@3awx+16JqR0Dl It may not look like it now. But being fired from Quest is a blessing. You can soon put Quest in your rear view mirror and move on to better things. Pity those still employed. They are the band playing on the titanic you’re in a life raft.
@3awx+16JqR0Dl - Quest has a pattern of only keeping the "new and shiney" so it doesn't matter how much experience or expertise you have, if you're not new, you're old and if you're old, you're gone.
The reason is, if you acquire a company, you can't get rid of their employees that fast and as we all know, mergin two companies shows, you always have to much headcount. As this had to be reduced they kicked out their own employees first. I never saw that in the past working in different bigger companies. I saw many merger but they never kicked out their own poeple, Quest is the first company kicking their own employees asses. So there is no corporate identity from the management to their people. Means no corporate identity to the products and no corporate identity to their customers. They are first class loosers!
Did you just get fired ? have there been more layoffs ?
At least now I know the reason why I was fired.
They'll be buying Novell next. Or Blackberry.
I think the next company they buy may be "bubble sort". After all, if you're going to collect obsolete stuff, why not go for the throat?
And a storm is coming. Mature software products level off and then decline in sales. Francisco partners will not want to hold on to such a company for much longer.
I feel a great deal of pity for the person who joins Quest looking for a career these days.
I feel even more pity for those in entrenched positions tee heeing with their little buddies, all protecting each other from the coming storm.
That’s the number one problem with Quest. You never see the moves they make coming.
But you can bet it’s not a good move for employees of either company.
Yes we do know what comes next. Didn’t see this coming. Not sure what the financial advisors are doing now.
Binary tree ? F—ing BINARY TREE ?
Oh my god. They truly have last their way.
They've figured out that they have no idea how to successfully build a new product so they've been buying companies with decent bookkeeping, hacking the core of their employees once their 6 months is up and trying to make Quest look more financially sound than it actually is. It's right out of the Microfocus and DXC playbooks of failed software companies.
Have they mentioned how this is a successful move that lines up with some catch phrase?
A great day for Quest and Binary? Then you have seen this pattern before And should know what comes next. Wishing you guys the best.
