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
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
Curious for how much Quest was acquired?
I hope there won’t be "Christmas cuts", but I wouldn’t be surprised at all. Anyone has any insights?
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
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
Is it true something is coming?
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?
So very very sad.
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
Say's it all, really.
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
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
Anyone have any news on how / if Covid is impacting sales / renewals? Any redundancy risks within the sales / support teams?
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
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 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
Sources reported layoffs of the entire U.S. based support teams, Directors on down to be phased out by mid-January 2020. Extra support staff to be hired in Panama for continued support with a small U.S. team to be put into place for Federal... — read more
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
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
Already in place.
Well technically, he resigned but the reality is that Jeff was fired. I'm surprised it took Francisco Partners this long to send him packing! Hopefully the "team" that he brought with him will get "laid off" as well. Good riddance to bad rubbish. — read more
Look at how Jeff (and his minions) have run other companies and you see the pattern. Sell off any tangible assets (ie buildings) under the "we're not a real estate company". Drastically cut people on day 1 (he cut close to 1/3 of Quest) to... — read more
In case anybody cares, there were more layoffs at Quest yesterday. Is it just me, or has this company lost even the semblance of job security?
Not hearing anything in the news or anywhere? What's the current situation? Was the split from Dell really the last straw?
Any details of layoffs across the Americas / EMEA / APAC ?
There are rumours. How many survived this time ?
What’s that going to do for Quest ? How many times have they tried sharepoint now and failed ? So funny.
I heard that some people are being let go this month in the US ? Can anyone confirm ? Or is it just natural attrition.
