    Good benefits, decent pay. Good if you just need a job and nothing else.


    The main con of this place is culture of fear. It comes top down. You have an idea just keep it to self, if it is not in line with upper managements thinking then you are fired. I have seen better team leads than directors and vps at this place. They are all accidental C-staff and VPs. Nobody dares to stand up to the CEO and CEO only wants an YES man. That culture percolates down to the managers as well, they need YES men. It is a bad company if you want to make an impact and grow your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the exec management from top down with smart people and visionaries and not YES men.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.
