    I worked at Quark full-time

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Some 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.

    Pros

    Travel, 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No more top-down management. Listen to those on the front line who actually TALK to the customers

    Pros

    1. 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.

    1. Still trying to break even and that is visible during salary hikes.

    3. Pathetic gym - not managed by the company but by the facility owner QUARKCITY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please 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.
