQuick to let people go. Atmosphere of constant "am I going to have my job tomorrow". Management lacked the ability to boost moral. It was painful at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so quick to let people go and embrace the enormous talent at your disposal. Get an operations centric CEO with a focus on customers in boost moral. Stop being so focused on asset liability and more focused on customer experience enhancement to boost sales, innovation, marketing and growth.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
