    Great culture, and challenging

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat technology and opportunities for learning new skills. The culture was fun and the people are pretty great. Compensation and benefits were good, and just an overall good place to work.

    ConsSome of the teams historically promoted a hero culture, so a few people had an inordinate amount of influence based on outmoded thinking and this really held back greatness.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Fun place but, too much turnover

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTravel, excellent benefits and fun, educated, creative intelligent people. Meet people from all over the world. It is a dynamic environment with training for everything. Up-to-date methods worked well.

    ConsToo many managers and they don't listen to the workers. Too much turnover. No place to be promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo more top-down management. Listen to those on the front line who actually TALK to the customers

    My experience at Quark was wow until rotational shifts were not introduced

    Engineer II - R&D Support (Former Employee) Chandigarh (India)

    Pros1. Fixed salary - no variable component.
    2. Nice and helping people.
    3. As it is in Mohali, Punjab, you will find some punjabi culture at workplace.
    4. Gratuity after 1 year of work.
    5. Subsidised lunch for employees.
    6. It is a product based company and offers great learning experience to developers.
    7. Good swimming pool.

    Cons1. Still trying to break even and that is visible during salary hikes.
    2. Will ask you leave as soon as you are not required.
    3. Pathetic gym - not managed by the company but by the facility owner QUARKCITY.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease act on feedback forms. Don't just take them and throw them. When leaders are to be chosen, look for the ones whose leadership traits sub-ordinates look to acquire.
