    I have been working at Qualys full-time (more than an year)


    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


    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

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Qualys in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted after applying for one of their jobs. They started out with a phone interview, then scheduled an in person interview. I went through 6 or 7 people and ended with 2 coding challenges and 1 database challenge (this was for a database related development position).

    The CTO was cool, the interviewer was very professional, the coding challenges mostly related to the work. I'm glad I went through the process.
