    Pros

    Good Business Model - averages out revenue swings that occur in normal consulting model
    Very Loose management styles.
    Good work life balance encouraged.

    Cons

    Lack of knowledge shared among workers.
    Lack of management presence to guide workflows
    Somewhat static positions long wait times to move positions with in the firm

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment where workers can assemble and solve work related problems that they are intriniscally excited about. There are aspects of the industry that can be more exciting to work on but are unaccessible for a given position to contribute to those solutions.

    Pros

    Don't seem to have layoffs once a year like some other tech copmanies.

    Cons

    No groups or divisions that are immune to travel but they seem to work with you if you have an issue that comes up that requires you to stay local for a short time.

    Pros

    Quorum provides a great launchpad for individuals and professionals wanting to learn about the IT as well as energy industries.

    Cons

    Quorum does not have many if any downsides at all, since a down for one individual may be a pro for others. The consensus on a potential con are strict estimate deadlines. However, this can be seen across the consulting industry and is not limited to Quorum.

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

    Pros

    Company culture is similar to small company where everyone is very close. With the company growth, the structure is becoming more solid with well-defined processes being implemented. Because of this, there is a lot of opportunity for folks to contribute to the structure. Your voice is heard and performance is recognized with a very comprehensive 6 month evaluation program. Great compensation for those that perform. Above average compensation for even those that are not top performers.

    Cons

    Typical with consulting companies with higher turnover. Depending on your role, there may be a lot of travel but most of the clients are Houston-based. Overall, very young group.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Quorum, like many companies in professional services, provides opportunities that are both diverse and frequently unachievable in industry jobs. You will be pressed to take more and more responsibility. If things go well and you are willing to work hard, you will find yourself with titles that few of your university peers have achieved. Salary seems very competitive.

    The company is doing very well in the marketplace. While certain product areas still have formidable competition, Quorum is ultimately winning more software selections than they lose.

    Cons

    Company is now owned by private equity and several members of the executive team have changed. Corporate objectives seem to have intensified and the strategies to meet the objectives seem to be a little naive. Management is constantly reinventing the wheel.

    Good environment to learn technical side of oil and gas software
    Take "non-tech" people and give them time to learn technical skills to apply to client solutions

    Cons

    Very little guidance when first starting out
    New employees can feel lost due to being away from the rest of your team that may be travelling
