    Pros

    The benefits of this company are amazing. We pay $10 a check for individual healthcare if we use their doctors (located a block away in corporate building), we get a profit sharing bonus each year and 15% of our salary contributed to our 401k (if we contribute 5%).

    Cons

    There is sometimes still the good ol' boy system in place where they go ahead and decide which male they want for the position even before posting it. That gets a little discouraging when trying to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and honest when picking people to fill positions and don't just do it by the good ol boy system.

    I worked at QS/1 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, laid-back supervisor/regional manager, company car with unlimited gas for personal use

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for advancement in the company (unless you're working at QS/1 HQ in Spartanburg, SC)

    Advice to Management

    Management and the company as a whole needs to better keep up with new technologies and innovations.

    Pros

    Great people that go out of their way to help each other accomplish their goals. Good company benefits including matching 401k, company cars, phones and laptops.

    Cons

    The company is stuck in the past and is slow to respond to customer needs. Their solutions are antiquated and upper management is slow to respond to market trends.

    Pros

    Great benefits, such as health care, retirement (401k) contributed by company.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless to the goings on of average employees. Little to no advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Get off of the pedestal and come down to where the company started out.

    Pros

    This company is really good to their employees and are active in the community. They match dollar-for-dollar charitable donations made by employees and buy gifts for foster/homeless kids at Christmas. Hours are consistent, benefits are awesome, salary is one of the best you'll find in the Spartanburg area, if not the best.

    Cons

    I really don't have any complaints. Obviously this is a job and some days will be better than others, but on the whole this is a great place to work

    I have been working at QS/1 full-time

    Pros

    Office supplies, annual bonus, profit sharing, and an hour lunch. You'll always have a job as long as there are pharmacies dispensing drugs. You'll meet people who have been there forever, but it doesn't necessary mean they are happy.

    Cons

    Below average PTO, horrible health insurance, location. If you're new, this is a dog eat dog environment. People do not want to see you do well, they are looking forward to seeing you fail. This is not a company where you'll be able to grow. This is strictly a job and not some place for your career.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be reorganized. Meaningless titles and positions that seem to overlap or have no purpose. Learn to boost morale. Work isn't divided fairly or appropriately.

    I have been working at QS/1 (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits package is very good. This is a historically stable company. There are few terminations, but that can be a con, too.

    Cons

    Promotion is next to impossible. Too much micro management. No freedom to do a good job without a babysitter taking credit.

    Advice to Management

    Identify, groom, and trust good employees.

    I worked at QS/1 full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bonuses several times a year, Profit Sharing, 401K and Christmas. Just when you decide to move on, there's a bonus on the horizon.

    Cons

    Outdated management, ridiculous policies like dress code. The employee handbook has pictures of "inappropriate" hemlines and shoulder strap widths.
    No decisions are made with regard to business just do what a few people want who run the place.
    "New" people get confusing messages about how great it was at the "old" building, that was over 10 years ago move on.
    The company is on a dying a path and the competition is thriving causing strange new projects and lots of confusion. Customers are tired of calling about problems that never get fixed.
    The company has so many products that none are done well.

    Advice to Management

    Retire, replace senior management with professional business leaders to turn things around or
    Sell the company, return equity to the shareholders and cash out

    Great place to work. Everyone worked well together and were very helpful. I loved everything about working there. Only left because I became ill.

    Cons

    Pros

    Amazing customers, good benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Management is prone to play favorites and micromanages employees, regardless of quality of work performed.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the reins and let your employees work to their strengths and when asking questions, do not automatically treat the responses as "excuses" (especially when asking why a particular course of action was taken).
