    Not a fulfilling career

    Former Employee - Account Executive in Pennsauken, NJ
    Former Employee - Account Executive in Pennsauken, NJ

    I worked at Quadriga Art full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quadriga Art provides their employees with opportunities to travel to visit clients. The company organizes events to celebrate holidays - annual Christmas party, July 4th BBQ, and offers flex time (summer hours) in the summer months.

    Cons

    No support from management when things go wrong; too many managers; always worried about making a mistake...biggest motivation is to work hard and long enough to avoid making a mistake; poor health care plan

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to support their employees by providing opportunities for growth and more challenging projects; to support their staff when mistakes happen. When employees are given promotions their salaries should be inflated to reflect the promotion and new responsibilities.

    Qdmh Marketing Partners is a family of companies that are turning around after a rough 2011 merger.

    Pros

    Owned and operated by a great family who really care about the business and want to make it a great place to work.

    Cons

    They're making some poor personnel decisions in the leadership ranks in what looks like an effort to reduce costs. but that's driving away some of their best people. There's a lot of turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people, not just one guy who's only skill is cutting costs.

    Not the worst ever, but certainly not a positive experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Quadriga Art

    Pros

    Easy to get to from many areas (w/public transportation).
    Flexibility and understanding in terms of personal needs (e.g. time off)
    Benefits available
    Excellent middle management leaders

    Cons

    Only 30-minute lunch break
    Worst benefits ever; hardly worth paying for
    Very poor upper management leaders
    Favoritism toward some employees
    Lack of communication in many areas
    Low salaries
    Minimal annual raises (or sometimes none)
    No holiday bonuses (or sometimes just for some people)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle mgmt/direct supervisors have been fair, communicative & strong leaders. But upper management consistently shows lack of respect & fairness. Strongly suggest you examine the tendencies toward favoritism. It's inexcusable that employees are aware that some people get holiday bonuses while others don't. If Casual Friday is the only day to wear jeans, then that should be the rule for all, not some departments. If one department has a 30-min. lunch break, then all should. Expand the lunch break. There's no way to do anything in NYC in 30 minutes. Learn to give credit where credit's due. Take note of people's complaints. Everyone agreed that the medical plan options are atrocious. Ridiculously high deductibles vs. overly expensive contributions.

    great employees that go unrecognized

    Pros

    * great co-workers
    * business casual attire
    * earned time off
    * team based environment
    * creative environment
    * cool business model (premiums)

    Cons

    * long hours
    * no overtime compensation
    * numerous process/procedure changes without cause
    * business infrastructure needs to be upgraded
    * employees are under appreciated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should seriously consider how they treat current employees. Small incentives and acts of kindness could go a long way as the economy & job market pick up. Management should also invest in the proper tools for the business and stop trying to "patch" issues with band-aide solutions and knee jerk reactions. The company has great potential, it just needs an outside consultant and a few technology upgrades to steer it into the 21st century.

    Not an company I would care to work for again or recommend to any potential new employees

    I worked at Quadriga Art

    Pros

    Great team of people. Easy to get along with and very friendly. They want to do a good job and help the company succeed.

    Cons

    Very low level of interest by management in the welfare of their employees. Limited personal development opportunities. Overall, a below average level of sophistication in both their leadership and management approach, as well as their product portfolio. A lot of repetitive work due to lack of investment in systems infrastructure. Compensation and benefits fall far behind industry average. Staff morale is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in developing the talent in your employees. Listen and act on the feedback you receive from staff. Invest in upgrading the systems infrastructure to ensure you do not rely only on human input to get the work done. Once the economic climate improves, your employees will leave and your overhead costs will only increase with lack of proper systems. Labor is the highest cost in most organizations!

    Pros

    Business Casual dress-code
    A lot of work
    in business for 77 years
    can bring your dog in

    Cons

    creativity can be discouraged, many robots, many heroes that go unrecognized
    infighting and positioning within middle management is encouraged.
    no privacy (gossip exists even in HR)
    there is little to no professional development available
    It is a negative, toxic environment that keeps employees only because of the current economic situation.
    awful benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the "culture" that you claim is such a strong point for the company.
