    I have been working at QualiTest Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very smart people, a lot of learning every day, high energy environment, very interesting business challenges to understand each customer's unique QA environment and tailor an optimal testing solution for them

    Cons

    You need to be able to thrive in an office that can be noisy and at times a bit chaotic, there is so much going on that it can be overwhelming at times but never boring, the pace of change can be too much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With so much going on and so much growth you need to keep communicating with all employees about what is going on at the company, you have tried hard to do this but there are always people who do not know the latest

    I have been working at QualiTest Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Open environment, you can talk with even the CEO about and issue & he will address it, he cares & will take time to interact with the staff
    - They value our opinion, they take our votes for new cups they made for the company etc
    - The Sr management is very approachable & friendly
    - The monthly events
    - The training program - if you are a new tester getting into the world, the exposure & training you receive here is great.
    - The overall work environment
    - The exposure to a tester of various tools & various projects is GREAT

    Cons

    - The Salary for entry level is not THE BEST, but they make up in benefits (such as the gym plan where they pay for the gym & we earn vacation days), training, overall environment
    - Its an environment that is not structured, if you like structure, this is probably not the place for you. But if you want to have flexibility, open work culture, this is good for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more joint company events
    Keep doing the good job you are doing

    I have been working at QualiTest Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    One of the best things about being at QualiTest is that our office in San Diego is like a big family; everyone is generally very friendly and helpful. We are even going together every morning to the Cross-fit (A membership the is fully covered by QualiTest. Isn't that great !!)

    Cons

    Don't have anything yet... I hope I never will.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love the happy hours... but now with the Gym membership you gave us, try to go on healthy food and just cakes and pizza.

    I worked at QualiTest Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work is simple, nothing too hard to learn. I just graduated and didn't care where I work first, this place will take anyone that is willing to accept a low salary.

    Cons

    People who work here didn't have other options so you meet all types of weird people. The office is filthy and instead of cleaning they keep bringing food in. Some of upper management is extremely controlling, to the point that they missed many good ideas from many juniors because they refused to listen to them. Just because some of the new people are juniors doesn't mean they don't have great ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your juniors. Don't talk over them. Pay attention to your retention rate, there is a reason why everyone leaves your company. Don't enforce Glassdoor reviews. Don't monitor everyone's every step, micromanagement is not healthy for the workplace.

    I have been working at QualiTest Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The management are very friendly and approachable. The lead testers are good teachers. There are plenty of opportunities to advance in the company as it is growing quite quickly.

    Cons

    The salaries are slightly less than market averages. As a result, there is a high rate of turnover for highly talented individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are very few group activities that take place outside of work hours. It would be nice if some were organized

    I have been working at QualiTest Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best place to get an experience in the QA & Testing, I learned a lot and I'm feeling lucky to be near so many talented co worker. Also, the game zone is great... I need to practice some more on the pool table in order to win some games :)

    Cons

    Not much... sometimes the project is annoying and not interesting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring more challenging projects, continue with the education lectures in the conference room

    I worked at QualiTest Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company gives people with no prior experience or skills jobs.

    Cons

    Unsanitary office, probably because the company packs a small space with too many people.

    Senior management tries too hard to make you part of a "team" that it feels more like a cult. Senior management seemed to lack logic when giving out instructions to juniors.

    It seemed like the branch that I was at was filled with slow learners, but working here made me aware of what to look for when I was interviewing at my current company.

    I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone unless job offers are scarce. I only was at this company for 3 weeks when I noticed all the issues they were having so I quickly moved on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the issues were the type of people who were "chosen" for management positions. I watched many juniors and seniors put in their 2 weeks notice and I realize that the people in management positions were there by default.

    As long as the company is growing it should align the salaries according to the market.

    Keep the good work.

    Pros

    No competition from peers because they all went to Devry!

    Cons

    Desperate and cheap company. Rude, old, and nontechnical managers drive me nuts. I haven't met anyone who knows how to program! I watched a senior engineer get fired by a client because she didn't know the basics of the product we were assigned!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get out of the way of younger testers and let us do our jobs!
