Be The First To
100% of the CEO

I worked at Quilogy
Pros – Casual atmosphere, nice people, good learning experience, the VP we were under lived up to his every word
Cons – unrealistic expectations, deadlines often too tight, felt like a sweat shop, pressure to work overtime and travel
Advice to Senior Management – There was more than 50% turn over rate within a couple of years. Most people saw the company as a stepping stone to something bigger and better. However, if they had some incentive to stay, these talented people would not take their knowledge and apply it elsewhere. Have a plan to retain employees. They are more of an asset than you think.

I worked at Quilogy
Pros – If you want to work with the latest Microsoft technologies, this is the place for you. They're an elite partner with access to leading-edge projects and technologies. Most of what you learn will be acquired on the job rather than in a classroom; and much of it will be on your own time. You will, however, have client experience to actually put it to use which will look great on your resume and help catapult you to the next level when you change jobs. There is little movement within Quilogy so expect to take your skills elsewhere if you want career advancement.
Cons – Management is super conservative in terms of investing in talent and adequately staffing their projects. They often work employees to the point of breaking rather than hire the help they need. It's not e uncommon to work 60-80 weeks on high priority projects. There is not much of a bonus structure, so you'll make money only if you work overtime on client projects where you're billing over 40 hours a week. Raises are minimal so make sure you get the maximum salary when you first get your offer. The best advice is to hone your skills and take advantage of working on elite customer projects, then collect your rewards with your next job somewhere else.
Advice to Senior Management – Pay more attention to your better employees. About 20% of them do 80% of the work and they are not adequately supported or compensated.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
