    I have been working at Quanticate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible working hours.
    - Felt like a respected part of the team from the beginning.

    Cons

    - Concerned about the amount of people left the company recently.
    - Work is either little/no work or running around like a headless chicken!

    Advice to Management

    I hear off my colleagues that they are stressed on other studies while I wait for work to appear. We should have some way of "helping" our colleagues and if we knew what Resourcing had planned for us then we would know if we are available to help or not.

    I have been working at Quanticate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best place to learn
    Giving opportunities to participate in confrences and meetings like PhUSE
    Giving flexibility to employee
    Improved salary structure to meet the market level
    Management is taking new initiatives to grow bigger

    Cons

    Most of the training are in the form of videos rather than classroom trainings or webex trainings or mentor trainings
    Most of the documents given to employee are in paper version rather than e-version

    Advice to Management

    Please provide training in the form of classroom training, webex training or mentor training by utilising experts and SMEs in our organisation rather than videos
    Because videos can be watched in any website

    Pros

    You have an almost unlimited possibility to work from home.

    Good working atmosphere.

    Cons

    The salaries are lower than competitors'.

    I worked at Quanticate as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good learning opportunity. Ideal for freshers. Flexible schedule. Can grow fast and outdo yourself. Fun group of people to work with and good work culture

    Cons

    Extremely low pay. Poor benefits. Majority of the people are just looking to gain experience and switch at the drop of hat.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen your pockets if you want to hire and retain the best. Cannot expect to have good talent for poor pay.

    Pros

    Fantastic atmosphere, positive energy, wonderful people, a very stimulating experience, lots of diversity to learn from, lots of team work, support and experience sharing.
    A chance to work independently and grow experience.

    Cons

    Little support from the company to improve working conditions. Often fail to retain best talent. Focus on the cheapest work force (students, post-grads), which helps maintain the fresh and lively atmosphere, but doesn't promote and reward them enough to make them stay long-term.
