Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Casual dress, relaxed atmosphere, somewhat flexible work arrangements. Industry-standard benefits (health, dental, vision). Reasonable degree of freedom in engineering. Projects are resourced sufficiently. Bonuses are available in some positions.

Cons

Not much culture, despite occasional attempts to boost employee involvement. Sales-focused to a fault, with lacking investment in R&D. Small teams result in good cohesion but limit innovation. No bonuses for most R&D positions.

Advice to Management

Consider the importance of engineering to the company and whether it has sufficient investment.

    I have been working at Quest Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great flex hours, let you work remote from home. Have fruit as a perk and a kourig coffee machine.

    Cons

    Some managers are inept and even abusive but because upper management is so disconnected, the status quo continues. This company could easily be a $3billion firm but there is a lack of leadership at the top and competing priorities that pit departments against each other for resources. This internal competition hurts the entire company.

    Advice to Management

    Upper leadership needs to be more involved. i never saw the CEO, VP's, etc. come and talk to any of the staff - they only interacted with a handful of people and ignored the rest.

    I have been working at Quest Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual work environment
    free coffee, tea and fruit

    Cons

    They do not promote within. Applying for jobs via the internal Quest website is of zero use since the recruiters are only incentivized to hire "non quest" employees (and yes apparently that includes contract workers). So the recruiters simply throw your application away if your applying via the internal site. It's very frustrating and took me six months to figure this out after applying for a job several times before going directly to the hiring managers of which they had no clue about my interest or ever seen my resume.

    Advice to Management

    Why not promote within?
