    Pros

    You have some really intelligent people at this company that makes things happen. Also upper manager cares about their employees. I am very honored to be working here.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a disconnect with RM's but with start up companies its to be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and thank you for making Quorum a wonderful place to work at.

    Pros

    Expanding team with opportunity for promotions
    Flexible schedules
    Great team atmosphere
    Good benefits
    Committed & hard working employees that take pride in their product
    Encouragement and recognition of hard work from management
    A solid product to sell
    Management is understanding when family or health issues arise and aim to take good care of their employees
    Fiercely loyal customers who are so supremely happy with their choice to purchase Quorum's solution that they continuously drop everything to write reviews and make recommendations

    Cons

    High turnover rate that leaves employees fearful of job security
    Poor communication between departments
    Pricing is too high for how new the product is - hard to overcome both the lack of awareness of company and the exorbitant pricing
    Marketing has so far failed to create any brand awareness. (It is common to hear from customers, "Oh funny, I was actively searching for Disaster Recovery Solutions just a few months ago and I never ran across your name.")
    Management is slow to respond to employee suggestions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement training programs or performance evaluation programs rather than firing an new 5+ people every quarter
    Give employees some sense of job security
    Lower price of product - you'll sell more and probably hit your quotas

    Pros

    The Quorum product and disaster recovery solution is great. There are a handful of loyal, hard working, and trust worthy employees left in the SJ office. The medical, dental, vision, and stock options package is above average.

    Cons

    The instability in the Executive Leadership is alarming to say the least. There have been 3 different CEO's, 2 different VP of Marketing, 2 different Global Sales Directors, and 2 different Channel Directors within the last year. The communication between departments is comical because it does not exist. The most tenured Sales Rep has less than 2 years with the company and 90% of the Inside Sales Team are kids straight out of college with little to no experience in Disaster Recovery as a service. The company culture or employee satisfaction is at an all time low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employees like robots. Ask the employees what's important to them and make the necessary changes to slow down churn. Stop using abusive outside consultants, they do not respect the employees that are the foundation of the company. This isn't Symantec, it's Quorum and go back to doing the right thing.

    Pros

    Life is what you put into it. Hard work is recognized and rewarded accordingly. The CEO and CFO bring a high level of executive experience and veteran leadership. The atmosphere at the San Jose office is pretty positive. The employees appear to be very happy with the way things are going. The company has grown significantly within a year and the teams are growing at a rapid rate. Demand for talented and skilled employees are at an all time high and Quorum is aggressively pursuing these individuals.

    Cons

    The challenge of being the new guy on the block is probably the biggest hurdle. Quorum is not a house hold name and their brand has not been established. The company is just tapping into the European market and has a lot of catching up to do. Potential customers may not be ready to take a chance with a new start up company like Quorum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to keep up with demand. Expand the brand by focusing on social media outlets and schedule more face to face events with prospects to increase awareness of the OnQ solution.

    Pros

    It had dedicated employees who worked hard but motivation was an issue since most came from a spin off of an older smoke-stack company.

    Cons

    Not much of a downside for a rank and file employee as it is not any different from other start ups with some times irrational behavior exhibited by the management etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on the shifting market conditions
