    Pros

    Great work environment and flexible schedule

    Cons

    Performance reviews are NOT based on "pay for performance". Only selected few per department receive top ratings. Managers are forced to limit rewarding others due to tight budget requirements.

    Pros

    Has a patent on deduplication which the company uses quite effectively. Has lots of talented people on board. Products are generally quite mature.

    Cons

    There is a large legacy codebase. If you join as a software developer, you will probably end up fixing bugs most of the time. If that's the kind of job you like, you'll love it here.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do more to encourage innovation in engineering department. Not everyone likes to fix bugs all the time. Maybe start a "20% project", Google style? Need more tech-talks where engineers can present their ideas.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Find a new purpose.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
