    Was very limiting and hard to work there.

    I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

    Pros

    Met some great people there. Made some great friends who I have kept in touch with and also left there with some great contacts who helped me find other jobs that were better suited to me.

    Cons

    The overall management was very strict and did not allow for any new learning or development of skills. I did not really appreciate the way I was spoken to there or treated either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to understand your employees better. When you tell them that you will provide them with guidance as a new recruit right out of college, make sure you follow through with your words.

    I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

    Pros

    Good starting salary, semi-annual bonuses, learn as much technical information as you like, learn about a specific niche in the oil and gas industry.

    Cons

    Introverted work place, regardless of position it is very technical, long hours - minimum 45 hour billable weeks, unreasonable deadlines, most skills learned can only be applied to Quorum specific applications, lack of communication between management and consultants, company structure is a mystery to most employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create most accountability company-wide. Have open communication between verticals within the company.

    I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned a lot while I was there. Was able to grow and strengthen some of my skills.

    Cons

    Management cant seem to figure out how to get it all to work. High turnover. Work hours -- require you BILL 9 hours daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees. They are not happy with all the changes you keep making. And just because someone has been there and is a senior person does NOT make them a good manager!!!!

    I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very large learning curve especially for entry level employees.

    Cons

    Not very diverse yet (growing company) and people don't always mingle outside their work group of associates or friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Creating some fun activities such as incentives etc. could help employees perform better and create room for associates to meet each other. I don't believe there is enough room for social activities as an entire company. Noticed many people who haven't met each other but have been working in the company for 2 or more years.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant

    I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

    Pros

    - Very good opportunities for people to learn
    - Most of the people are nice
    - Good compensation
    - Good perks if you enjoy work travel

    Cons

    - Limited appreciation from senior management and middle managers
    - Too many inexperienced people and lack of working managers for mentoring
    - Long hours
    - A relatively stressful work environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your people, not only limited to compensation per se, but say encouraging words in the hallway, trained your managers to appreciate the employees, etc. Sometimes small things can have multiplying effects. Understand your people's needs and the situations, don't just focus on chargeability. Communicate to employees more frequently, a lot of time people just don't know the direction and the future of the company.
