    Pros

    They give you 15 minutes of work and somehow you have to make it last all day. Boss is nice.

    Cons

    Boring. The job requires you to constantly be looking for new work to stay busy. Days last really long. Not bad gig.

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good. If I remember, there is short term disability, AD&D, life insurance with Aetna, 401K match. Work environment is one that encourages process improvement and you'll do well knowing programming to automate tasks. A lot, if not all engineers are paid hourly due to billing hours with customers, so the schedule is very flexible most of the time.

    Cons

    Based in India, and one side effect is there is no room to move up. It is also sometimes difficult to work with an HQ in India and you're bombarded with emails. Many engineering positions don't require critical thinking or much of an engineering skillset at all.

    Advice to Management

    Get on projects that will be rewarding to employees. Keep being flexible, it makes up for a lot.

    I worked at QuEST Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a great place to begin working in the aerospace industry, or automotive industry depending on your geographic location. I learned many new skills during my time there, and was given a certain amount of latitude to function independently on a regular basis. However, my position was highly specialized, and I consider myself very lucky to have been located at the customer location (United Technologies Aerospace Systems) approximately 95% of the time.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company is Indian owned, and it shows. The employee homepage, employee weekly emails from the company, and many activities were centered around India operations. It became clear to me after nearly 2 years of working there that if you do not move up the chain of command quickly, or get hired directly by your customer company, your choices are limited, and many employees feel trapped in a position beneath them. I left the company after attaining Team Lead status for almost a year, and it was very obvious that despite my requests to upper management for training and extra incentives for my employees, their hands were tied, and were unable to advance their employees careers.

    Advice to Management

    Put pressure on India operations to keep hiring great talent directly from universities, and invest a significantly higher amount of money in further training and educating employees.

    Cons

    Salary and perks are less

    Advice to Management

    People management and satisfaction need to be given prime importance.

    Pros

    Don't usually have long hours (although this can depend on position).

    High turnover, so if you leave it's not unusual or surprising.

    Cons

    Company is painfully cheap, & goes out of their way to discourage and make it difficult for employees to move up.

    What upper management promises to the customer is often not possible for the employees to accomplish, which makes the employee look bad when the promise isn't followed through on.

    QuEST promises resources that they don't have and then push it off onto other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make it so obvious to your employees that you want to always be the lowest cost solution for their customers.

    Pros

    The team interaction aspect is the main reason I work for QuEST. Close interaction and communication with management are also the biggest positives

    Cons

    No upward mobility is nearly impossible. Even with expirence, base pay is about what can be expected. Raises and financial incintives simply do not apply.

    Advice to Management

    People who can lose their jobs at a moments notice need more than lofty promises to retain them as loyal employees

    Advice to Management

    focus on your employees, not your own ladder-climbing
