Top Heavy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Health Quest full-time

ProsGreat benefits. Excellent admin, mid - level IT and Analyst employees.

ConsManagement mostly greedy consultants without buy-in. Multiple bosses with conflicting ideas delegating an impossible workload. CIO is not afraid to use the F word to employees and upper management are "yes" men. Little consideration for personal responsibilities - will schedule 5:30 meetings at 4:30. Take an extremely long time to process and reimburse expense reports. This list could go on......

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your people well and they will respect and work hard for you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Poughkeepsie, NY

You will not move up at this company.

IT Department (Current Employee)
Poughkeepsie, NY

I have been working at Health Quest

ProsThey pay you money, somewhat flexible hours.

There's literally just not enough pros to write Glassdoor.com's 20 word minimum, sorry.

ConsThey don't pay you much money.
They don't tell you information necessary to do your job.
You will be reprimanded for not knowing information about your job they refuse to tell you.
Hours are very long. (10 hours or longer should be expected. My shortest shift ever was 9.5 hours)
If you work on the lower end of the spectrum you will be routinely disrespected by everyone. This is expected. They purposely make social classes within the company and you will be treated based on your class.
Favoritism. So much favoritism.
Upward mobility is non-existent.
You will be given conflicting instructions from management making it impossible to do your job.

I would go on but I think I've made my point.

Advice to Senior ManagementRespect your employees and consider that maybe you are the problem. You don't tell your employees essential information and then reprimand them and take away privileges for them not knowing these things. (Privileges such as using your cell phone at work) You somehow think this will make them work better. All you do is destroy what little motivation the workforce has by punishing them for your mistakes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
