    Pros

    A lot of good people work for this company and a lot of the immediate managers supervisors are great. Compensation is fair. Benefits are good. Vacation time!

    Cons

    Stark division between teams, with some serious superiority complex, competition going on. Upper management is very inflexible, and if you're not in the club you don't feel like anything you do really matters. This place can feel very lonely and isolated and sterile environment. The corporation also needs a major reworking... it's bread and butter is Tape LIbrary technology... that can't be a good plan moving forward. It's deesperately wants to reinvent itself but it seems that it's modern techonology is inferior to it's competition. This is an old dinosaur of a company that needs to either evolve, or suffer a prolonged and painful death.

    Advice to Management

    Value the work and opinions of every team equally. Sales is great but nothing to sell if you don't value your support and development.

    Pros

    Compensation was fair.
    Team coherence is good.
    When a valid business case is made for a purchase, there is none of the usual political activities required to get anything done.

    Cons

    The long term goals of the company are not always communicated well. There also seems to be a planning/product disconnect between various parts of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on your long-term product strategy and communicate it. This will attract those to whom it is of interest and allow those not interested in it to move on to other opportunities.

    Pros

    Paid competitively
    Quotas inline to market and expectations per headcount on par with industry
    Strength in channel

    Cons

    Product Mix instability
    Company trying to find itself
    Layoffs stretching remaining individuals
    Senior Mgt can be a bit ingrown and not dynamic. Lot of excellent talent has left for other senior technology and storage roles.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company and technology as do not seem to make a profitable journey in the market place with stock price in the 1's.

    Pros

    Strong engineering and field technician support.

    Cons

    Management needs to be changed. They have no idea what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    More VP's need to see medium size accounts and come to the territories more. At corporate they get stuck in a vacuum.

    Pros

    The people I work with on a daily basis are fantastic. I feel that Quantum has a small company feel and absolutely you can determine how much you want to contribute to Quantum's success. The culture of helping each other and working as a team, not keeping secrets, and working towards a common goal is very prevalent.

    I have a lot of respect for managers and individual contributors. In my group, the current manager has done a great job sharing his vision and directing where he wants the team to go. Except for 2 people that come to mind, Individual contributors at Quantum are self motivated and will always assist if needed.

    Cons

    Due to previous down-sizing, many people are stretched thin. I know that I wear multiple hats and it's difficult to accomplish as much as I'd like or meet everybody's expectations. Fortunately, I do feel that the workload is understood and appreciated, and I appreciate not being micromanaged. Because of the sheer amount of work, the work-life balance tilts much more towards work than I'd like, but the hours are flexible so if there are outside commitments it's easy to work them in.

    Advice to Management

    It is exciting seeing our financials continue to get stronger and hopefully that will eventually allow additional perks for employees. Right now benefits/perks are very average.
