Pros

Very Relaxing atmosphere, younger professionals who generally are a pleasure to work with.

Cons

Quest Software underpays their employees for amount of work put in; I can't tell you how many times I worked until 8 or 9pm to see no improvement in what I did. I worked in the Support Renewals Department and the management was awful, no consistency, being able to make reverse decisions at the last possible moment.

Advice to Management

I would tell my management to get a college degree and take some ethical business practice courses. Treating employees like robots is unexceptable.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The People, it's a great worldwide community of smart, capable (mostly) people who are genuinely interested in supporting one another to achieve a greater good.

    Cons

    Favoritism - but what company doesn't have this in some capacity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to identify key technology trends early and create best of breed products. Be careful to listen to all opinions, not just the "heros of the moment" as they will fade in popularity and "vision" in time. There is strength in taking in all decent opinions and moving forward.

    Pros

    Quest Software is a dominant company compared to its competitors. With 3 main areas of focus, competition is everywhere. However Quest has continued to acquire companies that round out our product offerings. This allows employees more growth opportunities in terms of product development, marketing, sales, and senior management. Quest has adapted the west coast laid back mentatlity to allow employees a relaxed, yet competitive, atmosphere. Quest has a very strong senior leadership team that has helped the company weather the good times and the bad. Even in an economy on the brink of a recession, Quest is continuing to prosper and grow.

    Cons

    For some of the lower level employees, opportunities may seem limited due to the internal political heirarchy. For example, some members of the sales organization are chomping at the bit to move up the chain of command, but this obviously comes at a price of doing your time and proving that you can achieve measurable results. While being a global organiztion has its upsides, some of the spread out mentality is difficult when trying to communicate new marketing messages, sales programs, or sponsored events that Quest may be taking part in. That and a few egos of upper levels can stiffle some creativity at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to acquire small companies with great technology and properly integrate them into the Quest portfolio at a steady pace.
