Pay ok, bad business practices, frustrating to those who are motivated to do well

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time

ProsDepending on your major, you may find your pay here to be higher or lower than it would be elsewhere, and the coworkers (Manager level and below) are intelligent people who are willing to help. Certain product groups do have happy employees, but most of them do not; it comes down to the Senior Managers.

ConsThe company does not value their employees. Since it is a consulting company, they charge clients by the hour, and so billable hours are extremely important. It is YOUR fault if the group is low on work. Don't be fooled by the overall good rating of this company; since this company is so small, most people refuse to post anything on these sites. They are okay with the high turnover rates, as inexperience means more billable hours.

The company also seems extremely cheap. For example, when the Houston office moved locations from a free parking situation to one that would cost from $130+ (mostly $200)/ month, they only reimbursed the employees $75/month, TAXABLE.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees better.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Everything but the pay is bad

Consultant (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time for more than a year

ProsThe pay is great. If you are able to get an assignment where you're at a client site, the job isn't bad.

ConsEverything else. The hours are long and every single moment of your time needs to be assigned to a ticket. If work is scarce and you can't allocate your time to an assignment, it's YOUR fault. Instead of doing real work, the CEO smugly walks around most of the day spying on people in an attempt to catch them doing something wrong.

Advice to Senior ManagementBad executives, so nothing can be done.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Unlimited sources of knowledge

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

ProsQuorum provides a great launchpad for individuals and professionals wanting to learn about the IT as well as energy industries.

ConsQuorum does not have many if any downsides at all, since a down for one individual may be a pro for others. The consensus on a potential con are strict estimate deadlines. However, this can be seen across the consulting industry and is not limited to Quorum.

valued employee in a growing company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

ProsQuorum treats their employees extremely well. With very competitive salaries, bonuses, and profit sharing, the compensation is unlike I've seen in most companies.

ConsAs a smaller company, it is almost required that every employee travel for a period of time. Some travel more than others, but it can be up to 100%.

Solid company above avg growth

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

ProsDon't seem to have layoffs once a year like some other tech copmanies.

ConsNo groups or divisions that are immune to travel but they seem to work with you if you have an issue that comes up that requires you to stay local for a short time.

Software Centric Consulting

Consultant (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

ProsGood Business Model - averages out revenue swings that occur in normal consulting model
Very Loose management styles.
Good work life balance encouraged.

ConsLack of knowledge shared among workers.
Lack of management presence to guide workflows
Somewhat static positions long wait times to move positions with in the firm

Advice to Senior ManagementFoster an environment where workers can assemble and solve work related problems that they are intriniscally excited about. There are aspects of the industry that can be more exciting to work on but are unaccessible for a given position to contribute to those solutions.
