    I worked at QEK full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are many good people who work for the company and QEK provided me with good work experiences for several years that helped me prepare for next steps in my career.

    Cons

    QEK is a fine place to work if you are looking for a job but if you want a career and a company to grow with this is not the place. There are few promotions within the company and when you do get one they do not compensate accordingly. I experienced one "promotion" that came with a title and added responsibilities but no added pay.

    Once you reach management level advancement opportunities are much more difficult to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Promote your good people from within, and pay them accordingly!

    I have been working at QEK full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Co workers, some really dedicated employees are left, just a few. I really don't have must more to comment on in the Pros area.

    Cons

    Overworked, No home worklife balance, expected to do more with less, this has been going on for quite some time. Must relocate with no other options, HR has proven to not really be for the employees, only to hire young staff with no care for current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding to the work load

    They work within the limits of the law.

    I worked at QEK full-time

    Pros

    None that I can think of and I have given it quite a bit of thought.

    Cons

    To many to list - I really was offended by a question asked at my surprise dismissal.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and open with your employees. Be careful what is said to avoid bad feelings on the part of your former employees. I could have left with good feelings because of what was said I didn't.

    I worked at QEK full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of one nice thing to say about this company.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING! They are so cheap. Went without an office cleaner for months. No growth potential unless you are an executive. Your annual anniversary is never acknowledged. Plan on staying at minimum pay, which is grossly under the average median salary in the metro Detroit area! The holidays are great ... watch as the executives dance around whispering about their bonuses when everyone else has made the same thing for years.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let Penske bring in new management who knows what they are doing!!
