Sad to See a Former Great Company Go Down the Tubes

Application Engineer (Former Employee) Provo, UT (US)

ProsGood pay, decent benefits, nice co-workers, excellent facilities, bonuses

ConsThe company has a reputation of doing layoffs each year. They are in a downward death spiral that may not bottom out. Working there is pleasant, but you must constantly wonder if you will have a job the next week.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop changing directions every few months. Focus on selling stuff. Stop trying to be "the big player". Novell is no longer a powerhouse.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
