    I have been working at EtQ full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    ETQ has a good customer base.

    Cons

    Our flagship product is old and tired. The web part was overhauled in the beginning of the year but the Java code remains the same and there is one word for that code - spaghetti. Everyone is trying to get everyone to work together but there are so many mixed messages that none of us engineers know to whom to listen or what to believe. The "majority are already in the Cloud" rebuttal is misleading at best. When a Cloud...

    I have been working at EtQ full-time

    Pros

    New headquarters in Burlington is OK. You won't be alone - there will be a bunch of other miserable people lamenting their decision to join EtQ and trying to come up with a good exit strategy just like you.

    Cons

    This applies to engineering in headquarters, the rest of the company might be better. Management is clearly in over their heads - I've witnessed numerous angry episodes in meetings over trivial things as stress takes it's toll. The current applications use old technology that few other employers are interested in - JSP, Custom Tags, home-grown logging and caching and nearly everything else. The new UI is better, using...

    Advice to Management

    Current management is the ultimate source of the problem. Nothing anyone says to them will fix anything.

    May 13, 2019Manager, People and Culture

    As CTO and 23-year team member at ETQ I don’t recognize our company in the suspiciously eloquent review, but I can expand on some of the reviewer’s comments. Like many successful software companies in the Boston area, ETQ is engaged in an exciting modernization program that involves ...

    I have been working at EtQ full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    New to the Boston area, but making a splash. Company has a long tenure in the Quality space, and is known as a leader. And they've got the blue chip customers to prove it. Cool new office and a progressive culture.

    Cons

    The new office is already full, but the company is expanding office space later this year.

    Great people, genuinely committed to mutual success. Excellent culture -- supporting hard work with good work/life balance. Significant market opportunity. Product is proven and customer base made up of Fortune 1000 companies.

    Company transition from NY headquarters has taken time and attention, but new systems are in place as we start 2019.

    Stay accessible and open as the company continues to grow.

    Pros

    -Senior leaders who are available, trustworthy and ethical that also posses the necessary experience to lead a successful team. -Owners who are investing in the business for the longer term thus minimizing sub-optimal short-term decisions. -Smart and motivated co-workers. -Newly built out Burlington office space with excellent IT tools.

    Cons

    EtQ is investing in all aspects of its business functions which results in a significant amount of change. The change can be disruptive (even though it is positive). Potential employees should be ready to embrace and be part of the evolution.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to welcome and support an inclusive and diverse work environment. It will lead to the desired results!

    Cons

    - Growing fast can be complicated, many moving parts, which can create initiatives that don't always hang together perfectly - HQ change, and lay-offs have created temporary gaps in functional areas - Seemingly outdated for time being, but both minor/major changes already in progress to change that

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Feels like this company will be a major success, and it is great to be a part of it.
