    I have been working at Quanticate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    So many new processes are being implemented. New salary ladders, better understanding of promotions and career prospects. The company is starting to really think about employees

    Cons

    Descsion making is a lengthy process as it has to go right to the top!

    Advice to Management

    it would be good if managers could make their own decisions without waiting for approval from the top.

    I have been working at Quanticate (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quanticate is a great place to work with a real focus on people and engagement led by the Executive Management Team. We are a global team who work in partnership together to deliver excellent results and there is a real sense of one team with accessible managers who listen to our suggestions and involve us. There is a real commitment to change and continuous improvement and I feel that I can make a positive difference. There is a lot of flexibility in terms of working hours and working from home and a lot of support in place if anyone has any issues or problems. Team work and collaboration are real strengths and I really enjoy working at Quanticate.

    Cons

    Every day is busy and a challenge and whilst for me this is a positive there is a real requirement to multi task and continually re-balance priorities. I feel that the company is making positive changes which will make Quanticate an even better place to work but that there is a tendency for some people to be negative as they find change difficult - I think Quanticate should look at change management training and development across the team to support this.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with all of the good work you are doing and build on the new initiatives.

    I have been working at Quanticate full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Senior Management are trying to improve things and the recent quarterly update showed there is a positive plan that they are working to.

    Cons

    Some employees may not have worked in other companies and may think the grass is greener elsewhere but I think Quanticate is better than most.

    Advice to Management

    There is still a feeling that business comes before staff and it would be good to do things to change this perception Staff are the lifeblood and future and need to be treated as such.

    Pros

    + Diverse range of projects.
    + Cooperative work environment with encouragement to acknowledge the efforts of others.
    + Fantastic office location in Edinburgh.
    + Regular internal knowledge share sessions.
    + Flexible working (home based, part-time etc are options).

    Cons

    - We have lost lots of great staff.
    - Management focused on budgets and time sheeting every detail.
    - Promotions can take a long time - there are great people who have 5-10 years experience and still not at "Senior" level and 20+ years experience and still not at "Principal" level.
    - The emphasis in "Leading" projects has shifted to checking staff have completed the 2 parallel time sheet systems properly - instead of effectively collaborating with the client, to understand the project and make sure a quality delivery is made.
    - Computer systems a bit dated - takes 15 minutes to log on.
    - No annual pay increases to keep up with inflation.
    - Insufficient improvement of processes and proactive involvement by QA.
    - Upper management give the impression that they don't trust their staff (even heads of function).
    - If weekend working is required you won't get paid for the first 5 hours work.
    - Issues with generic templates in Word and power point making some work frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving processes and quality.
    Value and reward your staff.

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

    Pros

    Friendly environment with a focus on customer satisfaction and employee engagement. Flexible hours and working patterns are routine, and a wide variety of projects to work on make every day different from one another.

    Cons

    Promotions and salary ladders are a bit obscure entities, hopefully this will change. Recognition of work done is somehow lacking, efforts have been put in place to improve this but the road to improvement is long.

    Advice to Management

    Allow some more flexibility for overtime, many times employees have to work unplanned longer hours to meet client requests but these are never returned and can be frustrating.

    Pros

    Senior staff members recognised as thought leaders in their fields
    Highly respected by clients for quality of outputs and great customer service
    Innovative workplace where new service offerings are continually developed
    Opportunity to work with high profile companies on interesting and technically challenging projects
    Expanding client and project base presents a very positive outlook for 2014 and beyond
    Plenty of opportunity for advancement - talent is recognised and developed
    Friendly professional environment

    Cons

    Some of the cons mentioned by others are being dealt with, for example central points in offices for staff feedback and suggestions, to aid information sharing and help bring good ideas to the fore.

    Advice to Management

    Continue attracting the top biometrics talent to the teams in order to support the ongoing projects, which will help with 2014 expansion plans.

    Pros

    Always has been a nice place to work
    Now seeing a much clearer direction and strategy
    Much better communication from management - recent blogs have helped make strategy clear
    Good career opportunities and progression
    Seeing lots of growth and wins - which makes the future look bright
    Culture and values are now much clearer to me

    Cons

    Historically been unclear in terms of company direction and strategy but improving significantly
    Training opportunities could be better to help enhance my skills

    Advice to Management

    Really impressed by the way the company has changed in recent years - market perception, messaging and strategy. There is a feeling in the company that Quanticate is a global leader in its field, which was not felt before. The Intranet could be improved though to make communication even better.
