Pros

Easy and fast induction program. IT support is great. Good to work here, but just for career development

Cons

They do not diversify, just provide services to GE energy. Management is not communicating well and their quality program is just being implemented with efforts.

Advice to Management

Improve communication with employees.

    As with any contract company, it's a revolving door

    Pros

    Projects are interesting and challenging Work with commerical softwares Good place to gain experience and then go where the grass is greener Benefits are descent

    Cons

    Not an American company, HQ based in Singapore Inability to retain and acquire talent HR does not post job openings to get experienced engineering, sends emails to entice us to look for talent for them Always acquiring "freshers", engineers fresh out of college Experienced engineers then must teach and accelerate the learning curve for the "freshers" Training is frowned upon because it affects the applied ratio Basically we're just programmed robots to essentially do similar jobs all the time Profit driven managers Yearly assesment is based on KRA's where a spreadsheet keeps track of your projects Spreadsheet is only as useful if your manager completes it as you complete your projects, since spreadsheet is password protected and read-only engineer can't really utilize it. Promotion of incompetent engineers to team leads/project managers Poor decision making from senior management Organization stucture constantly changes Some managers do not communicate efficiently and can be condescending, rude, and back-stabbing Center manager seems to not be concentrating on the entire center, but rather still wants to do his old job Some managers are afraid to communicate with the customer. A question that should be a couple minute phone call or webex turns into a elaborate presentation that doesn't get sent to the customer, but ends up being shown during the weekly status meeting. Not only has time and money been wasted, at the end the engineer gets the blame not the project leader/manager. Some project leaders can't think for themselves, they need a buddy "tied" to their side Inability of some team leaders/project managers to utilize experienced engineers to sit in on important internal or customer meetings. Retaliation in some situations

    Advice to Management

    Some managers need to resign or be fired cause it is obvious they aren't trained to do their job

    The turnover rate is extremely high at QuEST due to low pay and lack of support from Management

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you want an environment where your managers at QuEST are unaware of the type of work that your job supporting Pratt and Whitney entails then this is the company for you !

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on meeting QuEST metrice - uploading your status reports, providing QuEST manangement with cost savings opportunities and not enough emphasis on how you actually perform your job in the eyes of the customer, who is a division of UTC.

    Advice to Management

    Take a serious look at the metrics you use to rate your employee performance and hold on to talented employees by paying them a greater percentage of the billable rate.
