    I have been working at Quantum Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with Quantum for just under a year and am loving it. I have been able to increase my knowledge of both the industry and my trade while working with some of the brightest groups of people. I get so much personal fulfillment from working with my team, having a work-life balance, and learning.

    Cons

    There are billion moving parts, so it can be a little overwhelming to work here if you're not keen on a fast-paced, intense environment.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more tools to employees to on-board them more quickly and get them running!

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Colleagues are smart and kind. Work/life balance is good. Telecommuting was permitted.

    Cons

    Layoffs/downsizing by upper management were yearly at that time. Vacation days were scarce and forced vacations for better quarter financials weren't cool.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Quantum's StorNext and tape libraries are great technology.

    Cons

    The business is poorly managed, the products have not been designed for the ease of use that customers need. They have been through 5 CEOs in the past 12 months and the newest one is a first time CEO coming from a smaller role in a much smaller company. The company has a lot of tough problems to solve and not the leadership to solve them. This is not a company to leave a stable job for, even if you hate the job you are leaving.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for people to make huge impacts in an every growing industry

    As Quantum is going through it's digital transformation, the culture feels more like a start up. New people are bringing fresh ideas.

    New management is open to new ideas and new thinking. There is a real buzz throughout the company.

    Amazing opportunity to learn and grow with a transforming business.

    Cons

    Legacy staff is set in their ways and aren't embracing the new approaches.

    Management has changed several times over the past 18 months (as happens during a massive shift in business direction and during any transformation).

    Quantum is rapidly becoming the leader in managing the massive amounts of video content being created globally. It is an exciting time of transformation.
