    Pros

    The good things, provided you work in the right department or country are flexible working hours and generally nice people, unfortunately that is about it at the moment. The industry/sector Quadriga operates in still has significant potential and if fixed Quadriga could exploit it again.

    Cons

    The company has been struggling for approximately the last 5-6 years, the leadership (with the exception of those who joined recently) have little idea in which direction to take the company, they lack any sort of apparent focus (apart from that mentioned below) and continue to either not make decisions or make irrational decisions that waste money and then rather than acting professionally and reviewing things, they continue to defend their decisions (or lack of them) until it quietly gets swept under the carpet. It does not feel like working for one company, the different country offices and even departments feel quite segregated and do not work well together. The repeated rounds of redundancies, every single year, have sapped the energy out of many employees. A significant chunk of the technology the company relies upon (this is a technology company) is ageing and any suggestion of fixing or offering thoughts on how to make things better results in literally being shouted down. The top leadership has determined that it's primary focus is to sell the company, they want out and the desperation is showing as they rarely listen to employee needs. The remaining leaders/heads run around like headless chickens trying vying for the limelight, in all honesty i would avoid working for this company until it is taken over.

    Advice to Management

    Let someone who cares about technology, people and the industry sector (not necessarily in that order) take control, remove those who only want to feather their own nests. Set goals that are achievable and let employees deliver and contribute, don't change focus half way through projects. Set up a real programme/project team and let them run things, not the directors who do not have skills or experience in that area. Give people training when they need it. Make sure you become more approachable.

    Pros

    Working for the market leader in guest communications solutions to the Hospitality industry. Quadriga have an excellent senior and middle management team, with an in depth understanding of the market. At Quadriga you are well rewarded for hard work, and good performance, and they really look after their employees. Plenty of scope for advancement, and the company invests in the training and development of its staff.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any - worked for Quadriga for two years and thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and continue to expand so that more people may have the opportunity to work for you.

    Pros

    - I received my salary on time. - Some good people to work with, but not for

    Cons

    - No personal development, there was never money in the budget to invest in staff training. - I was never given a pay review. - The new pension scheme and health care is less favourable than the previous offering. - Regular redundancies - the continued work is just given to remaining employees. - I cannot count how many CFO's the company has been through in the past few years

    Advice to Management

    The business is suffering from the wrong people in wrong jobs at the top of the company. The business model is old and needs a complete overhaul if the company is to survive in todays current Hotel Entertainment market.

    Pros

    Some very smart people, good flexible benefits, good location next to train station and M4, improving social scene with company events etc

    Cons

    Limited training, personal growth or succession planning, very autocratic at the top level with little evidence of listening to the staff or customers, a lack of business focus and strategy has resulted in too few people trying to do too many things and the company losing its way. Poor offices - very hot, too open plan and too cramped

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, listen to your customers, look after both better. Define the strategy, communicate it and live it
