iDirect Review

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Herndon, VA

I worked at iDirect Technologies full-time for more than a year

ProsFavorable work environment. Ability to work remotely. Good location and work facilities. Direct contact with VP's and decision makers...

ConsWork culture environment tends to "click" within departments. Rapid growth and new processes not keeping up with systems training. High numbers of VP and Director level staff on site can make working difficult (at times impossible).

Advice to Senior ManagementTends to be guilty of having too many bosses and not enough workers to spread work around. Too many bosses subscribing to the grapevine management system versus personnel performance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Pre Sales

Pre Sales (Former Employee)
Reston, VA

I worked at iDirect Technologies full-time for more than a year

ProsThis is a good company to work in where the hours you need to put in do not cross 40 per week. The management is okay.

ConsThere is no growth that I can see in this company because it deals with satellite communication and such jobs are not easily available if you want to switch somewhere else.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs I have said that the management is okay. The human resource people are rude.

let's not get too bureaucratic

Programmer (Current Employee)
Herndon, VA

I have been working at iDirect Technologies

ProsInteresting technology, and future seems to be good. we had a strong growth over the last few years and management seems to be very optimistic. overall I feel good about my salary compared to people working in this industry

Consseems like there is more and more bureaucracy. this may have to do with the company who acquired us, or maybe people think we are not working in an organized enough way, but my feeling is that it is becoming a burden which may eventually kill creativity.

Advice to Senior Managementwe need to get back to being less formal, and salaries should continue to increase to reflect the growth of the business.

ProsGenerous bonus scheme, good people to work with

ConsCompany is performing badly (bonus is affected), no one is sure what's the company's strategy

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
