Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Novell full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There were really no pros

Cons

Dying company with lack of cohesive vision and leadership. Continually look for ways to cheat sales people out of commission.

Advice to Management

Stick to a strategy and do not jerk the people around. Pay sales people what they are worth so that you do not have the massive amounts of turnover that have been prevalent in the 2000's. Invest in a lead/demand generation staff and platform to drive inbound traffic for products and services

    Some Field Reps try to take advantage of the Inside Reps.
    Having to argue with compensation team to get payed on an account you worked on.
