    I have been working at Quantum Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people that work here are some of the best in the industry. The culture is really good and people are extremely friendly. The company is very nimble and makes it easy to be successful. People are encouraged to take ownership of their role and to give feedback to management. I feel very valued as an employee here!

    Cons

    For being a 35 year old company sometimes things change fast, you need to be flexible to work here. Some of the technology is old, but the company is starting to reinvent itself, it would take some time but is going in the right direction

    Advice to Management

    Some managers are often ineffective because they allow themselves to avoid seeing problems and go on believing things are good enough

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

    Pros

    Quantum is changing the way we look at storage and even before starting, I had read enough to know that the leadership is headed in the right direction. This is a tough industry right now, but whether I am in a meeting or on a call, the commitment and confidence in our future does not waiver.

    Quantum clearly understands that being flexibility and supportive does not equate to less productivity. There is a work-life balance here like no other I’ve experienced before.

    After joining Quantum, I realized it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I learn something new every day and when I do not understand something or need additional clarification, I have a huge community of support to offer assistance. Above all else, I feel like the leadership is here to help me succeed.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change and misinterpretation of the reason for that change can cause unwarranted concern.

    Advice to Management

    Continue participating in the present and planning for the future.

    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.

    Pros

    Interesting products
    Good benefits
    Flexible schedules
    Great coworkers

    Cons

    Compensation is not close to industry standards
    Constant layoffs in an attempt to be profitable leading
    Lots of management layers, they layoff plenty of workers but never layoff managers (they actually tend to add layers when performing layoffs)
    No direction, upper management continues to drive the company into the ground
    Stock price constantly dropping
    Products, while interesting, are stagnant. There is little innovation these days
    Raises and promotions are hard to come by
    CEO keeps stating they are a growth company, but they only grow smaller and smaller

    Advice to Management

    Find a competent CEO
    Shed some layers of management, do you really need 2 or 3 levels of vice president?
    Stop pretending you are a growth company
    Figure out how to sell your products

    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.

    Pros

    Work and personal life balance was great

    Cons

    CEO and team not sure where they want to go. Slashing sales team and trying to do it all with less is a potentially volatile mixture for failure.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of upper management and you might have a chance.listen to your field sales team. They are closes to your customers.

    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.
