Is this question really from Manhattan Gmat?
"many" is not quite solid reason as this word implies quite a range of possible value.

(A) Many prospective hires at QuestCorp have expressed that their compensation is negotiable. ->park it
(B) All employees at QuestCorp's main competitor recently received a large and well-publicized raise. -> we are not worried about the main competitor
(C) Many departing employees have cited abusive managers and unsafe factories
as responsible for their decision to leave QuestCorp. -> sounds good - park it
(D) Studies indicate that compensation is one of several important factors regarding the decision to switch jobs. -> this is a very generic statement for the problem at hand, which is very specific to the QuestCorp
(E)QuestCorp has recently initiated a review of its internal policies, including those regarding working conditions and employee promotions. -> reviews can be done even with no policies at hand - this option is irrelevant to our goal

B/w A and C - C more closely resembles the the goal - to strengthen the conclusion "the departures have been caused by employee dissatisfaction with poor working conditions and the absence of advancement opportunities"

The argument is saying Poor working conditions + absence of advanced opportunities ---> Departure of employees.

We need to strengthen this.

C is saying the same thing that yes employees have declared that the managers are not good and the factories are not safe. This means the conclusion drawn is true based on what the premises were given. Hence, C is the strengthener, We don't need all the points to prove why they are leaving. Even when we got one of the reasons out of those we started, we are strengthening our conclusion.

E cannot be the correct answer as it weakens our conclusion. If the company has already initiated improving the things, the the conclusion drawn would be weaken. It would mean there is something else for the employees to move and not what has been stated.
