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

Pros

Very relaxed work environment, fantastic benefits, family friendly, free gym, great food at the cafeteria, tons of paid time off. New leadership seems to be moving the company in a good direction.

Cons

Lower pay than average, just about no opportunity to move up. Everyone I talks to wonders if I'm fearful for my job because of the company's history. Novell isn't a new up and coming company in Utah.

Advice to Management

Quit training your competition's employees. Give your young talent a reason to stick around. This company needs new blood to invigorate innovation. Give employees opportunities to make their mark on the company. Give people a reason to make cool stuff again.

    I have been working at Novell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are still good people at Novell. A lot of flexibility doing your job.

    Cons

    Management does not reinvest in R&D. It takes years versus months for new product features.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about the customer (again).

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

    Pros

    The salary is competitive. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    There is GREAT question of whether or not the company will survive.

    Advice to Management

    Just tell the truth of what the direction is for the company; will it eventually dissolve? Open up about the plans to re-locate outside of Utah.
