    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

    Pros

    Lower management gave employees good treatment, upper management kind of gives you the run-around on layoffs.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs, doesn't seem to be a long term place unless you want to wait for your severance

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about the plans to the employees. CEO's talk the talk but seem to lack on follow through.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people and a lot of learning potential throughout the company to adopt new skill sets and grow your knowledge base of emerging technologies.

    Cons

    Big on video trainings and less on hands on training...for visual or tactical learners it is difficult. A lot of corporate change every year and shuffling roles. Tough to convey consistent messaging from year to year.

    Advice to Management

    Hone in on mentoring those under you, to bring out the best results.

    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Generally the is a really good group of people to work with and everyone cares about the customer experience. The office is casual and there is usually an option to work from home at least part of the week. Good amount of freedom if you are getting your work done.

    Cons

    Some of the technology is nearing the end of its lifecycle and there may not be enough new products to sustain the revenue stream as a result, there has been a rolling stream of layoffs over the last several years.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and talent. Good life work balance.

    Cons

    Management does not appreciate the sales talent they have. Stock holders are treated far better. Change may be good but not every quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be changed and sales management needs to be retrained.
