I worked at QuEST Global as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Subsidiaries of United Technologies was outsourcing a lot of jobs to QuEST during the economic downturn. This temporary job allowed me to gain experience until I found a full time position with a different company.

Cons

Their compensation was about 30 - 40% less than industry standard and they had very little benefits.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees competitively and they might stay.

    I have been working at QuEST Global (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule is nice. You are obligated to be there from 9-3, so you can go in early or go in at 9, whatever you prefer. Also, if "doing nothing" all day is your style of work, this job will suite that desire.

    Cons

    The pay is well below the mean for a project engineer. You are really nothing more than a data entry worker; which, in my opinion, is a degrading feeling when I've graduated college and gotten an engineering degree.

    There are no paid holiday's. The 10 vacation days must be applied to the holiday closures and furlough time. Don't get sick and don't make plans for a vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people more. Give them more responsibilities. Make them feel less like invalids and more like engineers.
