    I worked at Quantum Corporation full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Long tenured team, know their business well,,dedicated to their jobs, seem to all get along well and work together. Great Flexibility depending on manager/director, easy to get a long with people, not much gossiping about other employees compared to some companies I have worked for. Most people seem to like what they do and enjoy and seem to stick here. The Sales performers can make an obscene amount of money. Quantum is making strides to move int he right direction.

    Cons

    As of now there may be slightly delayed upward mobility but we have some great hopes for Quantum to evolve and hire the right people in place to move this company where it needs to go. Some turnover in certain divisions (sales mainly-people not prepared for the complexity of our product so weeding out the weak and trying to attract the strong) Company physical environment needs to change to attract hip candidates. Quantum's Key Executives, NEED to show more excitement during their town halls or quarterly employee meeting. It is quite boring to see some of them. They need to start getting us fired up about things not just financial results, after all only the executives really are benefiting there. Show us company growth and the possibilities here people.

    Advice to Management

    Management here seems to give a lot of autonomy so I like that. There are a few Micro managers here that may need to learn to be better manager, but that is any company anywhere. I see the managers here helping and supporting their people more than Micro managing them. The Micro Managers know who they are and need to alter their style a bit.

    I have been working at Quantum Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are many smart people and interesting products being developed. You have the opportunity to make an impact. Quantum has an incredible team of people, and it's awesome to be a part of the change that this company is impacting in the storage industry.

    Cons

    There is so much to do that you need to make sure you are working on the highest priority items. Otherwise, you could become overwhelmed. Being part of a company that is impacting change takes intentional effort and people who look for solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue making sure there is collaboration between Engineering and the rest of the teams.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Pay, Excellent Benefits, Extremely Resourceful, Dynamic, Focused and Aggressive Sales and Marketing Teams that develop a plan and execute with precision and success.

    Cons

    Limited ramp up time with very little remote employee training and a highly geographic diverse team. Be prepared to hit the ground running with little supervision and carve your own position as you go along.

    Advice to Management

    Management is excellent, very understanding and compassionate. It is important however to ensure that you understand unique conditions and when difficulties related to remote employment transpire, you respond with optimism and not skepticism.

    I have been working at Quantum Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Quantum is a great company to be a part of and an excellent place to work. The managers are fair and the culture is accepting .Look at the employee tenure. I bet it is longer than other companies in this industry. People stay and sometimes come back. Leadership is accessible and pretty fair.

    Cons

    Stock performance has a negative impact on sales, recruiting and employee moral. There seems to be an up and down performance pattern.

    Advice to Management

    cut operating expenses and reduce your debt, we need to get this stock price up and a stronger balance sheet should help.
