Does QuantumBlack offer massages?

Pros

Free food, round the clock snacks, drinks. Training opportunities and travel

Cons

No office culture guides those who work there. Company hires a lot and just throws 'em together; cultural gap and lack of sense of organization leaves the local office at the hands of whoever feels entitled . "stringent interview"process applies to outside applicants while most there have taken the easy route. Leadership lacks diversity in visibly influential and decision making roles.

Advice to Management

Don't let company growth take priority over organizational structure

Free food, round the clock snacks, drinks.
