    Great people to work with, and they seem to care about their employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Spartanburg, SC

    ProsQS/1 offers low cost benefits to employees as well as an excellent profit sharing program. Management seems to genuinely care about their employees future.

    ConsParking is based on seniority, and people seem to stick around. Plan to walk uphill both ways in the snow as a new employee.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    QS/1 is good for the area

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFor the area the corporate office is located, it is a good company. The pay is average to above average. The benefits are average to above average. Stock options available. 401k is awesome.

    ConsFor a technology company, they are years behind. With the money the company makes, they could be cutting edge in the pharmacy software area again, but it would appear they have gotten fat and happy waiting on retirement. They are still riding on the back of the genius, Mr. Smith, that started the company. They need a modern Mr. Smith to spark a new era of innovation and inspiration.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at the buddy system and nepotism there. I know the corporate world is a lot about "who you know", but you pass up a lot of high potential employees for somebody's golf buddy, cousin, nephew, in-law, spouse, child, etc. Hiring or promoting those people are fine as long as they are computer savvy people that will bring something to the workplace, not take away from it. Re-evaluate who you have working there. If they cannot tell you what version of Windows they are running or figure out how to navigate within a new operating system, trim the fat and get people in there that do know how. You have a knee high stack of resumes of people in the area waiting for a chance to shine.

    Awful Company

    Programmer II (Former Employee) Spartanburg, SC

    Prosthe company contributes cash to your retirement account without you having to contribute. The amount of contribution is 15% of your salary.

    ConsAwful, awful engineering company. It uses a completely stagnant technology stack (based on ancient technology that they have kept alive through several layers of hacky emulation). It is where skills sets go to die. The only reason people work there is that it is the only programming game in town.

    Incompetent management from bottom to top. Amazing awful executives when I worked there. Some only have their positions from nepotism with the CEO (high school GEDs managed all of Engineering at the time).

    The management took pride in showing visitors the Support Floor -- over one hundred people screaming into telephones like the floor of a stock market. They never understood that if your software was really good, you would only need 5 really bored guys in a call center who do nothing all day...

    Advice to Senior Managementrearchitect the code from the ground up. fire 70% of your programmers. It does not take hundreds of people to code what you are trying to code.

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

    Solid company overall, low turnover, frequent management changes

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Spartanburg, SC

    ProsOne of few stable companies in the healthcare industry with little to no debt. Very good benefits package.

    ConsHome grown platform that hinders the company from keeping pace with competitors. Frequent management changes.

    QS/1 is a good company to work for with financial security.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Spartanburg, SC

    ProsBenefit package, primarily the retirement package was outstanding.

    ConsUpper Management appears content with status quo and resting on past sucess.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay closer attention to your competitors and relaize that they are gaining marketshare with a percentage coming from your existing user base. The cost to switch per claim in not competive to the marketplace. When pharmacies are gauging cost they are looking at total cost. Software maint. is higher than average. Many of the independants view their pharmacy system as equal to the others on the marketplace and the primary interest in changing vendors is based on total cost of ownership.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
