Pros

Good company that understands where it has been and has a plan to get to where it needs to be. Continuing to move to a strong Partner model. Feels like a much smaller company than it is. People are motivated. Most of the Management works hard to motivate their employees. Opportunities for promotion are good depending on role.

Cons

Global company that is moving more development off-shore. Some of the Management seems to be looking at ways to promote their own interest verse Novell's interest. The company does a lot more "Virtually" so less face to face meetings, trainings, and team interaction.

Advice to Management

Need to replace some of the management team that are filtering information.

    Pros

    Great technology, great corporate support on products and programs, great people at corporate who really care about their jobs, technology, and each other.

    Cons

    Marketing of products and services has been historically a challenge for the company, so it is hard to sell the solutions because of market perception of the company. Sales managers and VP come and go each year, so customers and employees get frustrated with each new VP's "program".

    Advice to Management

    Work on marketing or solutions and corporate America's perception of the company and bring in McKinsey or Bain or someone that can help create long term strategy.
