      I worked at QuEST Global full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Depending on the role, the hours can be flexible. Generally friendly group of people. Lot of opportunities to learn new skills. Pretty good benefit plan. Potential to start your own projects.

      Cons

      Growth potential within the company is limited to mostly management positions. Unless you are proactive, there is a good chance you will be stuck copying and pasting things in Excel all day. There is a high turnover. This is a pro and con, anyone with skills leaves for a better paying job. The emphasis is on flat growth. Body count is worth more than skills and knowledge.

      Advice to Management

      Recognize and reward talent. Have some incentive for talent to stick around. It's hard to rate the management because the turnover is so high. There are some good and some bad. Invest in the customer, it's not always about making a quick buck.

        I have been working at QuEST Global full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Hour flexibility, can pretty much go in and leave whenever you want as long as youre there for 8 hours

        Cons

        Terrible Management, nobody stays working here long enough to know whats going on

        Advice to Management

        Find your employees strengths and weaknesses and apply them. Also, send them to schools.

        I worked at QuEST Global full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        - Good first step into the Aerospace Industry - Flexible hours and schedule - Plenty of opportunity to learn if you take advantage of it

        Cons

        - work isn't very challenging - because of the SOW based nature of the work there is some amount of uncertainty. SOWs can get cancelled or delayed in renewal for varies reasons out of your immediate control - Very high turnover rate - Low pay compared to immediate competition (This is mostly based on their business model)

        Advice to Management

        I would advise management to invest in their employees and reward success much more than they currently do. People use this company as a stepping stone precisely because they are never rewarded for their toil and effort with anything other than more work. I would argue that this would greatly help the turnover rate. Another thing that I would like to mention is more manager specific. Certain managers make promises...
