    Lackluster Aerospace Position

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Performance Engineer  in  East Hartford, CT (US)
    Current Employee - Performance Engineer in East Hartford, CT (US)

    Pros

    There is a good environment and nice people. There are a set of structured company culture, goals, and direction.

    Cons

    -Not enough training
    -Too much coding for people who want to get their hands dirty
    -Work only based on billable time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people interested in aerospace/ engineering strong skills with programming so they may actually be an asset to the company. Those who have to catch up to speed in programming will do things too slowly for your benefit.

    Pros

    I would have to say the global culture is instilled the moment you become a QuESTian, and have enjoyed the experience of multi-national working.

    Cons

    New services are difficult to deliver across multiple sites, a key to success is to build the strength across global sites and this means a certain amount of burning candles at both ends!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Growth is going to arrive when you embrace the opportunities in all of the talented people you have in QuEST-Global, just don't miss great innovation or options because you have tried it before and it didn't work.

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Engineer  in  Bangalore (India)
    Former Employee - Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    Pros

    This is a company who will make you work in every technologies except your base technology(means the thing that you are hired for)
    I was hired for C++ but they put me in to documentation and later they put me in to junk work like code localization etc. Wasted 2 years.

    Cons

    9.30hrs inside office, shift times are strict,1:2sysem sharing, will forget your core technologies,hiring will be instant, just say dont have job to get recruited immediately, no employee satisfactions, PL/Tech leads dont have much experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    how do you expect people to change their technologies overnight and work in the projects that you are giving, What will be the output quality? What will be code standards? Employee satisfaction?

    Pros

    Your co-workers are very honest about the company that you are working for. The information they gave me allow me to think ahead and search for another position.

    Cons

    There is a issue with their payroll. They don not process their employees checks on time so you never receive it when its expected. When you do receive it, it is not the hours that you have worked.

    Frat house with zero communication, no training, and no room for true advancement

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Project Engineer  in  East Hartford, CT (US)
    Former Employee - Project Engineer in East Hartford, CT (US)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, Medical, dental and vision plans decently priced for value

    Cons

    PTO Policy recently switched - removing PTO days, adding holidays (fake benefit). Annual bonus capped at 2%, metrics rigged to never pay out full amount (this year less than 20% of the company metrics were met), Compensation easily 30% below market value, no bereavement time, punished for using Non-PTO (even when sick and out of the few PTO days given), management behaves like a fraternity - spends most of the time hanging out and chatting with each other in plain view of employees, only advancement is through management - leading to AWFUL managers with bro-like mentality and no leadership skills leading horribly underpaid employees with far more value to the company than they recognize, communication laughable at best of times, training is limited to very few hours since billable time is law, actual work done doesn't matter to them, being sheep and following orders blindly will get you ahead

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise salary to meet market value, give fair PTO schedule, offer alternate advancement routes than management, rewarding actual work done instead of just promoting your buddies, work on communication, add a real training schedule and allow for it in the budget, decide whether you want a frat house or a highly professional office - stop shooting only for the appearance of a professional workplace, pay attention to the work done instead of just your power trips, promote real leaders and managers instead of your friends
