SKO no more
Bad sport metaphors and EBITDA and no arrests barely
Canning folk the week before SKO is a good idea? Ya think?
What is the probability that there will be cuts this Q1?
It feels like job security becomes more and more uncertain as time goes on. Have you heard any interesting rumors recently?
Things are looking bleak
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 need leaders
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
To Many Naive Employees At Honeywell
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
Will there be cuts by the end of the year?
I hope there won’t be "Christmas cuts", but I wouldn’t be surprised at all. Anyone has any insights?
Anybody knows the financial terms of the Clearlake acquision?
Curious for how much Quest was acquired?
Salty dogs barking don’t keep me up at night.
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
Cuts before the end of September
Is it true something is coming?
Everybody is leaving Quest
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
Useless european management team
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
Those who are not laid off are leaving on their own
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?
Does Quest have the capacity to launch a new good product?
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
More layoffs at Quest this month?
Has anybody else heard rumors that more layoffs are coming this month?
Food for thought
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
Hold on tight
Say's it all, really.
Perfect example of that old day
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 I hear there were more layoffs at Quest ? Any truth to that ?
So very very sad.
No more layoffs!
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
Quest is Buying Binary Tree
To be announced tomorrow- explains the recent layoffs
You cannot cut your way to growth!
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
Question for current old time questies. If there are any left that is
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
Time to leave
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
More layoffs today?
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
400 laid off today at Quest
This company is a dumpster fire now. Quest used to have a great reputation as a software leader with quality support teams. Now they are just garbage. What a shame. Ever since Francisco Partners and Elliot Management took over in 2016 it has been all... — read more
They just laid off the Dublin Ohio support team. Cost cutting appears to be the goal and some long-term employees were included.
One Identity gone
One Identity is in the process of being folded back into Quest with a (rumoured) serious amount of layoff's due in the next fortnight, including an expected massive hit to support (both One Identity and Quest) - which is already far too slim. Its... — read more
No enterprise experienced managers
New CEO has created a new management structure with a total of 0 years experience dealing with enterprise customers. Removed alot of experienced senior managers and replaced with yes men. Looks like we have another soon-to-be failed CEO running the... — read more
DM org up for sale?
Lots of cost cutting (very minor stuff like Slack) to save every penny. Add that the new CEO seems to have done some significant house cleaning and the only exec not mentioned anymore on the Quest web site is Data Management. It does raise the... — read more
Covid - impact to Quest?
Anyone have any news on how / if Covid is impacting sales / renewals? Any redundancy risks within the sales / support teams?
Another new CEO?!?!
Well the accountant from Francisco Partners found another "bottom of the barrel" candidate - the former CEO of Corel Corp. They did so well with Word Perfect and Corel Draw that they think he can turn Quest around. I'm sure that he will be able to... — read more
