    I have been working at Qualys full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with in the body of the organization
    SaaS delivery platform once a unique service but not longer
    Reasonably good Vulnerability Assessment
    Good marketing

    Cons

    No clear or confused strategy as where the company is heading
    Arrogant/ignorance management attitude toward competitors!
    No proper & meaningful internal communication
    No business processes, individual taste & experience
    CEO promoting bad culture of rudeness, lack of respect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of CEO. He does more damage than good!
    A more clear strategy.
    Treat your people with respect. They deserve more than what CEO & some arrogant executives have to offer.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Qualys in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was blindsided with a full phone interview that was earlier advised to be just an initial screening call. Interviewer doesn't seem too professional. Doesn't listen. Interviewer seems more interested in giving criticism remarks rather than observing. I have answered each question well with logical support but was told I do not qualified with because I don't sound comfortable enough. I wonder who can be comfortable after being asked with ridiculous non related questions. Interviewer advised me he would recommend my profile to the BD department instead as I would qualify there but as expected interviewer did not keep his words. Thought I was applying for a high school summer job. I question the integrity of Qualys.
