Attachmate Careers & Info

Current CEO: Jeff Hawn

Status: Active

Attachmate Corporation is an investor-backed technology company that focuses primarily on legacy products, having just acquired Novell, which also owned SuSE Linux. The current CEO and Chairman is Jeff Hawn. Attachmate Corporation culture largely focuses on sales organization and building the business while maintaining revenue through renewals. For those interested in working at Attachmate, there are openings within the sales organizations on a relatively regular basis. In addition to sales careers, some of the other Attachmate careers include the development and support side of the organization, especially now that the company has tripled in size with the recent acquisition of Novell.

The company has been divided into four main business units. The first of these is the legacy Attachmate with technology around mainframe development and stability. Prior to Novell joining Attachmate, the only other business unit was NetIQ, which focused on security related software. With the recent technology that Novell offers, two other business units were defined: Novell and SuSE Linux. There has been speculation on Attachmate's plans on the future of SuSE Linux, but at the present time, all signs indicate that it is business as usual for SuSE and their primary product, SuSE Linux Enterprise Server.

The Attachmate culture combines what previously existed within Attachmate as a separate organization with the corporate culture that previously existed within Novell. The unity of these two companies has yet to define itself as the union is not that old. The company has put an emphasis on bringing out the best of both organizations by way of processes, approach to work, and service offerings to customers. There is an initiative in place to help employees who are used to the short term quarterly way of thinking to the longer term strategic vision that Attachmate wants to strengthen. The emphasis now is on the value offered to the company's customers instead of the shareholders.

Attachmate benefits include what may be considered a standard package with insurance offerings, flexible time off, and potential annual bonuses. The company does their bonus pool more as a revenue share program than specifically targeted around performance. This seems to indicate that the company has a greater focus on the team aspect of projects and work efforts. Additional benefits include health club memberships or access to onsite facilities for overall health and well-being and may vary slightly with location.
