Analyst (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – January 2, 2017
The companies organization has changed multiple times since I arrived. Many people (mainly higher up production staff) have left over the past 1-2 years with no real replacements being named. The reasons that people are leaving are poor senior management and low pay. We get paid on the low end for our industry and people know it. When employees go looking for new jobs and receive offers, the company is very reluctant to match or try to compete with those offers thus seeing talented people walk out the door. The benefits are mediocre at best, with high deductible health insurance plans, and a 401k that I have yet to see them match in anyway. I work hard but feel like the senior leadership team is so out of touch with what we're doing here.

Quantum is a great company and I would be happy to stay on longer term but I had to relocate. The skills and talent of people at the company is impressive and the culture is great. Only drawback is the high fluctuation in work load but that's hardly and thing that can be predicted 100% of the time.
Good culture, comfortable environment, solid work ethic
High workload fluctuation, less opportunity to advance

The company is owned by a private equity firm which seeks to maximize short-term profit in order to sell the firm to another private equity firm. This cycle can only result in continual churn of priorities, management, and workforce. They have zero concern for the people they employ, and will lie to your face until the day they lay you off.
LiDAR Technician (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI – June 30, 2015
Working in Aerial Survey has it's ups and downs. Be prepared to be on the road a minimum of 3 weeks at a time. Management really cares about the employees and will work with your scheduling needs the best they can, but expect them to work you HARD out in the field. This is a very, very difficult job to maintain if you have a family life, but I've known several employees that have pulled it off successfully. If you enjoy technology and like the challenge and excitement of flying all across the country and being prepared to move at the drop of a hat, then this might just be the adventure for you!
Fun work place before merger, then mass layoff of over 70% of staff
Data Assurance Specialist / IT Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI – February 21, 2015
Not much to say about this company other than it was a fine business prior to merging with to other similar businesses. After merger, 70-80% of production (i.e. Geo-Spatial Data) was either moved to the other two new businesses or off-shored to India via the new CEO who is from India. Almost all production employees were let go along with support staff and most of the production managers. So, if I were to truly rate "Job Security/Advancement", I would not even give it one (1) Star; however, that was the lowest I could select on the ratings scale here on Indeed.com
