    Just like the movie OfficeSpace. Except in real life it's not funny. Would not recommend.

    Pros

    - Relatively easy to get a job here.
    - Some of the projects can be interesting.
    - May see some cutting edge technology being developed.
    - Flexible hours.
    - Larger office with more people to socialize with.
    - Good resume builder.
    - Good equipment to work with (nice computer, dual monitors, local and network cluster, etc.)
    - Spacious cubicles.
    - Benefits are about average.
    - Vacation relatively easy to take.

    Cons

    Biggest down side- there are a lot of down sides.
    The work itself:
    - Can get very repetitive (turbine blades all look the same).
    - Analysis only job: customer does the design, you plug it in and show them the results.
    - Work breakdown: 50% PowerPoint creation, 30% filling out forms/checklists/reviews, 20% engineering
    - Collaboration, teamwork, and knowledge expansion is mostly frowned upon.

    Company:
    - Contract-based company: every hour worked must be billed or you won't be paid. If work goes over budget (due to poor leadership, organisation, customer interaction, etc.) engineers are still expected to catch up (unpaid) on work.
    - Budget for training is non-existent.
    - Pay is very low when comparing experience/degree with other similar positions.
    - Structure, titles, organization frequently changes.
    - Company is largely run by India. Excessive grammatically incorrect communications of all mediums is sent to the employees.
    - HR communication is poor; any request takes over a week before a reply is received, as everything must route through an Indian representative.

    Other:
    - Company morals/ethics very low. Managers are profit driven and will put deadlines/customer demands above all morals. Quality of work suffers and mistakes are frequently encountered.
    - Managers have no management background and perform interpersonal duties poorly. Most managers at Quest are Aero-thermal/Project Engineers that have reached the "length of service required" to be a manager, and are therefore promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is very poor and senior management seems oblivious to what happens "in the trenches."
    One would think that seeing so many people leave and having such low scores on employee "engagement" that something is awry.

    Pros

    Flexibility of hours
    Nice people/work enviornment

    Cons

    Quality of work ethic is lacking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limit team lead SOWs to a max of 30hrs a week so they have time to manage their team adequately
