Anyone have any news on how / if Covid is impacting sales / renewals? Any redundancy risks within the sales / support teams?

Poor Happy@Quest the only culture at Quest is one of layoffs and the most happy folks are in China and other low cost countries where Quest creates more jobs each year.
It just never occurred to you and your upper management buddies that one reason Quest has such a hard time with reaching those numbers is your best and brightest minds are long gone.
But one good thing though....the rolling layoffs have finally started to hit upper management too.
Enjoy your time at Quest!
The post from Happy@Quest on June 3rd did not age well LOL
@8uqp+1598SWmD - is that you LuAnne?
For those who don't know, LuAnne is the HR big wig who tells people on glassdoor to be happy they have jobs and quit complaining about no raises.
Fake news as usual about Quest! There have indeed been annual raises since Dell and bonuses have also paid out as planned. Support has not 'fully been outsourced to Panama'. Firstly, Quest Support is delivered by Quest employees so it has NOT been outsourced. Support is still being delivered from U.S., Canada and other global locations in Asia and Europe. All staff are working from home and no impact is being seen anywhere in Support or any other function.
There is no doom and gloom in Quest. We're a really happy bunch of people and this is because of the great culture and people working here.
Note to posters who are clearly sh– stirring, fact check first so you can at least appear as if you know what you are talking about.
Sales were already way off (hence no raises/cost of living adjustments since Dell) so I don't think there has been much of a change due to Covid. The poor performance was already entrenched in the culture. Support has been fully outsourced to Panama so when the virus starts to cause havoc in Central America, support will definitely have issues.
Overall, Quest can't blame the doom and gloom on Covid (as LuAnne tried to do on a recent glassdoor post). Their issues are deeply rooted and not going away anytime soon. Maybe the new Corel CEO can help but I think it's more like changing captains after the iceberg has already been hit. Maybe it's fitting that Quest become the new Wordperfect - still hanging around with a few loyal customers but a shadow of its former self.
