    Pros

    At Quorum, your success is what you make of it. The company provides its employees with tons of opportunities to stretch their skill set and learn new things. Promotions and compensation are merit based and the company has a strong history of promoting from within.

    The company has a strong success in recruiting college hires, as well as, experienced hires. The employees have a wide range of college degrees and the company recruits from the oil and gas industry and from people with technical or consulting backgrounds. Therefore, the employee base is very diverse and have incredibly well rounded skill sets.

    Cons

    Along with its software, the company also performs consulting services for their clients. Whether it's supporting existing clients, or implementing software at a new client, the company expects its employees to take exceptional care in providing services to their clients. That means expectations from an accountability and a performance perspective are extremely high.

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

    Pros

    The people are talented individuals from top to bottom with a culture centered around mentorship, employee development, and dynamic work opportunities. You will learn a lot about the oil & natural gas industry, develop meaningful technical skills, and have opportunities to gain responsibility very early on. A significant portion of the leadership is "home-grown" talent. Financial compensation is very good and merit based. Social and team-building activities happen frequently at the vertical / team level to build camaraderie.

    Cons

    Expectations are high to continue to build on the company's success, so scrubs won't last very long and need not apply.

    Former Employee - Software Consultant in Houston, TX

    I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Training was great, they teach you everything you need to know to gain the skills necessary to be a dynamite employee in another company in oil and gas or software solutions. The competencies they teach you is C#, SQL, C++ and functional oil and gas knowledge. Their pay is also slightly above average, but what it comes with is a 9-10 hour expected work day, and that's just scraping by to not get fired in their eyes.

    Cons

    As stated earlier, 9-10 hour work days required at a minimum. If you see problems and want to contribute to the betterment of the company, you should find another company before you bring it up because they have fired for much less than that. I have seen 100% yes I did not make a mistake, 100% turn over rate in a calendar year. I joined the company and a year later the company had the same number of employees yet terminated (or the talented ones left) close to 50. The only way to prove that you are committed to bettering yourself and the company is to bill more time to a client project and work 12 hour days minimum for no overtime or benefits. the directors I have worked with do not understand business at all, human capitol and retention is laughed at and defecated on when addressed. They don't staff projects appropriately and will expect you to travel Monday morning leaving your house at 3:00 AM only to return to your home city at 11:00PM on Friday night. The company unethically expects 100% billable time out of every employee (even if they are not assigned to a project where its reasonable to expect a fully billable day), so they do not believe in employee/talent development past the first 3 weeks of training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in outside help to reinvent your culture and make the employees feel like its their life, the new generations value time much more than the past generations. Learn to adapt or always expect to be left with the underperforming employees while the rock stars easily leave for better lives and better pay at your competing companies.

    Pros

    Quorum is a rapidly growing company in a rapidly growing industry. It offers employees a great environment to learn both the software and Oil and Gas industries. It is on the leading edge of Oil and Gas Accounting solutions and offers smart motivated consultants the ability for to advance quickly.

    Cons

    Long hours are expected. - Those who are motivated and engaged should not find this unusual. I do not know of any consulting company that would expect any different.

    Some travel will be required However most of the industry is in Dallas, Houston, Oklahoma and Denver so long international trips are rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to let employees know they are appreciated
