    I have been working at Quantros full-time

    Pros

    Good team, feels like friends and family

    Cons

    No infrastructure investment. Leadership lacks vision and takes no input from folks who actually do the work - only interested in selling the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Company is filled with smart, talented and collaborative people who go to great lengths to support client needs. Opportunity to work on a variety of projects and wear many hats.

    Cons

    Office culture was not very unified in terms of company vision, goals, and product collaboration. Demands and expectations constantly shifted due to lack of strong motivation and direction from Leadership team.

    Pros

    The benefits are even or PAR with other high Tech companies.The culture is very good, very diverse, harmoniums…

    Cons

    The downside is that in a large corporation you can get lost in the shuffle. You can lose your autonomy and become a small cog in a big wheel.

    I have been working at Quantros full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are little smart, you can play with marketing words and shine in the company.

    Cons

    The current management is so poor that they are making each others fool. There is no strategic direction, you just need to talk, talk, and talk. No need to execute on any plan, as the top management is not able to create them. Business folks (so called "Strategists" come up ideas that have no financial relevance. CMO is busy playing politics and doesn't think about company's needs. People are not at all working together.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company, as you are not able to set it up for success.

    Pros

    The start-up atmosphere promotes self-starters and taking initiative.

    Cons

    True disconnect between departments; between staff and upper management. Little to no sense of companywide morale.

    Pros

    Great, smart people work here. Especially lately - the last few months - we have added new team members who are genuinely good, talented and interesting people. Senior mgmt is trying to implement big changes and adapt to changing industry.

    Cons

    Many demands, the work is never done. The culture here also encourages much work and little play. You have to make your own personal break time. Departments are often not collaborative, creating some friction and bureaucratic communication problems.

    Advice to Management

    Open communication, invest in some internal rapport building. New changes are working but let's not burn out.

    I worked at Quantros full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    While I was there - my department was a great unit. I had support from my boss and my bosses boss. But that all changed with new managment.

    Cons

    new managment does not adress business problems and in a desperate attempt to fix $$ issues they implemented layoffs by cutting the mostly highly functional department in the company as opposed to trimming poorly functioning individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Look at details instead of line items.

    Pros

    New management creating a positive and diverse culture. New location with room for all employees.

    Cons

    Engineering needs to be held accountable, and needs a reality check.

    Advice to Management

    Need to endorse and nurture collaboration. Too many people who don't share information for job security creates a broken mold for all new blood.
