Pros

Great people, personal work environment, encourages you to learn and better yourself. Also the benefits, paid vacation and holidays, 401k, health insurance, fitness center, paid and unpaid classes and training.

Cons

Quad is it's own little world. It's hard to break in if you're an outsider, luckily I already had family and friends when I started and that helped me to move up, but not much. There's a lack of opportunity for advancement, and frequently promotions don't go to the most qualified, but to those with the most seniority or connections. Also, management can be hypocritical and play favorites, and the system in place to report issues with management doesn't work. Communication is lacking between departments and it affects the quality of the work performed.

Advice to Management

Management needs to spend less time worrying about what everyone else is doing and pay more attention to their own job. Communication needs to be opened up and encouraged between departments, instead of the constant finger pointing and competition. You need to compensate your better employees in ways other than just a "Good Job!" (Hint: $$$).

    poor compenation, extra effort is discouraged, no chance in hell of career development. 4 year running pay freeze. New hires routinely hired at higher salaries than their leads. Face terrible prospects for their industry.

    You are bleeding so many tech employees because you refuse to compensate them fairly.
