Not the worst place to work, but upper management won't be able to sustain the company long term

    Pros

    About the only "pro" (if you can call it that) to working for QNA is that you can share by on a minimum amount of work if you want to. If you're related to someone in your leadership (sic) structure, you'll do OK.

    Cons

    Used to be a good company to work for. Quickly went downhill. Benefits got slashed, morale took a dive, and promotions and raises became rare as hen's teeth. Yet somehow, after saying there's no money for raises, they hire half a dozen bodies to occupy seats. Half my leads spent their day either running their own side businesses or hawking their religion books. If you're an enthusiastic, hard working engineer wanting a challenging, rewarding career, look somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow Michael Dell's advice to Steve Jobs: shut it down and give the money back to the stockholders. That might be the only thing that you'll have done right in a long time.

    Pros

    Pay and usually annual bonus. However, in 2013 annual merit pay was not given company wide.

    Cons

    No personal growth. I enrolled into ITT Tech and had to drop out because my work took over my evening hours.
