    I have been working at QED Group LLC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    QED is a family friendly place with HR policies that support a balanced work life. As the company is growing and going through change, the management team communicates openly with employees to let them know how things are coming along. It is great to be kept in the loop because change can be uncomfortable sometimes. Overall it is great working with the company through the challenges and having a hand in how things evolve. Management is very appreciative of employee efforts too.

    Cons

    As the company grows challenges increase, but with constant communications flowing between management and employees it helps employees keep perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While employees may not always understand the decisions made by management, we trust that you are making the decision for all employees. We appreciate you sharing information with us.

    Pros

    Small company with decent benefits, opportunities for community engagement, opportunities to grow company feel good. Owner believes in many good causes.

    Cons

    Totally nepotistic, unable to deal with bad leadership at the expense of mid and lower level staff (all expendable, replaceable). Lots of perks for the clique of leadership but poor ability to create stability for staff. No sense of how to grow in the ranks. Lack of transparency. Staff generally seen as throw away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company values work-life balance and benefits for leadership at expense of staff. Need to develop effective strategy for what they do. Seems unlikely they care why anyone leaves or the lack of opportunity for anyone below director level.

    Pros

    Friendly and capable coworkers, but the recent turnover has been extremely high (understandably so). Company current has a couple interesting projects.

    Cons

    Disorganized processes and minimal investment in resources to do your job. Erratic workload with people leaving so frequently. Tense work environment and unprofessional conduct in meetings by some senior management. Talk of professional development opportunities never materializes. Poor salaries and benefits, no sick days. Executive team makes decisions on a whim with little transparency, staff are losing trust, inefficient HR doesn't help matters.

    I have been working at QED Group LLC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small enough for learning the whole aspect of the business. Good mid and junior level people to work with. Not far from two Metro stops and close to everything downtown.

    Cons

    No work life balance, no personal growth, no leadership, no accountability from the senior employees. Huge turnover throughout the mid and junior level of the organization. The owner is out to lunch and has rose colered glasses and the leadership which she selected is running her organization to the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without good employees, an organization will never be successful. The owner and senior manager needs to stop being in denial about the health of the organization and reinvent themselves. If they don't, the situation will only get worse. Wake up and smell the coffee before it is too late.

    Pros

    Great senior management.
    Congenial atmosphere
    Decent salary (for interns at least)
    Employees have access to tools to guarantee success
    Lots of opportunity to learn new things

    Cons

    This company needs to take greater advantage of its in-house personnel. Not much promotion from within, seem to much rather hire outsiders.

    I have been working at QED Group LLC

    Pros

    this company is growing from small buisness to medium business and they have a very friendly atmosphere within the company

    Cons

    the company has not adjusted to managing growth. its a very hierarchical structure, and no teamwork collaboration is encouraged. QED's evaluation system is inadequate. it evaluates its team leaders around the world through HQ office, while it is supposed to take in the feedback of its project staff to figure out how the team leader has performed in relation to the work and the team. It often uses personal relations when dealing with mishaps rather than professionalism, and does not stand its grounds when wrong is being done right under their noses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create a teamwork environment from top down
