What is working from home like at Quick Release?

Pros

QR really prides itself on having a great company culture and it really shows in how they interact with you as a new employee. I felt like a great addition to the team from day one, feeling valued and included. It is a great starting position for a recent graduate!

Cons

Some projects demand more work from you than others, be prepared to put in a hard graft

Advice to Management

Look into the pay-scales and how the levels better reflect the quality of work done

How is the work/life balance 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.

What is overtime like at Quick Release?

Pros

Great company culture, exposure to very senior employees within Quick Release and client companies, project and location rotation is easy if wanted

Cons

Work days 8-5 with no flexi-time or overtime, pressured into doing more work even if you're busy as it's a small company so each person is required to contribute more

How are flexible working hours at Quick Release?

Pros

Getting to work with large automotive clients Smart people from great universities Fun socials

Cons

Management are inexperienced and selected based on who the business unit leaders like rather than being deserving of role. Analysts sold to clients as experts when we have never even heard the topics Made redundant some great people while keeping people much worse and with no experience because they won't comment on negatives 0 training - all boot camp is, is people getting drunk for 3 weeks and pretending to learn something. This money could be much better used for training budget for employees. Projects are usually very basic, copy-paste kinds, data based, where there is no thinking required and you're just becoming a machine No progression after Senior No work flexibility at all Required to move where clients are permanently with long distances (such as from Birmingham to Bath) and they make you share a house with people from the company, not even put you in a hotel. If you say no they consider you a difficult person. Project managers have 0 time or idea about the projects they're managing because they have to do their own projects so essentially they're useless when searching for advice. Extremely unprofessional behaviour at social events including from board level - being inappropriate to women etc. Honestly just find somewhere else to work.

Advice to Management

Everything in cons must be looked at

No work flexibility at all
