That 4000 employee count is old. I would say the real count is 1000 -2500.
Aliso Viejo use to be over 1000 but is now down to less than 200. No way Quest has 4000 employees now.

@liow+17V7zBkH - the workforce expands (acquisitions) and contracts (layoffs) on a pretty routine basis now. They eat a new company, get rid of most of the HR/legal/accounting, wait for 6 months until the products are stable in the new org, layoff most of the development/qa/testing, lather, rinse, repeat.

It’s interesting that a company with such a small work force still manages to find dozens perhaps hundreds of employees to layoff every year for well over a decade now. Would make sense if Quest employed 10s of thousands of people like Dell. But 4000 or so all over the world is a small foot print yet still a year rarely goes by without a round of work force reductions. It’s an odd model for such a small company.

Not true at all...there's nobody left to layoff unless you count the C-suite and they're just marking time until the company is sold.
