    I have been working at Managed by Q full-time

    Pros

    The camaraderie and work ethic here is unbelievable. Everyone here is striving to make this company the best that it can be. It is just a great feeling to come into work every morning and actually enjoy going into work - something I had never felt before.

    The product they are building here is really going to be the next big thing in building management.

    Each and every manager here is extremely attentive and supportive as well. No micromanagement, but are still there every step of the way in support and leadership. Each team lead is what makes the company a joy to work for.

    The executive team is also extremely transparent about everything, which is fantastic. Those at the bottom of the totem poll even know what's going on at the top.

    Really excited about the furniture.

    Cons

    I honestly have no cons about this company.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I have been working at Managed by Q full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Q for the past year and a half has been the biggest gift, personally and professionally.

    I’ve worked at a couple of startups in different stages, but Q was different. What drew me to the position was that I’d have the opportunity to collaborate across teams, and TRULY have a voice. I know a lot of companies preach that, but Q lives it. It doesn’t matter what team you’re on, your opinion counts and the executive team is readily available to take feedback or just go to grab coffee.

    When I say I’ve had the opportunity to work with every team at Q, I mean it. It was a breath of fresh air to not be grouped into a bubble of who I should interact with based on what team I’m on. Everyone has something to learn from each other and how to make the business work better which is what makes it feel like more than a job. it feels like everyone has a major part in building something together.

    At a higher level, it feels good working for a company that lives its values through and though. It changes the way you work when you feel your company has a strong moral compass. Knowing I can go to the office everyday, have supportive co-workers(like I mean top 1% of the nicest, most accepting, friendly, smart people you will ever meet) and feel really good about what we’re doing for our clients and partners is priceless.

    Cons

    Sometimes in the summer the AC Is way too cold..

    Advice to Management

    Is everyday perfect? No definitely not, and structural changes can be hard even when they make sense for the business.. Keep pushing to simplify goals. Our business is complicated and it’s easier said than done, but clear goals motivate teams even more.

    I worked at Managed by Q full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid Training. Benefits I guess. Nice spot too.

    Cons

    It’s been a long time since I’ve been “hired” by Managed by the Q. But the unfortunate thing is that I have yet to start work or been placed anywhere.
    The communication is not that great and you’ll wait for a long time waiting for their response on where they want you to go.

    Advice to Management

    Work on those you’ve hired. Also hire the Admin. Assistants when the companys you work with needs it. It’s not cool having people wait around.

    Pros

    If you are a dedicated employee, you will get the hours you desire, and have ability to grow within the company.

    Cons

    The supervision is really lacking. Communication is not the strongest within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Find solution to the communication lull. Do not over load manager's beyond their capacity.

    Pros

    Paid training
    Hiring process is fast

    Cons

    It's been about 3 months that I was so called "Hired" by this company to be an administrative assistant. Don't be fooled. This is an outsourcing company. At first they mainly focused on cleaning services, but just recently spread to administrative. During training they will talk about how great their company is amazing with great opportunities and how they want you to stay for a long time, but I believe they are only gaining employees just to say on record their company is expanding. Constantly I have to contact them and ask if new clients have come in so I can start working, but it's the same thing each week. "We're currently working with XYZ and hopefully will get something soon. " I left my job hoping this company would be great, but I was dramatically wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding new employees every week and focus on the ones you have now.
