Good for two kinds of people...
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) – Windsor, CT – July 14, 2018
QuEST is a good place for two kinds of people:
1) Entry level engineers who are looking to gain some experience
2) Experienced retirees who want so supplement their retirement
Working as outsource labor, you are expected to do competent, if not spectacular, work. The bar is set pretty low to do a good job, and you can only bill the customer for 40 hours of work per week. Thus, the job is pretty low stress, but the pay is well below average. Lots of entry level people work for QuEST for a couple of years, then go to work for the customer for much higher pay.
The HR department is based in India, which means very rigid decision making and inscrutable explanations. Raises and promotions are annual, set by people on the other side of the planet, with limited flexibility given to your actual managers.
