    I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. as an intern

    Pros

    You are grossly overpaid for the work.

    Cons

    Balancing school and work can be tough, especially during test weeks. They started becoming less lenient on hours before I left.

    They also did not like students studying, regardless of if you were not assigned a division order to work on. This was a deal breaker for me, students should be aware of this.

    I found the work relatively meaningless and very boring. At times I thought my boss didn't even know what he was doing and felt the same way as I did.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to hire part time students, be wary of changes in schedule.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Actually really enjoyed working at the Q. Made some life-long friends and developed relationships. This company is a great diving board into the industry for recent grads and can put you on a fast path to getting a job with a larger oil and gas company. It's a really good means to an end.

    Cons

    Methodology at this company definitely fits a particular personality. Many people crack under the pressure. This company doesn't work well for entitled millennials even though that is the majority of their workforce. Work/life balance is almost non-existent, and there is a constant competition as to who is sacrificing more to the company. Further, the benefits are lackluster.

    Advice to Management

    It is not cost effective to operate in the vein of mass producing technology consultants. You are constantly over hiring people because you know that the retention rate is low. Rather than stretching loyal and dependable employees thin by having them do their own tasks as well as train multiple new hires at the same time, develop your new hires and focus your time, effort, and resources on retaining them and continuing to grow them. For example, if this company offered 9/80s or better vacation / hours, I feel confident that less of their employees would constantly be leaving.
