"It's a great company with great environment, culture and growth. I can say that this is the perfect place for whoever wants to build a career from the start."

"I worked with Quest Software from Oct 2019 to present. I wouldn't say it has been a positive experience, there was major shifts in leadership that threw off the company dynamics. The sales teams are run poorly and the upper management only cares about money and they will do what ever to get it."

Lead UI Designer
in Aliso Viejo, CA

"I worked for Quest Software since May 2005. I joined the company as a junior designer and was promoted to a senior designer within a year. In 2012 we were purchased by Michael Dell and our software company became part of Dell.com. In 2016, we were sold to Francisco Partners, an American private equity firm focused exclusively on investments in technology and technology-enabled services. I was very happy working at Quest and felt the job life balance was great and there was room for getting promoted and learning new technology. In the past year of my job, I felt that the company was only focused on making money and kept cutting costs within operations to save money. Our company went through many layoffs and ultimately my design team was cut in California to save money and move operations to Ohio."

"Overall, I had a good experience working at Quest Software for the last 5 years. I transitioned from being a UI developer to a UI/UX designer and the team supported me to make the move within the company. It has a flexible work environment in terms of working hours since most of the employees are remote. However, things have become hectic since the acquisition. The company went through many lay-offs and started to downsize tremendously."

"I worked for Quest Software from Oct 2004 – Feb 2015. I found the experience challenging and fulfilling. Flexible working hours allowed me to provide 24/7/52 availability to distributed teams around the world and I am glad to say I met folks there with whom I formed lifelong friendships. There were not many opportunities for advancement in my division, but overall it was a great place to work."
