    I worked at Quantum Reservoir Impact full-time (More than 5 years)

    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 (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 ... More

    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 families.

    Performance is recognized. The executives are warm, open-door types who strive to make QRI into a big family, even as the company expands – the CEO knows everyone’s name, and their spouse’s name.

    The company keeps growing, with a client and revenue base that has expanded every year, and a wide array of projects to work on. Our bread-and-butter is reservoir management consulting for large clients overseas; we also do mergers and acquisitions, strategic consulting, plus our own operations.

    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 work travel and family life.

    If you can distill order from chaos, offer clarity in the midst of mayhem, then you are a hero who will be recognized and rewarded. If you crave a structured work environment with lots of supervision, then you’re better off at an IOC.

    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 is a great thing to be a part of, and those of us who've been on this journey will be talking about it for years to come.

    I have been working at Quantum Reservoir Impact full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The compensation structure is really good. I think a lot of people work for QRI mainly for the money. Free parking, snacks, bus, gym, 401K matching, others. There are many and technical people. It moves fast as it is still smal.

    Cons

    Management appears incompetent. Some good people have already left due to poor career options for younger professionals. Travel is a lot also so there's quite a bit of burn out. The company is still family run in many ways and you see nepotism Not a lot of client diversity so this makes the company more vulnerable to oil and gas cycles.

    Advice to Management

    I Listen to us, your employees and your mid management. Be forthright with what you say and do. Do not white wash bad things but instead be proactive.

    Pros

    Potential to make a lot of money given compensation system.
    Great technical staff with which to work and share ideas.
    Many of the projects are interesting.

    Cons

    Senior management should just stay home, they add no value whatsoever.
    Management shoots only from the hip and never ever has asked advice from any of the staff.
    Bonuses are very small compared to much of the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously develop a five year plan of action by soliciting feedback from the staff. At $100 oil we can replace our salaries in days, you on the other hand can not, therefore it would serve you well to listen to those that keep your business running.

    Pros

    Excellent office culture, friendly people, competent people. Everyone wants to contribute and works hard to help each other. Everyone is an expert.

    Cons

    With this many thoroughbreds, there's bound to be an occasional conflict. The work schedules can be grueling. Constant rotations between field and office take a toll on personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the work schedules, insist that employees take time off to be with their families. You're doing a great job overall.
