    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Novell treats employees like family - which maybe was part of their downfall. Pre-merger it was a great place to work - we'll see what happens next.

    Cons

    Senior leadership seemed to concentrate more on cost-cutting than raising revenues. Novell always got great technical reviews but could never translate that into more sales - shame.


  2. "Great work environment with challenging opportunities to learn and develop."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Overall great people to work with. Company has a keen interest in keeping employees happy. The work is challenging and satisfying.

    Cons

    Upper management at times experience a disconnect from the work in the "trenches". The agreement on strategy of what type of company Novell is can cost the company revenue.

    Advice to Management

    There is money being left on the table on a regular basis with lost opportunities and customers taking advantage of Novell being too "nice". Watch for opportunities to capitalize on revenue opportunities, especially within support.
