    I worked at QED Group LLC (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting sectors that it works in and with knowledge management it is the best in the field. Their KM team is very professional. They hire smart people who all seem to eventually figure QED out and just what its weaknesses (and strengths are). Formally they had a great office location and physical workplace. Former VP (now CEO) works as hard as anyone there and seems to be a nice person at heart.

    Cons

    Wandering weak brand and sectoral focus. May be that has improved ... they recently did their website and it looks much better. Their former CEO was a nice guy but aloof and not the right person technically for the position. The new CEO knows the place from the ground up and is an improvement. Some very sr staff have reputations for being very very unkind and harsh to colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    They seem to have gotten wise and have their founder and owner more involved in building their brand and reputation. They have a great HR VP and the new CEO is very smart and as hardworking as they come, let us hope he matures and mellows like a fine wine. He will then be excellent at his job,

    Pros

    Very oriented to seeing that its employees maintain work-life balance. There were not issues in requesting time off for annual or sick leave. Reactions were universally positive and supportive. Compensation was very satisfactory. New office space configuration conducive to a team culture.

    Urgent deadlines related to client solicitations-- responding to USG RFPs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower, mentor, and nurture newer, less experienced employees who are eager to learn and advance.

    Pros

    Great passionate, engaged, and committed staff. Senior management is committed to building capacity of staff and recognizes the hard work put in by employees. The technical expertise and core values of the company lead to an interesting working portfolio. Friendly working environment.

    Cons

    Work load can be intense at some points. However, leadership recognizes this and still manages to encourage staff to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build the capacity of staff, especially more junior staff. Engage the larger group in discussing decisions that affect the working culture and strategic plans.

    Pros

    QED is a family friendly place with HR policies that support a balanced work life. As the company is growing and going through change, the management team communicates openly with employees to let them know how things are coming along. It is great to be kept in the loop because change can be uncomfortable sometimes. Overall it is great working with the company through the challenges and having a hand in how things evolve. Management is very appreciative of employee efforts too.

    Cons

    As the company grows challenges increase, but with constant communications flowing between management and employees it helps employees keep perspective.

    Advice to Management

    While employees may not always understand the decisions made by management, we trust that you are making the decision for all employees. We appreciate you sharing information with us.
