    Pros

    Tunnel Access, Good location, will work with lots of people your age if you are a very recent grad, good way to learn if you enjoy the technical aspect. Lots of opportunities to learn by doing things the wrong way first.

    Cons

    Not a consulting position. You will hear it is over and over but once you are there you will find out two things. 1) You will be required to eat, sleep and live in code. 2) How fast you can put a new resume together.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people and be truthful to both employees and clients.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, opportunities to move up the ladder (most employees make senior consultant in 2-3 years), lot of smart and kind people around the office.

    Cons

    *BEWARE OF HR, THEY WILL SAY YOU QUIT IF YOU GOT FIRED, MEANING NO UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS* Also if you get into either the Support or Development horizontal, you aren't really a consultant. Try to get into the Implementation horizontal if you can. Also, don't expect in depth training to prepare you for your projects. The company kind of just throws you in there and expects you to figure out things on your own. Some people can handle it, some people can't and crack under the pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest during your recruiting process, let prospective employees know that you actually look for software developers and customer support reps as well, it's misleading when everyone thinks they're going to be a consultant and ends doing work they never thought they'd do.

    Pros

    1. Good first job for recent computer science graduates. Good learning experience
    2. Willing to let inexperienced programmers learn on the job. Computer science degree is helpful but not required.

    Cons

    Programming may not be interesting for experienced software developers. Lots of client-specific code and one-offs. Clients love the highly configurable software, but may not be interesting for the software developer

    Pros

    Get experience in oil and gas and technology. Responsibilities early on. Training program. Young workplace.

    Cons

    No company culture or work-life balance. Always an abundance of work because of the high turnover and inexperience of workers in the company. Most people leave within 2-4 years at best, the rest of the company has been there 10 plus years.

    Advice to Management

    Give something back to your employees

    Pros

    -Quorum is a fast growing company and thus provides a lot of opportunity for people willing to take advantage of it (especially if you're a more technically minded person)
    -The company is making a big investment in upgrading their technology stack
    -Growing in both number of clients and number of products
    -Good forward vision from executive team
    -A good open door policy where any level can be approached
    -They treat well employees that perform and provide very competitive pay

    Cons

    -A lot of turn-over at the lower ranks so we constantly having to deal with untrained new hires being put on projects
    -Need to provide more up to date and relevant training to new hires during month long training program
    -Going through growth growing pains (increasing amount of red-tape and management overhead)

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep as much of our culture as possible as the company grows and resist the temptation to create layers upon layers of management and red-tape.
