    I worked at QuantumClean full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exciting work with new challenges every day. The quality of our work is immediately evident when our customer installs the cleaned parts into their machines and perform the acceptance testing. The employees have many years of cumulative knowledge in the parts cleaning and analytical engineering. Plant locations around the world (US, Taiwan, Israel, UK, Korea, Singapore, Netherlands).

    Cons

    The work-life balance is leaning heavily towards the work side. Many of the tasks and operations are manual (not automated) and very labor intensive. Manual processes are harder to control and keep consistent between employees and plant locations. Some managers are out of touch with the technical processes, often driving for throughput and not providing resources required to follow the processes correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get on the production floor and get trained on the parts cleaning processes. This will open their eyes to the constraints and focus resources where they are needed most. Top management in Asia needs to be reorganized. The high turnover and low moral in that region can be tied to a root cause if HR would open their eyes.

    I worked at QuantumClean full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The paycheck clears the bank but you have to always wonder.

    Cons

    HR is slow to respond to complaints and seems to have very limited knowledge of the DOL regulations. The pay is poor and not related to work requirements or individual competencies. Nothing - and I mean nothing is in writing...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace HR management team - Have all execs read Dan Pink's book "Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us" and Bob Sutton's "The No A**hole Rule: Building a civilized workplace and surviving one that isn't."

    Pros

    None. The management is horrible. Pay is decent, benefits are horrible.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. A manager cussed out the entire department for not being able to hit deadlines, when the specs changed daily. When asked for specs, they were never given. Shoot from the hip design.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people decently. Cussing out departments is not a good management technique.

    I worked at QuantumClean full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    New office building
    Made some good friends
    Can't say anything else positive

    Cons

    Pay is low
    Computer systems are horrible and crash all the time
    The more you do, the more they want (with no insentive)
    Management has no clue what they're doing
    If you work hard and try to do the right thing, they will fire you. I was lucky, I quit.

    I worked at QuantumClean full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunities to create new systems to help run the enterprise. Easy to get a job here.

    Cons

    This place was an absolute nightmare!

    No ownership of anything you make. The IT department is guided by a singular vision of the CIO. All meetings are driven by the CIO.

    CIO eliminated daily standups. Didn't see any value in them -- mostly because he attended them and caused them to last 2 hours instead of 15mins. Everything is now shot from the hip.

    No development methodology is used. Requirements change daily but the due dates do not.

    No coding standards. Everyone comes from a different background and no code reviews are conducted to get people on the same page.

    Lacking leadership. No feedback or written expectations. Review process is ignored.

    No upward mobility.

    "Good ole boy club"

    No regards to security or best practices despite being a billion $ company.

    Constantly making promises to executives before doing ANY research let alone planning. Development is never consulted before anything. For example, management will promise the executives to have a system spec'd out, planned, and implemented in 1-2 months. This project will be given to 1 person to handle front end, backend, and business logic. Good luck. Deadlines are never hit, and developers are blamed for it.

    No concept of iterative development. You have no time to plan or complete the project, but it is expected to be perfect and all inclusive (feature wise) at the end of 1 (maybe 2) month(s). In other words, waterfall concept in agile sprint time frames.

    Gossip is NON STOP. Feels like high school. Management included. A lot of backstabbing and coups being staged. A lot of "private talks". Creates a very hostile environment. Management tends to try and turn you against your peers. Particularly the ones they do not like.

    Nothing you tell HR is private. If you complain about management, they will tell management exactly what you said, who said it, and any names that you mention. No protection against reprisal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people you hire do their jobs. Adopt a development methodology and commit to it. Stop the gossip.
