    I have been working at Q4 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Q4 truly values its employees, provides a real professional and personal development. The company does believe in its mission statement, which is so impactful. The senior leadership team cares for their employees, always putting us first. The focus on work life balance is incredible. The energy of the work environment is upbeat and inclusive. There is also frequent internal promotions for pre-existing employees, which I feel is super valuable. From other side, the workplace is very fun, I really enjoy all companies events, which are hold constantly. Teams host also employee appreciation events like lunches and team building events which help keep the team unified. Even now, while WFH due to quarantine, company provides people with many different interesting virtual events, presentations, games, contests etc. what give people better understanding of the situation and much happier feelings. While working from the office ( before pandemic) the kitchen in the office was always fully stocked with cool healthy snacks. I feel calm and busy in the office and able to get my work done and enjoy my day. Q4 is a fantastic place to work, consisting of transparent leadership and an incredible company culture.

    I have been working at Q4 full-time

    Pros

    - Top-down transparency - Collaborative workforce (regardless of title or dept) - Growth & development are top of mind for leaders - Workforce appreciation through weekly socials, themed events, comprehensive benefits, quarterly awards, etc.

    Cons

    - NOT REALLY A CON: Growing agile company means there is always something to be done. Must be of the ambitious/go-getter personality who doesn't hesitate to roll up his/her sleeves.

    I have been working at Q4 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are great. There is a lot of effort and investment put into keeping employees happy (office environment, social events, benefits, culture). Q4 is in a stage of huge growth and I feel like they've done a good job at sharing the strategy and game plan with the whole company. Other companies I've worked for that's all kept private for managers. Q4 is established and successful but still runs (in a good way) like a start up. There's flexibility to change, especially if it's a good idea that makes sense. Darrell the CEO is really inspiring.

    Cons

    - Career growth opportunity exists, but it's sometimes hard to see the possibilities and what the path for me would be. My manager is very open to help/chat about this, but I'd like a way to see where I can grow in the future.

    I have been working at Q4 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people , fun office, space to 'breathe' and bring in new ideas, understanding managers. The culture is unbeatable. So much to learn and you are given the freedom to work in a way that suits you. Work life integration is valued. Opinions matter. Unlimited PTO. Trust and confidence in peers. Senior management are approachable and respectful no matter what your title or how junior you are. You will feel empowered.

    Cons

    Open concept which can sometimes be distracting but not really a con. Can't think of anything else.

    Pros

    Good overall company purpose and vision. Good clients. Good office location. Good socials.

    Cons

    Toxic atmosphere. Lots of good people leave or are forced out because company can’t get act together. Senior management inexperienced especially in communications. Management has unreasonable expectations of employees. They want 24/7 attention on our clients. In earnings we're worked into the ground, no time to go home or leave desk. Zero loyalty to employees. Lots of churn so they don’t have to pay people with experience.
