        I have been working at Q2 Solutions full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        - You can get some good experience if you're on the right project - Most individual contributors are pleasant to work with - Nearly impossible to get fired if you're willing to toe the company line - Discretionary PTO (though you need to be on call, most projects have a bus factor of 1) - Nice coffee machines - Fun company activities - Plenty of open positions

        Cons

        - Major blame culture; you'll be given unrealistic deadlines and chastised for not meeting them regardless of why. If you're lucky enough to meet a deadline, management will make the next deadline tighter. I can't remember the last time anyone on the team met a deadline. - Toxic, untouchable "old guard" - Anyone other than bioinformaticists are treated as second-class citizens - Management actively discourages engineering...

        -Company is growing -Friendly coworkers -Opportunities for growth

        Cons

        -Considering the merger of LabCorp-Covance, the joint venture between Quest-Quintiles to form Q Squared appeared to be in an effort to continue being the "largest CRO". -I increasingly feel like a "number". Departments feel chronically understaffed and overworked. -Communication from upper management seems poor. -Environment feels increasingly corporate in a negative way. -Staff turnover has appeared to increase significantly...

        Advice to Management

        -Your people are the greatest asset to the company, not being the largest CRO. -Consider tools to better monitor those projects that take significantly more time or higher levels of difficulty to complete than others. -Place more emphasis on investing in employees for long term growth. Many departments play such a niche or focused role that the work can become monotonous. -Provide better benefits.

        Pros

        Friendly Coworkers and knowledgeable staff

        Cons

        Poor Management, Directors not located near actual work locations, CEO plays favorites. Wasted money on poorly designed remodels. Very little actual training and no HR presence.

        Advice to Management

        Recognize and acknowledge issues. Spend some time at locations where actual work is being done. Design tools to improve productivity rather than add additional steps required to complete tasks.
