    A well-managed company providing excellent benefits and pay!

    Information Technology (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsQuestar is a stable and terrific company to work for. They have a nice benefits package. Employees are rewarded with annual incentive programs and compensation is competitive yet designed to attract and retain the very best employees. This company is in an enviable position of having a CEO who has vision and excellent communication skills. The well-educated and intelligent upper management team is probably the best they have ever had.

    ConsThe same things that make it an attractive company to work for also cause stagnation and infrequent advancement opportunities. With the exception of call center employees, most employees seem to leave only at retirement. There have been some demographic improvements lately as more of the workforce are now coming close to or reaching retirement age.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Better Get Everything Coming To You In Writing If you don't, they will take it back and call it an interim position.

    Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) Union City, CA

    ProsGood work environment (Union City,Ca. location).
    Small Two Man Operation. Pretty good benefits, unless you turn them in late because your constantly busy.

    ConsNew manager makes you feel like your constantly under a microscope .There is a time off policy but you cannot utilize it. This location is only a two man operation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo Not Promise (make offers) then take them back a few months later. Really bad for moral
    They have a bad habit of doing this.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Best company I've ever worked for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThey have a great benefits package and a generous bonus program for all employees. My co-workers are happy and everyone seems to respect the corporation. They always have community service projects and volunteer opportunities to break up the monotony and give back to the area. The company just cares about the people who work there and treat them well. It seems like most of the people I've met have been with the company at least 10 years and many are over 30 years.

    ConsDowntown locations requires public transit or paying for parking.

    Very great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsQuestar Corp. benefits from very quality upper level management. Additionally, the management team is accessible, that is, you can talk to them when you need to and they act like regular people. In my experience, they understand what you are trying to say to them. Also, in my case the pay was really good as compared to my peers.

    ConsThe downside is that there is little room for advancement within the company. The whole company is run very efficiently, which of course is a plus. But that also translates into everyone having a very specific role and position in the company, and when there is little mobility or room for advancement, you can feel like you are in a rut.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think more job feedback is necessary. The management team was always extremely polite with me and gave some limited positive feedback, but I kept wondering whether I was doing a good job or not. I want to give the highest quality work, but it wasn't always clear to me if they perceived me as having done a great job or something sub-par in their opinion. Of course, I am not inviting constant criticism. I am just saying that more dynamic feedback (positive, negative, everything in between) would probably help them get more of what they want out of us, and help us feel more secure that we are providing the best services we can.
