QBS had some good people there overall.

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLearned a lot while I was there. Was able to grow and strengthen some of my skills.

ConsManagement cant seem to figure out how to get it all to work. High turnover. Work hours -- require you BILL 9 hours daily.

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to your employees. They are not happy with all the changes you keep making. And just because someone has been there and is a senior person does NOT make them a good manager!!!!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Quorum did not make such a great impression for me due to group arrangements.

Consultant (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-time for less than a year

ProsVery large learning curve especially for entry level employees.

ConsNot very diverse yet (growing company) and people don't always mingle outside their work group of associates or friends.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreating some fun activities such as incentives etc. could help employees perform better and create room for associates to meet each other. I don't believe there is enough room for social activities as an entire company. Noticed many people who haven't met each other but have been working in the company for 2 or more years.

Learn, do good work, and find a better opportunity else where

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)

I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

Pros- Very good opportunities for people to learn
- Most of the people are nice
- Good compensation
- Good perks if you enjoy work travel

Cons- Limited appreciation from senior management and middle managers
- Too many inexperienced people and lack of working managers for mentoring
- Long hours
- A relatively stressful work environment

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your people, not only limited to compensation per se, but say encouraging words in the hallway, trained your managers to appreciate the employees, etc. Sometimes small things can have multiplying effects. Understand your people's needs and the situations, don't just focus on chargeability. Communicate to employees more frequently, a lot of time people just don't know the direction and the future of the company.

Small company. Hire on people that has nothing to do with their job. Expanding faster than they can take on.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

ProsThe people are nice. They have an intro course for all new consultants to learn how to do their job. Can easily transfer offices.

ConsIt is in a bad location. You have to meet people on your own. The benefits not great. They need to improve on processes.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey should hire individuals that pertain to their majors. Should also look into improving how things are done. Growing faster than they can handle.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Quorum is an information technology firm that offers software to the natural gas industry.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

ProsIt is a good place for recent college graduates to learn about the natural gas industry and about the technology that is utilized to manage the business. For experienced people, the company allows flexibility for those seeking a decent work-life balance, and contribute.

ConsWork can become tedious for those anxious to grow faster or with A personalities. Work focus is narrow and training limited to two areas - during on-boarding and as needed on-the-job only. As with any technology company, employee turnover is high and job growth limited to projects available.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is not expected for the senior management to listen to the employees in general. Management is either the founding team, or people that worked with them at the previous consulting firm.
