    I worked at Idea Integration full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There was a lot of creative and technical talent in the office while in my short stay there. A solid client list and more importantly, a casual and fun culture.

    There seemed to be diverse set of projects ongoing that spanned the digital spectrum especially around digital marketing. I felt like there was a lot of opportunity to take on different roles and a general openness to new tools and technology.

    Cons

    Timelines and deadlines were sometimes unrealistic. Career development was murky. Work life balance should be more than just "coach-speak".

    Metrics for management should be re-evaluated to align with a strategy of quality vs quantity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leverage the culture and focus more on quality over the number of billable hours. Look for better projects with higher margins and longer engagements with current client list.

    Pros

    Great place to grow both personally and professionally. Both the benefits and the culture support this.

    Cons

    Public company (parent org) so we have to play by those rules which feels like it can be limiting although overall it allows us stability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more structured mentorship and succession planning, or at least be more transparent about it.

    I worked at Idea Integration

    Pros

    Latest technology and relationship with Microsoft and overall client base

    Cons

    some client based work are primitive and not matching with the skill of the consultant, just for mere sake of billing time the consultants are placed in wrong work and wrong companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reduce the so called management staff and hire more technical consultant who make money, there are more non productive staff calling them as PM who does not bring productivity to the clients or companies but only cost to the company

    Pros

    Awesome projects. Projects are fast paced and packed with the latest technologies. Great compensation! Microsoft related projects are always large or medium in scale. Bonuses on billable hours is fair and lucrative.

    Cons

    Too much travel, But hey, it's technology consulting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With all this technology we implement for our customers when can we reinvest in our own? Also, remember, Your consultants are your product you sell to your customers. Don't forget to helpout the consultants on the road!

    Pros

    Great people, lively atmosphere, room for individuals.

    Cons

    Recent Adecco acquisition ruined Idea. Adecco is focused on general staff augmentation. Idea was based on professional staff augmentation and turnkey projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow Idea t odo what it does best: turnkey software projects using the latest and greatest technologies.
