    I have been working at Quantum Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    "Family", sharpest minds, great people to work with. Good product line. Liberal vacation policy, good benefits.
    I loved my job at Quantum.

    Cons

    Unable to get their stock price up...ever ever ever. ZERO emphasis on in-house product or process training.
    Constant layoffs; I have seen at least 10 rounds of major layoffs in six years at Quantum, creating a perpetually tense environment.

    Advice to Management

    Quantum has a great product line and should be making money hands over fist. Getting rid of the useless CEO last fall was the first step toward recovering the company. I wished I was there to experience the "new, profitable" Quantum, but it still has a long way to go.
    Train your people. The services could be SO much better!

    Pros

    Great people and products. Good benefits package and salary. Access to training is great.

    Cons

    Need better leadership to implement cost control measures. Continual lay offs to save money rather than focus on growing business.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what you are good at. Cut frivolous spending.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly good product line, good filler job for the resume, free coffee and popcorn. Can’t think of anymore pros but the required field is 20 words.

    Cons

    Typical shareholder company....answers to its stockholders but doesn’t take care of its employees.

    Continuous layoffs. Last round of layoffs was 3 in 3 months. And 2 CEOs within 2 months.
    Hmmmm....

    Crappy pay all around - not up to industry standards. Bonuses are laughable considering how hard you work for them. For the hours you work you’re better off bartending, as your hourly pay will be higher.

    Promotions are dependent on who you suck up to.

    Total politics. The “lower level” employees do all the work while upper management sits around drinking Starbucks while collecting a nice paycheck.

    There are several others layers of management (not upper-level) that are not needed.

    Too many processes that are redundant and unnecessary.

    Has the mentality that “This is how it’s already been done so why make changes? Obviously you need to make changes because people are quitting left and right like rats jumping a burning ship.

    Advice to Management

    Do some actual work. Listen to your employees and actually treat them like valuable human beings. Don’t be so “top-heavy” in your management. Pay your employees what they’re worth. Oh, and yeah, if your employees get a promotion, why don’t you actually give them a raise along with that promotion?

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

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Excellent people to work with. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Low stock price, reduction in benefits like automatic 401K matching. Layoffs multiple times per year the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Layoffs let go of many talented people over recent years. Make sure that you look to find other jobs at Quantum that these people could fill rather then letting all of them go.

    I had a great boss who always gave me the opportunity to learn and challenge myself.
