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

    Pros

    1. Quickly obtain high levels of responsibility
    2. Merit based promotions and pay raise. Overall, competitive pay
    3. Few work politics
    4. Quorum is gaining market share in the Upstream area. Already industry leader in Land and Midstream

    Cons

    1. Growing company leaves areas for improvement. On the flip side, there is no large amounts of red tape or hoops to jump through to do your own job.
    2. In 2014, Quorum was overloaded with new deals. this is tough in the short term, but great in the long term

    Note: many of the reviews on here seem to be from individuals who have never had experience in the real world. If you are complaining about 50 hour weeks, you should go get a government job, and not be looking to be a consultant. Company wide, the hours average to about 9 hours a day. Good luck finding anything cushier at the Big Four.

    Advice to Management

    1. Improve recruiting to prevent the hiring of unmotivated individuals who are afraid of being committed to their job.
    2. Be more strategic with clients to ensure long-term client relationships
    3. Focus on retention of good employees
    4. Emphasize more company culture so that young employees are able to better identify with their career

    Pros

    Leading provider of technology solutions in the energy industry. Fast paced, rapid career progression. Team atmosphere with healthy culture, growth mentality. Invest in its people and products with a long term focus.

    Cons

    More technology focused than some coming in may realize. Work life balance is typical for industry, but may be difficult for some. Young demographic is a plus but also a challenge to bring up to speed quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Need to remain competitive with the rest of the technology marketplace by offering a better overall compensation package. Look at rewarding team members who have longest tenure - those that helped build the foundation of the company.

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

    Pros

    Quorum truly is a meritocracy. If you work hard and authentically, you will be rewarded with new opportunities and compensation. There are positions with travel and without travel depending on your needs. Company leadership truly is involved and aware of what's going on at all levels. There are several strong leaders who are willing to invest their time mentoring younger resources. The people at Quorum are top notch.

    Cons

    Sometimes the workload on projects can be challenging. Management tries to put people in the best place to succeed, but project conditions and deadlines can require long hours and learning new things quickly. If the proper support isn't available, this can be difficult. All consulting roles require a level of technical work, and this can be difficult for some.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure younger resources are prepared for any roles that they're assigned to and continue to invest in people.

    Pros

    - Great place to start a career in energy and technology
    - Learn client's business through building and maintaining the software that runs it
    - Opportunities to move ahead quickly and take on new responsibility as you earn it
    - Most roles interact directly with customers and allow you to build people and technology skills quickly.
    - New products and next generation products are moving to the web and mobil platform. Exciting product direction

    Cons

    - Not a great place to be if you do not have a motor
    - Will require everyone to become a programmer and have at least basic technology skills to succeed
    - Demanding situations and roles can be stressful

    Advice to Management

    Focusing on culture and team building are critical as the company grows and gets younger. New user centered product direction and dedicated software teams are a good start in more clearly focusing on product quality to make everyone's work more satisfying.

    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.
