    I have been working at Quantum Reservoir Impact full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked in India, Canada and USA for the last 16 years for several companies. Most of them are decent to best companies. In my view, QRI is one of the best companies that I have ever worked for in my life. I have been working at QRI for the last four years. The company’s size allows you to become expert in different areas rather than restricted to just one area of professional development. You will be a well-rounded...

    Pros

    Management is very personable and treat you like family. The Company has a great vision and hires very competent people to be a part of their team. The culture is supportive of team work and work life balance. We are in a growth phase and definitely have a positive name and impact in the industry.

    Cons

    Limited training opportunities, limited upward mobility and limited recognition, especially for support staff.

    Advice to Management

    In a turbulent Oil and Gas Industry, we have done well. We have managed to sail through and now are looking for growth opportunities. Please maintain the same culture and work environment. I am concerned that with higher than usual turnover, the new people coming in might not hold the same values. Please recognize that the support staff are working hard even during tough times!

    I have been working at Quantum Reservoir Impact full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Young professionals are involved in various types of reservoir management projects for large national oil companies, which is a rare opportunity for new graduates to grow fast and cumulate some experiences and networks in all aspects of O&G upstream in short period. Top-down thinking is the core of the company philosophy. Young professionals trained in this way may differentiate themselves from their peers in their...

    Cons

    Company culture is probably influenced by the senior executives’ Middle East early career: Micromanagement is very common; Paternalism is part of the company’s management culture; Nepotism is everywhere and chief officer claimed explicitly it is okay when questioned. While the company is trying to sell its technology capability, technology development keeps being derailed by senior executives who know little new tech...

    Advice to Management

    Keeping the business on what you are good at, a consulting firm can also be very successful. Admit you don’t understand everything. Don’t thinking about hiring someone who understands to help you, because you are also not good at identifying who understands or not. Time to stop nepotism, time to change HR management, time to be more transparent to your own employees.

    Work is cyclical, and like most accounting departments, month-end closeout is sometimes strenuous.

    I have been working at Quantum Reservoir Impact full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    QRI has a stimulating and motivating work environment. It's a relatively small company, so you have the opportunity to collaborate with different teams and senior management. QRI is also a very diverse company, which gives a multitude of perspectives both culturally and professionally. Quantum Culture and Community Outreach continues to grow and evolve with more participation than ever before.

    Cons

    As there are pros to a small company, it may not be the best fit for certain people. With smaller teams, your responsibilities continually increase and you may be required to juggle a variety of tasks in a very fast paced environment without much guidance.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of closed door discussions which gives people the opportunity to make their own assumptions (good or bad). Keeping communication more open and frequent would be very helpful.

    Pros

    At QRI, you have the opportunity to collaborate and work with truly talented people - the best in the industry. The company offers generous wages and benefits, and is quick to recognize and reward employee accomplishments. The workplace culture is energetic and exciting - it's still a relatively small company and we're building it together. You can make an impact here. Being part of the QRI family means working...

    Pros

    Great Company to work for. Great benefits, financial & fringe. Work life-balance and professionalism worthy of a mention. The company really cares and takes great care of its people.

    Cons

    Upword mobility is a struggle, but to be expected from a smaller organization.

    Advice to Management

    Become more market aggressive & even more antifragile.

    I worked at Quantum Reservoir Impact full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary and compensation used to be good ... some great technical staff work here, but the brighter ones are leaving ... Good coffee, though.

    Cons

    Delusional and egotistical executives are the real problem at QRI. They have no focus, no coherent strategy, micromanage everything, and instead of listening to staff who are on the front lines and experts in their own rights, they proceed to make directives and judgements that are not in synch with reality.

    Advice to Management

    You had great employees that once believed in the vision of the company, but you have trampled on their commitment and enthusiasm by ignoring them because "you know best". There is no career development at QRI, and anyone who stays more than a couple years stagnates as the industry moves onward.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback to QRI’s management team. We value your input; and we understand your frustration. As you well know, in 2015 the price of oil dropped precipitously, which prompted swift and decisive action by Management. To prevent lay-offs and ...

    I have been working at Quantum Reservoir Impact full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The technical challenges range from the difficult to the severe, and the technical teams assembled are world class, including many prominent industry figures. Bonus + equity + 401k match means compensation is slightly above average; it’s foreign service premium where QRI really stands out, and you can make lots of $$$. Overseas rotations are tough, but comp time is generous, and they try hard to accommodate those with...

    Cons

    It’s a small company with big ideas, and corresponding egos – corporate culture is friendly but gossipy, even political. Our foreign assignments, although highly rewarded and fabulous for career development, are not for the thin-skinned. Chaos management is everything; our clients need our help for a reason. We’re dropped into the front lines, and must navigate the fog of war. And then add the trapeze act between...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize those who perform in spite of the odds, and who keep the $$$ flowing… bigger bonuses wouldn't be unwelcome. Be careful about announcing new projects until there’s ink on paper, to avoid exposure to non-constructive criticism when things get complicated. And please resist the temptation to pinch pennies on the front lines – to control costs, start with some spring cleaning at home . Overall, QRI...
