Cons: work days with no production.
Production of hard drives varied from day to day. Making for short to long work hours. Knowing that what product went through my station was 100% quality which earned me pay raises and great pride in my work.

Pros: the benefits; people
nice and quiet place to get work accomplished. Learned quite a bit but with lots of different hats. For the most part management was great and allowed you to work independently. Great co-workers. The hardest part of my job was becoming too efficient at it which gave me a lot more time for other things to do and I should've taken more of advantage of – more... it.

Operations (Current Employee), Colorado Springs, Colorado – August 6, 2013
Pros: benefits, flexible time
Cons: poor executive management
Culturally it is wonderful, with lots of intelligent workers. The executives make decisions based on their personal bottom line though, never caring how it impacts the employees. Example, CEO just gave himself a raise and laid off 190 people in the same month. The lay off decisions do not seem to be made with any sort of research into the positions – more... or the people, but at a level so high the impact is huge while they remain aloof. The company seems to be positioning itself to sell. Great benefits and pay, no job security or appreciation for work done. – less
Repair Technician IV (Current Employee), Colorado Springs, CO – August 5, 2013
Pros: good benefits plans
Cons: outsourcing operation department jobs
Quantum is not a bad place to work, they believe in continuous improvement and understand the value of lean manufacturing. Quantum allows outside-the-box thinking and h open door policy for employees to communicate with upper levels of management without hindrance from direct supervisors. It is a shame that jobs are being outsourced to other companies
