    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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..)

    Monotonous, boring work.
    Middle management is incompetent.

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

    Fellow employees are very nice to work with. Very interested in helping get stuff done and resolve issues.

    CEO is way over his head - doesn't help by hiring similarly equipped execs

    Bit of a gerbil wheel, unless you are in the inner circle. No real career growth potential

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the board: replace the entire executive management team. this company has huge potential but not with the current management

    Pros

    Decent benefits package and starting salary

    Cons

    Very few chances for advancement or pay increases, frequent layoffs and uncertainty about future of the company. Poor sales management and employee on boarding process is pretty much non-existent. Top down management style.

    Advice to Management

    Solicit and take interest in what's going on with customer facing employees and it will help you improve the environment and retain employees who care about the future of the company.
