Very Loose management styles.
Good work life balance encouraged.

Cons

Lack of knowledge shared among workers.
Lack of management presence to guide workflows
Somewhat static positions long wait times to move positions with in the firm

Advice to Management

Foster an environment where workers can assemble and solve work related problems that they are intriniscally excited about. There are aspects of the industry that can be more exciting to work on but are unaccessible for a given position to contribute to those solutions.

    Pros

    1. Quickly obtain high levels of responsibility
    2. Merit based promotions and pay raise. Overall, competitive pay
    3. Few work politics
    4. Quorum is gaining market share in the Upstream area. Already industry leader in Land and Midstream

    Cons

    1. Growing company leaves areas for improvement. On the flip side, there is no large amounts of red tape or hoops to jump through to do your own job.
    2. In 2014, Quorum was overloaded with new deals. this is tough in the short term, but great in the long term

    Note: many of the reviews on here seem to be from individuals who have never had experience in the real world. If you are complaining about 50 hour weeks, you should go get a government job, and not be looking to be a consultant. Company wide, the hours average to about 9 hours a day. Good luck finding anything cushier at the Big Four.

    Advice to Management

    1. Improve recruiting to prevent the hiring of unmotivated individuals who are afraid of being committed to their job.
    2. Be more strategic with clients to ensure long-term client relationships
    3. Focus on retention of good employees
    4. Emphasize more company culture so that young employees are able to better identify with their career

    Pros

    - For most majors, good salary first your first job out of school
    - Generous amount of vacation/sick days
    - Yearly raises
    - Bonuses given to majority of employees
    - Very friendly, intelligent, and young group of employees
    - Great way to learn the industry if you are placed in the delivery organization
    - Work schedule can potentially be flexible, depending on assignment
    - Four week paid technical training for new hires
    - Opportunities to take on more responsibility and roles that typically would require more experience
    - Strong middle management

    Cons

    - High turnover and top performers leaving for other jobs is a common theme
    - Projects tend to be understaffed causing employees to be overworked
    - Benefits package outside of PTO/Salary is mediocre
    - Large learning curve for some of the products
    - Poor communication and collaboration across vertical groups
    - Non-existent company culture
    - Experience is largely product based and may not be applicable outside of Quorum
    - Billing 45 hours/week can be stressful for new hires
    - Travel time is not billable
    - Little-to-no training offered after the new hire training class
    - Weak upper management

    Advice to Management

    Clearly Quorum values margins over their employees and the quality of the products. Low release budgets, not retaining valuable employees, and overselling projects may be a viable shot-term strategy to maximize profits, but the products suffer as a result. Upper management needs to realize that their employees, not the products, are their most valuable resources.
