Happened last year just prior to SKO so probably a good chance it happens again this year.
Was talking to a buddy this morning about the game and he pointed out that between the last big cut and this one that many of the people that were cut attended the wellbeing sessions. I spoke to someone else and they also attended.Teams meant no... — read more
Patrick, you say you are a data driven decision maker and ignore emotion or intuition. How much more data do you need to admit you have failed? From your initial hiring choices through to the situation you have created now. Accept the data and do the... — read more
One of our top team members, with several years of multi-domain experience, was abruptly terminated without any reasonable cause. There was no opportunity for knowledge transfer, no time for a proper farewell. We have hit a new low. Why would anyone... — read more
OI is being separated from Quest again. All of a sudden the rush to separate them back into their own. Patrick has been on a rampage making all the wrong business decisions trying to sell this off. Needed to upset the lives of all their employees... — read more
Well it's that time of year and the word is more cost saving targets to meet with the subsequent headcount reductions that follow. Watch this space.
This is not normal. I've depleted my savings and I don't know what to do anymore. I'd take anything at this point but I'm simply getting no offers. What am I doing wrong? I've sent out over a thousand applications in the last three months. I've had... — read more
Bad sport metaphors and EBITDA and no arrests barely
Canning folk the week before SKO is a good idea? Ya think?
It feels like job security becomes more and more uncertain as time goes on. Have you heard any interesting rumors recently?
It's just a matter of time before we have major cuts. I've started looking already to see how things are looking out there and prepare myself for every eventuality, and I can say that the situation is less than stellar. I can't find any good remote... — read more
We have too many bosses who like to call themselves leaders but their actions speak otherwise. We need people who are willing to take risks to ensure a better future for the company and not those who are more than happy with the status quo and who... — read more
Amazing the number of posts and comments from employees who are claim the vaccination does not work. Reality is that COVID 19 keeps mutating because of the unvaccinated. This is the cause of the breakthrough cases. Yet most use this as an excuse... — read more
I hope there won’t be "Christmas cuts", but I wouldn’t be surprised at all. Anyone has any insights?
Curious for how much Quest was acquired?
No company is perfect. I’ve seen a lot of good people get let go, and that’s a shame. I’ve also heard from our customers the silly things our exes say when hawking their cut rate wares. How many posters here I wonder are fuchsia knights?… — read more
Is it true something is coming?
All the talented people I know LEFT. This is a sh-t show now. Good place only for lazy people. Company is doing aggresive tactics to sell it. Good WLB though
The european sales management team is useless, too busy sitting on their elbows and being di-ks for the sake of it. Cant complain, the amount of times its been covered up only to see them promoted. If you're not a favorite, you might as well work in... — read more
I just wonder where this kind of company management leads? All those who are worth anything are either cut or have left. What will be left of this company?
momentum for new products evaporated years ago I think that almost no one believes that Quest can be close to what it used to be, but still... I still believe that the company can launch a new good product. Or is there really no hope for that? — read more
Has anybody else heard rumors that more layoffs are coming this month?
Well, I left Quest as I wrote about doing in another thread about 2 months ago and my only regret is that I did not do so sooner. My pay increased by 300 percent. Yes, you read that correctly 300 percent and the perks this new company offers, free... — read more
Say's it all, really.
Just watched another video from on high. And It takes a special type of jackass to hold a cheerleading session about how well sales are going these past few months during a year when you changed your whole leadership team cancelled pay increases and... — read more
So very very sad.
The long trickle of layoffs looks like it's come to an end...there's nobody left! Support outsourced to Panama Development outsourced to various Eastern European countries QA isn't necessary if there's no development Marketing was shut... — read more
To be announced tomorrow- explains the recent layoffs
Everything Quest does now is about cost cutting. They are just a nearly dead brand hoping to hang on long enough for a good exit. Their restructuring efforts have nothing to do with trying to grow its all about shedding cost. You cannot cut... — read more
I am curious.. Doesn’t working for a company that year after year struggles to make numbers each quarter, even in a good economy, get old? Doesn’t sitting around waiting for the next round of layoffs, hoping you get your merit increase get to... — read more
How they think anyone who has been with the company for more than 3 years would think that a new tag line and another restructuring was going to lead to anything is beyond me. If you can’t generate sales your problems go beyond anything a new tagline... — read more
I know Friday is usually not a layoff day but somebody mentioned that more people received notification, and now I'm worried once again. Can anybody confirm if this is true? Personally, I think people are scared and they're projecting, but it would... — read more
