Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Novell full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Plenty of brilliant people who are experts in their field
- Good balance of new development and maintenance
- Wonderful flexibility, especially in the work/life balance

Cons

Previous management have given Novell a bit of a negative reputation concerning job security. However, I can honestly say that lately, I've been more positive about Novell's long-term future (and my future with them) than I have during my entire career. I imagine the next six months will be hard for most tech companies, but I am increasingly encouraged about the future.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work; thank you for re-investing in the company.

    I worked at Novell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    mature company, good benefits, caring, solid product management, very business/profit oriented, very large customer base and returning business, fun

    Cons

    mature company, takes time to embrace new opportunities, probably slightly below industry average compensation (money isn't everything though, enough pros to make up for it)


  2. "Great pay, great people, but a lot of chaos in what is going on in the company"

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Novell as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is great
    Hours are flexible and work load isn't too bad

    Cons

    The history of the company has lead to a lot of messed up business processes that are out of date and the company doesn't have time or money to fix it, so they have to deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    Update your company, your holding onto very old processes and technologies that are slowly killing your company.
