    Pros

    Flexible work-hours, casual dress-code, and easy to reach management, independent working environment, and decent paid-time off from work.

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunities, no mentorship programs, no 401-K matching from the company, and the company overall lacks any time of 'workplace culture.' The employees can be rather cold and it takes a while to feel welcomed.

    Advice to Management

    The lack of growth at the company is concerning, which is possibly why the turn-over rate at Quantum seems to be so high. Setting up a mentorship program at the company would also help retain talent, especially younger, less experienced talent.

    Pros

    Lower management gave employees good treatment, upper management kind of gives you the run-around on layoffs.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs, doesn't seem to be a long term place unless you want to wait for your severance

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about the plans to the employees. CEO's talk the talk but seem to lack on follow through.
