Thread regarding Quest Software Inc. layoffs

"Voluntary Attrition" instead of layoffs

Well according to the CEO, he has been surprised at the amount of voluntary attrition (people quitting) that has happened since he took the helm. Maybe more layoffs won't be needed but as a friendly reminder, will the last person out the door turn the lights off please?

If you are still at Quest - you obviously are still there for the paycheck and because you have no other choices; which s---s - but to think that this place is going to save you and turn it around is a pipe-dream... People quitting shouldnt be a surprise to anyone - its actually a telling sign...

@PafAhf5-3lmo - Savings would never be used to revitalize the business. It would be used to show savings to make up for the horrible sales numbers. They need to show a good bottom line so the next s---er to buy the parts of the company can feel good about what they're getting. Same trick Dell used on Fransisco Partners/Elliot Management.

I wonder if the CEO would be even more surprised at the amount of voluntary attrition from employees who also have no employment to go to (for example, Cork data protection teams). Surely a grim indictment.

On topic, why have DP language support in the Cork office? The staff aren't been retained and the requirement for the languages is exceptionally occasional and always was. If Quest is serious about making justified cuts surely jettisoning luxury support elements such as underused language support for underperforming products would be a logical step. Panama offers English support (and Spanish for that matter) at fractional cost. These savings could help revitalize other areas of the business.

Quest was never a leader it was a hype . Everyone partied when they were spun off and now I guess the party ended.
