    Pros

    Lot's of exposure to the energy sector. Learned a lot and hard workers tend to move up faster. Good compensation with young high energy culture.

    Cons

    Long hours, but this was expected. Inconsistent guidance from upper management. Different groups have different motives and goals, and often conflict with each other.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, especially the ones that you value the most. Don't make empty promises, and align goals for all departments.

    Pros

    Good pay, upward mobility, young work environment, a lot of good experience.

    Cons

    Can be impossible to get help. When on a project people will just ignore you. Company over promises so we always look real bad to the client. Quorum takes on way too many jobs, stretching everybody thin. Upper management not grown in Quorum are under qualified, creating a mess in upstream. Worst HR team ever, isn't helpful at all...

    Advice to Management

    Please fix upstream. Stop selling functionality that doesn't work and making enhancements when the core product is broken. Hire an HR team that looks out for the employees.

    Pros

    This job will build your work ethic and increase your experience level and confidence three fold, in comparison with another company. You will learn so much, I think most college grads would benefit from starting at a place like this.

    Cons

    Leadership is a bit distant, and the benefits are substandard. Turnover rate is a bit high, but it's relatively expected with such a challenging job.

    Advice to Management

    Beef up the benefits and have more executive to employee interaction. Turnover will reduce with these changes alone.

    Pros

    Move up quickly, ability to learn multiple areas, oil and gas is a solid industry, quorum has a successful implementation strategy with aggressive timelines and aggressive clients.

    Cons

    Retention at Quorum is low. They do not try to keep employees who quick. not all clients are easy to work with. The projects can become frustrating, upper management is worried about budgets and not you since they are owned by a private equity firm.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to change the way they pay people, keep people, develop new employees, and recognize those that contribute the most at the company.

    Pros

    As a college hire I was given training in cpp and sql development, skills that have served well with subsequent employers. I enjoyed the people I worked with and learned great project planning skills. Benefits were also great.

    Cons

    After working a Quorum for several years I realized that there is little chance for advancement past the senior consultant / manager level.

    Pros

    Good environment to learn technical side of oil and gas software
