    Pros

    Very good at maintaining the relationships and recruiters are very responsive.

    Cons

    Nothing that reflects the company, but at the client's site, the management did not make it a pleasant work experience.

    Pros

    The CEO has a very strong work ethic and focus. He has a vision that seems right and sells it well.

    Cons

    The vision and it's meaningfulness stops with the CEO. While I was there it was not lived out by any employee. The CEO wanted to focus on training and growth, but the training that I went through was the worst I've ever had in my career. I learned much more from a co-worker that is still there and rocks her job. The management I worked under at the time of my employment is no longer there and I believe that was an excellent move. He obviously didn't know what he was doing and balked at me when I reached out to the CEO who was very friendly and helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the CEO is doing what he can to move into the direction of his vision. I would just suggest that he get more buy in from individuals and not settle for people who talk a good game, but obviously don't follow or contribute.

    I worked at Q Analysts full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work with Fortune 500 companies such as Amazon, Starbucks, Kaiser, AT&T
    Specialize in recruiting a technical skill set

    Cons

    Incredibly low pay. Bonuses are not sufficient. Expect to live off of your base. You have to be promoted several times before you can hope to have a decent bonus. There is no set criteria for promotions.
    Controlling management. Management will tell you what a great company they are, then act like you aren't good enough for them. They act like they own you and micromanage every detail of your personal and professional life.
    Drama filled coworkers.
    Poor working hours
    Health benefits are terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees a reason to be invested in the company. Pay them what they are worth. Give them the flexibility they need to have a decent work life balance. Be willing to listen to employee feedback sooner. Realize there is turn over for a reason.

    I worked at Q Analysts full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Technology practice focus - delivers superior value to both their clients and consultants. A clear vision has enabled them to build internal competencies to support the vision. This means a heavy emphasis on training and continued learning.

    Long-term view of client and consultant relationships - the emphasis is on doing the right things.

    Infrastructure and processes are fairly advanced for a company this size. Should be scalable.

    Clients are awesome.

    Cons

    They try hard to hire great people and have had success. But it takes time to find and develop the talent.

    The upfront training on systems and process is extensive as would be expected given the importance they place on process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course to build a company the truly specialized on specific technologies. This enables you to obtain a level of mastery that will trump your competition strategically and tactically.
