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

    Pros

    Great pay!
    You'll get a raise about every 6months
    Other colleagues and middle management were great friends outside of work!

    Cons

    They don't train you. You pretty much have to pick up the business and skills as you go. It's pretty much, sink or swim.

    The company is a "as need" basis. They will put under-qualified people in roles they are not prepared for nor will they train you on them. They'll throw you to their clients and clients expect you to be knowledgeable and help answer questions but you really have to know Q employees who have been here awhile to help answer questions.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are greedy and don't care about your clients or those below you. You guys play puppetmaster and just move pawns to get slaughtered by clients when they know nothing about the software nor oil & gas business.

    I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quorum provides excellent software products to the energy industry including upstream, midstream, transportation, utility and wind energy. Low oil prices affects the upstream industry but the other industries are still thriving.

    Cons

    There is no family atmosphere. Do your job and go home. Upper managment does not get out to meet subordinants.

    Advice to Management

    Upper managment should be more visible.

    Pros

    Good pay, upward mobility, young work environment, a lot of good experience.

    Cons

    Can be impossible to get help. When on a project people will just ignore you. Company over promises so we always look real bad to the client. Quorum takes on way too many jobs, stretching everybody thin. Upper management not grown in Quorum are under qualified, creating a mess in upstream. Worst HR team ever, isn't helpful at all...

    Advice to Management

    Please fix upstream. Stop selling functionality that doesn't work and making enhancements when the core product is broken. Hire an HR team that looks out for the employees.

    Pros

    As a college hire I was given training in cpp and sql development, skills that have served well with subsequent employers. I enjoyed the people I worked with and learned great project planning skills. Benefits were also great.

    Cons

    After working a Quorum for several years I realized that there is little chance for advancement past the senior consultant / manager level.

    I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    As a small company, you really get a chance to get deeply involved in the product support and implementations early on. You are given more responsibilities quickly as you're ready to take them on.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover, so it can be difficult to find people with expertise on certain products. The growth potential also plateaus with a limited number of large implementation projects and continuing education opportunities.
