    Pros

    TeamQuest provides a challenging yet rewarding work environment. The company has a great work life balance. The compensation packages are top notch including ESOP distributions depending on the profitability of each year. They provide ample opportunities for career advancement.

    Cons

    Is it better to promote from within or hire externally for senior leadership roles? They may benefit from hiring some external senior leadership talent.

    I have been working at TeamQuest full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I buy lunch for myself, lie about it on my expense reports and say I took a client.

    Cons

    Weak product, poor delivery, no company direction or growth plans, limited opportunity for advancements, below average pay, poor management, even poorer delivery of solution. Our backlog on existing client support is very long and lengthy with no solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move out of the strip mall, quit, make any cloud based solution, create a real services department, treat your employees better, have someone take an MBA class at a real non-Iowa school to learn how high growth companies operate.

    I worked at TeamQuest full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, good ESOP employee ownership program, specialists in a potentially valuable niche

    Cons

    All the drawbacks of a small company without the benefits of ingenuity, creative competitive strategy, and solution agility. Cannot/does not want to keep good sales people. Randomly calculated and unattainable goals.
    Management has had success selling in decades gone past but the market has passed them by in the solution design, and go to market strategies. Budgets are going to newer and more exciting companies/solutions. Sales people are referred to as franchise owners but have no control over pricing or product direction.
    Core values are consistently referenced and not genuinely followed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revitalize and relaunch with the intent to sell the company. Re-architect the solution to not depend on server agents and 20 year-old technology. Re-brand the solution and devise a strategy to creatively win new customers with an beach-head initial sale and expand approach.
