    I worked at Quorum Review full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers were very hardworking and good people. Management is not dominated by a boys club club as there are many women and people of different ethnic backgrounds in key management positions. Good company-hosted events like a Mariners game in the fall and a ballroom dinner in winter. Company paid for ORCA transit pass for full-time workers. My boss encouraged our professional development.

    Cons

    The commute - a free bus pass is good but 90 minutes on a bus each way can be difficult for people who cannot afford to live closer to the city. Depending on your department the pay could be more competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protecting research patients is a good cause but many people pushing the paper don't feel that from day to day. Remind them often that their jobs are important and make them feel appreciated. Offer tuition reimbursement so employees will stay longer when they want to go back to school to improve themselves. Allow more people to telecommute to help with rising commute times. Pay scale may need to be reevaluated as Seattle is becoming a very competitive job market for top talent and an expensive place to live in or even near.

    I have been working at Quorum Review full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great downtown location, great insurance and free ORCA card. Casual dress environment.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime due to mismanagement. It is no secret most managers are in their own little club and are willing to throw team members under the bus if it makes them look better. Outdated technology, and when system changes are enacted they are done with little to no training for those expected to use them. Because of this, planned launches are often pushed back two weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to clean house completely.

    I worked at Quorum Review full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly people
    Laid back atmosphere
    Casual attire to include hats
    Mon Friday job
    Orca medical dental medical 401k
    It's a filler job until you find what you want to do. You will learn a few new things.
    Competitive vacation time given
    Holidays off ( the major ones)

    Cons

    Depending on the department some work very long hours
    Short staffed ( running with just enough to barely Get by)
    Complex systems that are outdated
    Poor communication between departments
    Management is re active and distant some don't know how To perform the job of their department.
    It's a re active environment that lacks training for experienced and newly hired.
    The job is complex and if you fall behind you will drown in work overload.
    The expectations that are given are sometimes unrealistic being the work load given and given just enough to barely get the work done or if they can get it done at all if you know what you are doing.
    Some employees seem unhappy more than happy due to the work loads and the complexity of the task.
    Churn / employees leave due to burn out and frustration. Most states they would have stayed but the work load and unrealistic goals burned them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have an established business, if you want to retain your employees and not have churn make it a work place worth coming to. It starts with employee recognition and listening to them. hire more people so the current employees don't burn out or call in sick as much. Take feedback on how to improve the business and train management to be pro active instead of re active.

    I worked at Quorum Review (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and the employees work very hard

    Cons

    The worst management I have ever seen from the top to middle management. Poor communication and no company direction. Very poor business decisions. I had no idea there was so much abuse towards employees when I took the position. I couldn't wait to leave and very happy I moved on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that have business knowledge and are professional. The terrible management is the main reason why turnover is very high.

    Pros

    - It wasn't unpaid.
    - Dental benefits

    Cons

    EVERYTHING ELSE

    Massive turnovers like clockwork. Inept management. Poisonous culture. Zero vision. It's clear the company has been packaged to sell for a while with no buyers interested in taking on that mess. (*The Copernicus Group opted to purchase WIRB in 2012 rather than take on this stinking mess)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in experienced executive and management talent. Rebuild from the floor up.

    Pros

    You can gain the experience you need at Quorum and move on to better companies

    Cons

    From my time working here, I have witnessed the following:
    -Everyone works at least 9 hours plus per day. Dept is horribly understaffed. High turnover due to employee dissatisfaction.
    -Mandatory OT. If you decline due to outside obligations, they will bring it up during your yearly review and you will get less of a pay increase...that is, if you get one at all
    -Management is petty and reactive. I have seen good employees demoted due to politics, for providing honest feedback to management.
    -Letting go of temps that have worked for the company for years and yet keeping on staff that consistently calls out, or completely ineffective in their job that they clog up the process. If you complain, see comment above on management and feedback.
    - Management hire supervisors and leads from outside the company rather than promote from within. They have more faith in qualifications strangers put on paper rather than the commitment and dedications that their own staffs have shown day in and day out
    -The message that management like to convey is that you are NOT valuable to the company and often desks were not yet "cold" before another "warm" body is brought in to replace your job
    -Management from Leads to upper management are 90% of the time "Away" at meetings and yet they have no concept of what it is that you do and the results of these "meetings" only contribute to them not having to do any real "work" because poor work conditions and unfair treatment continues to exist despite the many "meetings" that they go to every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice I provided to HR when I left: You can not have "talks" or "train" management to see values and/or potentials in their employees. They either do or they don't. The whole management team needs to be replaced in my opinion.
