The environment at Qualys is toxic to say it politely. The Management is the root cause of this. They are squashed by the CEO every week and berated for not being as "perfect" as he is. This then causes other managers to throw other colleagues under the bus in hopes of not being blamed for poor performance. Also, there is a huge problem with Nepotism here. You'll end up either reporting or managing a "family member" of the CEO. They often times are not hard workers. If they do not like you for any reason, you will be on the CEO's bad side. In short, they have a great product, but a micro manager of a CEO who creates the negative environment. Not a healthy place for advancement or work life balance.
