They are posting quite a few attractive offers in my country... but from what I have been reading on this site, this company doesn't really have a future then? Better stay away from it?

quest is a joke. Better products than Quest. There will be more layoffs in North America.
"doesn't have a future" isn't quite right. Doesn't have a good future - probably more correct. You'll continue to see cost cutting, people trying to build little kingdoms to "protect" themselves and most likely another sale within the next 24 months (as soon as the current bunch can cut their way to profitable exit). In other words, it's just another software company waiting to be absorbed into the next trendy group.
If you're looking for a career, looking to grow your skills, looking for mentoring, or looking to advance, you're looking at the wrong company. If you are looking to collect a paycheck, looking to be hounded by micro-managers, or looking to enter the corporate political arena then you're looking at the right place.
It beats starving.
Quest is making money. You will be getting a regular paycheck. We pay market wages.
You will not enjoy the work and the culture s---s. Backstabbing is rampant.
However, the basics are covered - solid pay, solid benefits (not great though)
which country are you in?
