    Pros

    I would have to say the global culture is instilled the moment you become a QuESTian, and have enjoyed the experience of multi-national working.

    Cons

    New services are difficult to deliver across multiple sites, a key to success is to build the strength across global sites and this means a certain amount of burning candles at both ends!

    Advice to Management

    Growth is going to arrive when you embrace the opportunities in all of the talented people you have in QuEST-Global, just don't miss great innovation or options because you have tried it before and it didn't work.

    Pros

    Co workers are very sharp people. From engineer to executive, the team is clean, deliberate and successful.
     A model for a successful engineering services firm.

    Cons

    Too much competition in the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Rapid successful growth has created growing pains throughout the back office support organizations. Correct the issues before it is too late.

    Pros

    Very lately I found there is nothing as such...

    Cons

    As mentioned in d title,
    1. Joining this company.
    2.Previously wrote a positive review and referred few of my friends & hence misleaded others.
    3. Did believe this company will help in growth and so rejected few offers.

    At first I thought it was OK but now i found no good reason to work and so initiated resignation and now in 3 month notice period. Now each & every day facing torture. Even HR knows this & they don't care.

    Worst part is that I have worked very hardly without any benefits or recognition and still they do this cruelty to me.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't torture employees who are in notice period. You may need them at some point later and this attitude towards them will make them reject your company permanently.

    Pros

    May be friendly colleagues...
    If u r jobless then OK for a short term job (6 months-1yr) but not ok for a making a long term career...

    Cons

    Salary & growth almost stagnant...
    Cheating by false promises such as onsite (I was taken 4 onsite work & hence accepted less package but they didn't send me)...
    Not a fair HR dept & policies...
    Lot of Politics...

    Advice to Management

    No comments... They don't listen to whatever u say even if it benefits both employer and employees...

    Employees will treat u in d same way as u treat them....

    Pros

    If you sacrifice your personal life and sacrifice your expectations on salary you can tolerate the tremendous stress they keep then as it is growing organization you may find something to grow.

    Cons

    Everything is a con about this company.. lemme tell you one by one..
    > 9.30 hr is mandatory.. your each and every minute recorded in tool.. dont think juss bein 9.30 hr b/w login and log out is enough.. its diff here.. if you swipe out once then you need to swipe in with in an hour if the clock ticks one minute more than an hour then your one hour time will be cut from your login timings..
    > First year you will have only 12 paid leaves.. once you serve one year you will have 25 leaves all paid and can be encashed.. you can not avail more than 7 comoff's an year..
    > HR never responds to your issues.. they are just paper tiger.. i asked for a HR letter before 2 months and till now they did not respond to my email or a IT ticket i raised.. but they are good at making crookerd employee policies..
    > it's not over yet.. it's even ok to bear above all facts but this one is awsome.. if there is a compensation day for any strike then its your responsibility to speak to client to give you wrk load & billing.. ha ha.. isnt it ridiculous..
    > They will make you do some 50 hrs courses .. mine is 75 hrs.. and there will be a exam called QCA in which they ask all technology JAVA, Electrical, DATA STAX, DB related questions no matter on which yo are having handson and you need to pass this one.. else you are not eligible for promotion.. bingo..
    > Hygeine is not at all there in company.. forget about temp control.. if you say to increase the temp they say its std.. they can only switch it on or off.. i got infections in my resp system bcos of these..
     > i could not find anything such as employee benefit here.. and yeah contractors and freshers and bench guys its not std comapany today you will come tom you might not..
    > ok yeah last and very important thing.. they make alot of false promises about the package and also the increments while recruiting.. see draft offer carefully.. they include even shift allowances in offer.. i dunno which company mentions it in offer and finally your take home is very less.. forget about bonuses and all there is nothing such..

    Advice to Management

    Guys you need to change a few things.. please understand employees are assets.. IT world is small..
