    Pros

    There is a good culture of telecommuting for all employees who do not really need to at the office; there is flexibility as well.

    Cons

    Lack of growth financially due to the absence of raises and also the stock price is really bad right now.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on virtualization and cloud...improve stock price.

    Pros

    Flexible work-hours, casual dress-code, and easy to reach management, independent working environment, and decent paid-time off from work.

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunities, no mentorship programs, no 401-K matching from the company, and the company overall lacks any time of 'workplace culture.' The employees can be rather cold and it takes a while to feel welcomed.

    Advice to Management

    The lack of growth at the company is concerning, which is possibly why the turn-over rate at Quantum seems to be so high. Setting up a mentorship program at the company would also help retain talent, especially younger, less experienced talent.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Engineers to work with. Great Insurance, 401K matching

    Cons

    The management is the worst I've seen in over 25 Years developing Software. Especially the Tape Automation Management in Englewood Colorado. In my opinion, they are why the stock went from $40.00 per share to $0.40 per share in 15 years. It hit a low of $0.09 a few years ago. They also show favoritism to a few brown noses, that got all the kudos, raises, etc...

    Advice to Management

    Look into a different field of employment. Maybe Men's Rooms attendants, or their assistants.

    Pros

    Great company to work with; superior products and service offerings. Senior management support is very good.

    Cons

    Team management is weak; does not provide career growth opportunities; does not value employee contributions.

    Advice to Management

    To advocate performing skip-level meetings with employees to address morale issues.
    By doing such meetings, you will retain high-performing team members.
