    Pros

    NQF encourages a good work/life balance, has excellent benefits, friendly/intelligent staff, ability to telecommute, OVERTIME is compensated with the flex time option, Senior staff are always professional and pleasant to deal with, HR is efficient and has always addressed my questions or concerns.

    Cons

    I don't care for the cake, now if it were cupcakes that may be a different story- or ice cream cones maybe. No negatives I can think of.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. Flexible schedule's depending on who you work for. Option to telecommute if your manager likes you. Plenty of free food, there's always a luncheon, birthday party, or someone coming or going party. Cool Co-workers, depending on which group you interact with.

    Cons

    Poor management, overtime is often required, lack of accountability, buck passing, blatant favoritism, growth depends on who are friends with, I promise you have never encountered a HR department like this place, the worst ethics, gossiping, and misrepresentation you have ever seen, the turnover rate is crazy.

    I have been working at National Quality Forum full-time

    Pros

    Best reason maybe the free slice of birthday cake/goodies. Let them eat cake if all else fails. Eat your sorrows away, please have this cake on us. Would give zero stars if that was an option.

    Cons

    Favoritism, merit-less promotions, inflated job titles and job descriptions, lack of responsibility and accountability, blame always placed on others, finger pointing, backbiting, gossiping. 40% of program based/project funded workforce resigned, quit, left within the last 2-3 years. High turnover for such a small organization.

    Advice to Management

    Should be major concern on your leadership or lack thereof when the majority of program based/project funded workforce has been with the organization less than 3 years under the now COO then SVP, Administration. The solution is for the Board to step in and find a new management team. A top-down approach instead of bottom-up approach might be long overdue.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Good work - life balance, friendly co-workers. Most projects are contracted through the Government, though there is plenty of work to keep staff challenged and active.

    Cons

    1. Low morale within the company. 2. High employee turn over in all levels of Staff. Revolving door of crucial higher executive team members leaving the company, (i.e. CEO, CFO and VP positions) .3.Lack of trust/confidence of the companies' Human Resources department. HR Management does not lead by example, multiple ethical breaches within the department.

    Advice to Management

    Executive team needs to engage staff, listening to their concerns and making the necessary improvements/changes. Management needs to enforce company policies and procedures and make sure that Senior Management is setting an example of ethical, morale and legal behavior.

    Pros

    Great benefits, smart, friendly people, good location and good funding. People are passionate about their jobs. The work is challenging.

    Cons

    Staff get hung up on minutia and can't figure out the larger picture. Senior leadership doesn't seem to want to deal with negative news or take on tougher issues. If you enjoy debating issues and spinning your wheels, this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Look outside your circle for advice and be willing to change.
