    Pros

    Nice atmosphere and plenty of room to move.

    Cons

    Not recognized for performance and quality. Pay is all based on stats.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the employee for all the intangibles they bring to the table which is NOT measured via stats i.e. spending extra time with the customer to troubleshoot and resolve with one call as opposed to getting off the phone for the stat. After all, that saves the company $ and provides customer sat. There is no incentive for the tech to operate with this philosophy. If the customer calls back five times, then the tech stats look good and they get a raise while the good tech that spends time with the customer gets nothing.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company was comprised of several smaller groups of talented people who were all profitable in their specialties. Once acquired by Quantum, they became lost in an ill conceived conglomeration before they were killed off one by one.

    Cons

    They buy up profitable companies, turn them into cash cows, suck them dry of money, layoff all the productive people and re-label other companies stuff as their own

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Next time, fire yourself first, not last

    Everyone I worked with was great, but they were workers, not managers

    Too many layers of management that do nothing except try to keep their jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up!! Most of you need to go!!! Stop protecting each other's jobs!!! You are ruining what used to be a good company.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Flexible work environment. The quality of personal across the company is good . Excellent team work.

    Cons

    Quantum has not recovered from the recession. Layoffs have been the norm for the last five years. Management cannot jump start sales and cost cutting has become the way to improve the bottom line.

    Pros

    Good employees to work with
    Decent Starting Salary and Benefits
    Nice Severance and Continuation pay package after the layoff! (If getting laid off is a good thing..)

    Cons

    Monotonous, boring work.
    Middle management is incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Besides figuring out how to sustain the company without your main core competency being lay-offs.. Engage your high potential employees for growth opportunities.
