Above average people, below average compensation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at iBasis full-time for more than 8 years

ProsiBasis has good people, good culture, and a pleasant work environment.

ConsCompensation is sorely lacking, employees are unable to focus as there are too many things on their plates. There is a lack of career path, and lack of guidance in achieving what path may be there.

Pay does not encourage staying with company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at iBasis

ProsLaid back atmosphere with good amount of vacation time. Company likes to get different insights from indivuals in different departmants.

ConsLow pay. Getting promoted from within does not pay. Typically taking on more yet not being properly compensated.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep talent within the company!

Low Pay, nowhere to advance

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Burlington, MA

I have been working at iBasis

ProsOpen to ideas and individual contributions, very flexible and good working atmosphere. Many new technologies used throughout the company. Probably one of the better jobs to round out your job experience and skill-sets.

ConsPay is low and not competitive. No bonuses have been given out since the KPN merger, little to no room to advance.

Raises are limited to small cost of living raises unless you are promoted. Current trend is maximizing profits without hiring more help, even though the workload has about tripled since the merger. Company has bled some good talent the past few years, but upper management said it was normal.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is little incentive for experienced talent to stay in the company. My advise is to compensate your senior personnel better, give out some bonuses and have some sort of company payed training to further education.

T-Shirts and iBasis branded towels do not count as a bonus, as much as HR likes to think so.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
