    My Dream Job at a Fantastic Company

    May 6, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Foster City, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I have been working at Qualys for since late 2021. Qualys is a fast-growing company and a wonderful place to work! What made my decision to join Qualys special was my manager brining a bunch of flowers and a warm hug on day 1. - Qualys is rapidly growing so I see new positions that were not there previously - Culture is conducive to creating new friends and mentors with lots of opportunities to get involved based on your interest - Love the flexibility, transparency and inclusiveness

    Cons

    I am a person with positive outlook, so I see every challenge as an opportunity to improve. I sometimes wish change happens faster but get that it takes time.

    BAD Culture, Worst Company I Have Ever Worked For In My Career (HIGH TURNOVER RATE!!!)

    Aug 26, 2022 - IT Engineer in Foster City, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Unfortunately, none. They seem to burn employees out to save costs, and justify it by giving a decent bonus as a incentive.

    Cons

    I have never worked at a company that makes you pay for apparel or swag to represent their brand. It’s the small things that add up and show how they treat the people that work hard for them. The office feels lifeless and a little dated. They don’t feed their employees lunch, just vending machines in the kitchen. Brace yourself to pack your own lunch. Their HQ office is located in a small, quiet, corporate city, which can be demotivating. No room for growth or opportunity either (they fill roles from outside of the company, rather than promote within the organization. It was also astonishing to see how much turnover the company has and to watch HR not consider bringing in new ideas to retain talent.

    Great stepping stone for cyber security industry

    Nov 2, 2022 - Technical Account Manager (TAM) in Foster City, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Tons of things to learn, lots of training tutorial videos available

    Cons

    Your salary will be strictly related to your performance from your quota. This may have nothing to do with your performance since you have no control over those accounts that you're taking care of. Whether they expand or shrink, TAM will only have tiny contribution to the decision.

    Most toxic environment I have ever worked in

    Mar 18, 2022 - Technical Support 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    great healthcare, comp, bonus and RSUs for everyone

    Cons

    The mantra in support is "metrics above all else". Work-life balance is non-existent. There is an expectation from management in both the US and India that support reps should work 12-14 hours a day on tickets. Its all about the number of tickets you are taking, not the quality of your work. Management sees this problem and has decided that it is not a problem - they'll just burn you out and then hire more people. They do not care about you, your growth, your career path, your work-life balance - nothing but metrics. Most people still there have lots of shares they just don't want to give up. No one wants to be there, quality is not improving, do you self a favor and pass on the job offer no matter how good the money sounds.

    Typical Indian Company in Bay-area

    Feb 9, 2022 - Engineering in Foster City, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    1- A typical Indian company in bay area. 2- Moving most of their work force to India for cheap labor .. (Getting good profit there , so good for India) 3- Share price is going up and you will get good money in shares.

    Cons

    1- Horrible management and company is moving around one person's choice, favoritism towards individuals. 2- HR has no role they are just answering machines. Don't take any kind of harassment seriously. 3- If you are in India then its full of politics. Higher management is very inclined towards few employees. You will ask anyone in company and get some inside unbelievable stories. 4- No work life balance if you refused then they will remove you and hire some one from India. 5- Higher management will ask you to post some good reviews in Glassdoor to improve the company reputation. 6- Many people who works there, are working for Shares . lol 7- Terrible culture in US office. In India office I came to know that if you you are Marathi then A++ 8- Most of +ve reviews are sponsored. 9- Some people said its like a cult where some devotees are there who only knows how to say YES to the Management. Regardless what Management is asking.
