    I have been working at Quanticate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Although the company already has great work/life balance/flexible scheduling, I have seen that Quanticate has been regularly asking how their management team can improve employee satisfaction within the company by conducting surveys (and seriously considering them). I think our company makes a strong effort to take in our employees opinions. They have been successful in listening to what we would like to see and have implemented these ideas to improve benefits and the working environment as a whole. I've been happy that Quanticate has provided many employees opportunities for learning through mentoring and training (SAS and Statistics) as well as opportunities for advancement. The U.S. Headquarters in Durham has improved benefits for 2015 as well. I think we have a close knit group-ordering lunch in, going to group activities and even recently being part of Habitat for Humanity which was quite enjoyable to us all.

    Cons

    No real cons here to mention.

    Advice to Management

    I have been impressed that management continues to improve the salaries and benefits and the future of Quanticate looks positive.

    good work-life balance, standard benefit. Nice co-workers.

    Cons

    1. Not transparent, lack of communication from upper management. we were given assurance about our job security and the next week everyone in the office was laid off due to lack of work for us. 2. No layoff severance package.

    Pros

    Nice people at Durham Office but all were laid on July 2015

    Cons

    Very Low Pay Poor Communication from Upper Management Lied about never getting Laid off No work life balance, do not believe if somebody tells you otherwise ADVICE to Current and Future Employee: Run as far as you can run away from this company

    Advice to Management

    Statement more than advice: Your laid off was boon in disguise now I can work for good pay and benefits and for people who respect their employee.

    I worked at Quanticate full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance, nice coworkers in Durham office (though now all gone)

    Cons

    Low pay, poor communication from upper management, lied about never laying off, terrible overtime policy

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with non management employees. Anticipate when work will be slow and ensure you can keep your employees busy. Obtain more smaller clients as opposed to only large ones to ensure pipeline of work is adequate for number of employees. Pay U.S. workers according to U.S. averages, not UK averages. Offer better overtime policy

    Pros

    Flexible time Flexible schedule Work life balance depending on the department, line managers are helpful Wonderful colleagues

    Cons

    Low Salary Poor benefits - no 401k match No training opportunities Extremely poor communication high turnover rate with a large population "looking" extremely small office, only 5-10 people at any given time dress-code IT support No tuition re-imbursement

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like adults. Communicate what's happening in the company, atleast "try" and reduce the turn over rate. Compete with other companies, invest in employees

    Pros

    You have an almost unlimited possibility to work from home. Usually not required to make any overtime. Even if you do, you may reduce this after crunch time. Good working atmosphere.

    Cons

    The salaries are lower than competitors'.

    Pros

    This is an up and coming company. It has a nice office atmosphere with friendly people. The company seems to be expanding and growing. Any internal issues are usually resolved fairly quickly

    Cons

    Small offices with office politics. Little or no pay rise/bonus structure. Seems to be lack of communication between departments and lots of finger pointing. Reliant on employees with no back up if they leave.
