    I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Jobs at "the Q" are ONLY for dewy-eyed new college graduates, with NO other work experience.

    Other assets:
    1. Parents in executive or otherwise influential positions at customers (or potential customers)
    2. Collegiate fraternity or sorority association

    Cons

    For anyone with actual work experience, the cons vastly outweigh any pros. As a matter of fact, there are nothing but cons for anyone with actual work experience, despite the obviously fake and likely coerced positive reviews you see posted on Glassdoor.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at the man or woman in the mirror.

    I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    -Quorum is a fast growing company and thus provides a lot of opportunity for people willing to take advantage of it (especially if you're a more technically minded person)
    -The company is making a big investment in upgrading their technology stack
    -Growing in both number of clients and number of products
    -Good forward vision from executive team
    -A good open door policy where any level can be approached
    -They treat well employees that perform and provide very competitive pay

    Cons

    -A lot of turn-over at the lower ranks so we constantly having to deal with untrained new hires being put on projects
    -Need to provide more up to date and relevant training to new hires during month long training program
    -Going through growth growing pains (increasing amount of red-tape and management overhead)

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep as much of our culture as possible as the company grows and resist the temptation to create layers upon layers of management and red-tape.

    Pros

    Excellent place to work if you enjoy being challenged and desire the opportunity to take on responsibility. It's great to be surrounded by other highly motivated and intelligent people.

    Cons

    Fast paced work environment with high expectations, may not be right for everyone. Sometimes the pressure that comes from the high expectations adds to overall job stress.

    Pros

    Challenging, tough work. Mastery of functional and technical skills are appreciated and employees are rewarded with promotions and/or additional responsibilities.

    Cons

    If you don't like tough, challenging work, this place is definitely not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue growing the company and rewarding employees with new opportunities.

    Pros

    The only positive thing I can say about Quorum is that you will get to work closely with some really good people. From the Manager level down there are a lot of genuinely nice and dedicated young folks.

    Cons

    The company suffers from ruthlessly inept management. I was there 2 years and not once did I see a picture of the CEO, much less an in person meeting. Quorums' problem is that all upper management is inbred and invisible, with no meaningful experience outside of Quorum. As a consequence they have very limited skills when it comes to managing people.

    Another big problem is the disconnect between the sales teams and the folks who have to deploy the systems. The sales team will estimate a job at X hours while the folks doing the implementation need at least 2-3X to complete the work. This derives from the fact that (1) there are no standardized tool sets in place for configuring their products, thus everything is done from scratch, (2) they often throw inexperienced resources into the mix and hope they can accomplish the task, and (3) they have an attitude that all projects are time and material projects, thus they have little commitment to honoring the original estimate.

    The system, as they have designed it, is unsustainable. It is too resource intensive on the front end for deployment and too resource intensive on the back end for support. That type of model only works when a boom is going on, but will collapse when the market takes a downward turn.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise the outside owners that they need to replace 100% of the C-Suite with people who understand how a software company should be organized and run and who value the employees which make the operation possible. Quorum does pay well however they have an attitude that high pay absolves them of all other responsibilities. It doesn't!
