    I have been working at iPipeline full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    iPipeline is a growing company with a fast paced environment. The people here are great, willing to help others and share their knowledge. We work hard but also take time to celebrate the victories along the way. We have quarterly company meetings and a newsletter to keep everyone informed across all offices. You really need to be honest with yourself - if you do not enjoy working in a fast paced environment, then this may not be the place for you.

    Cons

    Depending on your job, you may be expected to work > 40 hours/week and some weekends. I enjoy my job, so I do not mind working extra hours when/if needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really think it would be greatly appreciated if the Exton office is going to have a gym available in the near future, then please consider contributing toward a gym membership (employee's choice) for employees in the satellite offices. I think those in the satellite offices would be thrilled if you did this! It would also provide the same perk in all stateside offices, improve employees' health, reduce stress and health insurance costs and be a low cost perk with a big benefit for both the employees and iPipeline.

    I have been working at iPipeline full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been here 7 years. Growth can be challenging, but it provided opportunities for me to experience new learnings and get my arms around some interesting and demanding work. I like it.

    Cons

    Given the growth, the company is a bit pressed for space. I understand that we are taking over another floor in the building to accommodate our expansion. We are also adding an exercise room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like the improved communications, and the culture is really great--work hard and play hard.

    Growing quickly, lots of opportunity if you are proactive, plenty of nifty employee perks, lots of longtime employees willing to guide you, nice office space, people are very nice and eager to do well

    Cons

    Fast growth makes things hectic, prioritization can be difficult with so much activity, changes come quickly

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Great work environment. Friendly and supportive co-workers. If

    Cons

    Not much room for growth in development. The company's strategy of acquire, integrate, maintain and outsource makes for a slow-and-steady outlook.

    I have been working at iPipeline full-time

    Pros

    Lots of freedom, autonomy, work/life balance is great most of the year and management is pretty considerate regarding personal matters. High energy atmosphere with lots of company events and celebrations.

    Cons

    Some employees are resistant to change/new ideas, and there is a lot of activity in certain departments creating a lag in communication at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work, but encourage process improvement in every department - and encourage departments to work with each other. Internal communication should be a much higher priority.

    I have been working at iPipeline full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent career opportunities, access to latest technology, good people, friendly work environment, lots of access to extracurricular activities.

    Cons

    I don't personally work in the professional services department but from an outsider view it looks like a sweatshop. Sometimes the things I hear from our developers are just scary. I am not sure where they find some of these people. I honestly trust the interns opinions more than our senior developers. Same thing with project managers, not sure where we are finding these people but we need to start looking elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start bringing in the Bob's(Office Space reference) when we keep purchasing these new companies. I get the idea behind the acquisitions but not always the products and people that are gained with it. Start shedding some older out of touch developers who can't keep up with the new technology. There are plenty of young kids out of college who can do twice the work of the some of the people just getting by making much more $$.

    I have been working at iPipeline full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on where you land, it can be a great place to work. Some teams are tight knit groups, other teams are disaster areas.

    Cons

    If you don't find the right spot with the right team for you, you will not last long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People don't leave companies, they leave managers. If you have a lot of turnover it's time to look in the mirror

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Exton, PA

    I have been working at iPipeline full-time

    Pros

    They care about employees; Growing business; Nice people, nice work environment, decent pay. Celebration of successes; employee perks; nice culture;

    Cons

    Its like playing double dutch jump rope, you don't know when our how to jump in, but you're expected to do it and do it right. Fast moving; too much work for the resources. Care more about pushing something out the door and fixing it later.......rather than letting the customer wait for better quality. Lots of weekend work expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people; Know your employees workload, having 'only one carrier' does not mean they're not overwhelmed, that one carrier may have 7 projects going on!!!
    Look into a documentum system to keep version control, everyone is working off different documentes!!

    I have been working at iPipeline

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities within the company. I believe overall most people enjoy working at here. If you are someone who is a go getter personality then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Growth has some organizational challenges but I think it work itself out. Not a place for someone who expects a steady 9 to 5 environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show you truly appreciate your employees, give them an opportunity own a part of the company.
