How is management perceived at Quick Release?

Pros

I have been with QR for the best part of a decade and haven't stopped learning since my first day. The company has kept pace with my ambition in terms of growth, diversification and performance levels. We truly are industry leading in our work and are gaining more recognition from some of the most respected people in the business, as well as formal awards from independent bodies. Our work ranges from hands-on data management, system & toolset development through to advisory work, with everything in between. Our approach is always detailed oriented and the company is built on a firm platform of core understanding, meaning that we are able to interpret and describe complex problems before recommending and implementing a solution in partnership with our clients. By far the best thing about QR is working with some of the best people you will ever meet - all employees are encouraging, friendly and driven. This leads to a working environment that is both welcoming to the new starters and supportive to those moving through the levels. Recently we have been working hard on employee wellbeing and ED&I, run by people within the company at all levels to achieve something that works for us.

Cons

Due to our growth, there has been an element of reinventing the wheel a few times in terms of internal process change. The progression to competing with the big consultancies is still in process, which can lead to high achievers reaching a plateau before moving into higher-value work. Work life-balance can easily creep the wrong way - important to note this is never expected but is usually due to the character of the employees.

Is Quick Release a good company to work for?

Pros

The main reason to work for QR is the industry experience you gain, you will be able to put some high profile clients on your CV. Most people leave after 1-2 years once they've got enough experience to get a better job. The culture at QR is one of the biggest pros about the company, I've met some amazing people here! There are always after work drinks and socials happening, so you will make friends fairly quickly. That being said, socials often get out of control there have been numerous incidents involving senior managers/ directors..you will hear all the stories in your first few weeks.

Cons

1. If you are lucky, you may get the chance to work on some really exciting projects. However, you will have to learn absolutely everything on the job. QR will sell you to their clients as a 'specialist' even if this is your first ever job. You will have to learn everything by yourself as management offer 0 support (and quite frankly, most of them are clueless half the time too). 2. If you are unlucky (which nowadays is most of the time), you will be given a project that consist of you copying/pasting, 'chasing' people all day or any other manual task that engineers would rather pay someone to do for them. You'll be not only bored but you'll also develop/ learn no new skills whatsoever. Clients often refer to us as 'admin resource' which is quite sad. 3. The company is still very small, so there is no opportunities for formal training (i.e. anything they have to pay for), so if you would like to develop professionally better look somewhere else. 4. Promotion/ progression - the people that get ahead are the ones that management likes. Most people join the company to become consultants, but these opportunities present themselves very rarely (less than once a year) and even then only 1-3 people get promoted. Overall, if you have an offer from a different company I would advise you to consider taking it.

Advice to Management

Start listening to your employees and address the core issues within the company, otherwise people will continue leaving.
