How is the work/life balance at Quick Release?

Pros

You'll learn a lot, and quickly, especially as you progress through the business. This was traditionally on-the-job through those who have invariably seen a lot before, but there is now a big focus on structured L&D as well. Covid aside, there's opportunities to travel and potentially relocate if flexible. Office are invariably decent cities - either genuinely pleasant, or at least "interesting". The whole "team spirit" and "culture" thing is often put around by employers, but QR do a remarkable job of selecting people who are simultaneously very competent, a good laugh and very helpful and generous with their time.

Cons

The younger demographics in the company combined with rapid growth sometimes lead to long hours and a lot of activities outside of one's core area of responsibilities; flip side of this is it adds variety and they're pretty good at TOIL arrangements.

Advice to Management

Keep at it - lot of stuff moving in the right direction without compromising what make QR what it is

What is overtime like at Quick Release?

Pros

You will not find a company more open and supportive of furthering your personal development. Frequent Udemy course deals, constant knowledge sharing, full development budget and an open mind to all sorts of directions of growing your skills highlight QR's excellent dev focus.

Cons

If you are not part of the local management team's favorites you will not be in a position to advance in the company. You will be removed from or turned down on opportunities in favor of those who play themselves up to management - the method of progression is essentially a mating dance where the employee puffs themselves and brags about themselves until someone decides to throw them more money - and there is no room for employees who don't play by those guidelines. There is a company culture policy that they do not acknowledge or reward overtime work as to not pressure employees to stay over the 40 hour mark, but all employees are expected to work well more than that as the contracted expectations of the client often require more in the 60-70 hour range.

Does Quick Release reimburse for mileage?

Pros

Easy Money. There’s nothing analytical about verifying car parts with engineers. Blows my mind why car companies don’t pay new grads $12 an hour to do this.

Cons

They drink too much. It’s literally a frat. If you don’t go out and drink with them on Tuesday afternoons they take notice and it affects your professional development.

What do employees say about the location of the Quick Release office?

Pros

Great culture overall, even though it can fluctuate. The management has their heart in the right place. Great internal support network for work tasks. A lot of flexibility if you want to pursue additional activities (you have to manage your time though)

Cons

After reaching Senior level it is becoming very stagnant. Only progression route (careerwise and salarywise) is becoming a manager. Lateral movement careerwise almost definitely means a location change. It sometimes feels very cliquey.

Advice to Management

Re-evaluate monetary compensation for Senior members. Make the management teams more diverse.

Lateral movement careerwise almost definitely means a location change.
