I worked at Questar Assessment full-timePros
I'm drawing a blank from my personal experience. I heard that they have a lounge now, so that's like totally cool.Cons
I had to wait a while to try writing this review after reading Glassdoor's policy against ranting and venting. I needed months out of the turmoil to get my head straight and find a way to write a review that is 100% a truthful accounting of MY personal experience.
I went from a job I really liked with a team that I enjoyed to the worst job I've had in my career within two months of the CEO's appointment of my new department head. We went from being led by people who really understood our processes and the time required for successful work to people who wanted to throw garbage at every opportunity. The amount of work they expected on an on-going basis was beyond out of control and everyone on my team was struggling to make it day-to-day. We all voiced the immediate need for more staff to keep up with the dramatically increased demand and were told in no uncertain terms that we would need to suck it up.
But it turns out that I didn't need to suck it up. I needed to leave. And it's not because I wasn't dedicated. I worked holidays and weekends, and was online in the middle of the night trying to make it work. So, to those reviewers who claim to be good eggs, I'm not a bad egg...I'm just smart enough to realize that no job is worth being as miserable as Questar made me.
One more thing -- before things got to the breaking point, we were instructed (through trickle down messaging, so it never came to us from the lips of the CEO herself) that we should all be writing glowing reviews of the company on Questar. I sort of think that maybe just making the company a better place to work would have had the same end result. Instead, the rating has gone down and down and down.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Any advice I could offer up would fall on deaf ears. Management DOES NOT CARE about what former or, from all evidence, current employees think about their methods and the environment that they are creating. And that really is a shame.Doesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
