    Pros

    Training is extensive and adequate. Everyone is extremely helpful, from the CEO to the Receptionist. Wonderful kitchen available, with dishwasher, dishes, utensils, glasses, refrigerators, microwave, sink, plus coffee for everyone to use (free of charge). Employee events/culture is fantastic. A great, mostly young group of people to work with. TVs in break room provide a mid-day stress reliever, if needed. Relaxed dress code. Excellent benefits. Technology is on the cutting edge. IT staff is incredibly helpful and easily accessible. Ops is amazing! I can't say enough about working at Qualigence!

    Cons

    Home-work balance is a bit lacking. Despite the advanced technology available, most employees are unable to work from home. The entire company works a mandatory 8a-5p schedule, with most employees working over 40 hours per week (either early mornings, or late nights). Pay for the Ops department and researchers especially is a bit lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Giving employees the access to work from home (even a couple days a week) will create a much happier staff. Those staff members with chronic illnesses or especially those with kids would greatly benefit from being able to work from home. The CEO needs to connect more with those he doesn't work directly with. He is the final decision maker on most decisions within the company and, therefore, needs to be more attuned to what his employees' needs are. Qualigence has lost very valuable employees because they were either underpaid or were unable to find a sufficient home/work balance. Senior management are always approachable and friendly, as well as helpful. They do work with you to make up any hours missed (for doctor's appointments, kid's events, etc.). However, they do need to communicate more with the CEO on behalf of their staff. When they either sense or have been told directly that an employee is having trouble balancing work with home, they need to step up and talk to the CEO to try and work something out for their most valuable staff members.

    Pros

    A chance to learn the business and a decent salary of you are entry level.

    Cons

    Micromanaged from top down. Very little trust and little opportunity to advance into a position with true decision making opportunity. Bonus opportunity dangled like a carrot which is rarely paid. CEO sends wrong message to employees by wearing custom suits and driving a new luxury car every other week and then somehow finds a reason that bonuses won't be paid that quarter or year. Even average employees, as long as they are effective and productive, generate many multiples of what they are paid, so even a 20% bonus would barely touch the bottom line revenues, but greatly incentivize them for a job well done in a very difficult field.

    Advice to Management

    Empower the employees that are capable, reward everyone when they produce results, and trust them.
