    Pros

    You will learn so much, and have many opportunities for professional development in very little time. Excellent introduction to an interesting niche.

    Cons

    Some have differing opportunities, depending on what project you work on. Some folks spend years working on the same client, which can definitely make growth opportunities challenging. Conversely, if you have the opportunity to work on many projects and perform well, you will get stretched thin. Very thin.

    Compensation was complicated because of the downturn in the energy industry. Although once the company turned around the increase in work was not well represented in compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more transparent with communication and company direction. Many lower-level people view Management goals as dictum from high above with little basis in everyday realities of the work.

    Pros

    Quorum does a good job at giving you an opportunity to take on more responsibility with projects and develop your skills as a programmer and a consultant.

    Cons

    They don't do a very good job with office culture. The weight of deadlines and development hours create an environment where you feel obligated to stay longer and work harder than expected.

    They don't do a good job of encouraging office comaraderie.

    Advice to Management

    Do more promotion of office culture. Encourage happy hours and team building events

    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.

    Pros

    Houston or Dallas is OK
    Great place to start your career or pick up experience
    Strong technical development

    Cons

    Long Long hours with billing at least 45 hours per week
    Lateral moves between offices will slow career growth
    Limited ability to move to delivery term
    Politics

    Advice to Management

    You need a repository for engagement history with each client as well as background info on the client's business. Consultants should be allotted time for specific training rather figuring out how to complete projects in the dark.
