I have been working at IA Collaborative full-time
IA's biggest strengths are their people and projects. The projects are unmatched to anything you will find at a Chicago agency. This is courtesy of IA's prior success and strong and legitmate client partnerships. IA has created a brand and approach with clients that provides opportunities for their employees to do their best work and gain exposure for solving the right problems. The people are delightful, kind, caring, humorous, and the best and brightest in the creative industry. If you have to spend 40 hours away from your family, you would choose to spend your time with the folks of IA. It is really a team effort across all the disciplines. This stems from a sharp focus on wellness, "yes and," active participation, and integrated account management. At IA I am always learning from my peers and being taught new ways to think about the world's biggest challenges. In that we are creating the right experience for our clients and their users. Recently, there have been good strides by leadership to focus on retention, culture, benefits, and personal development. Assuming this trajectory continues, IA is on track to have unprecedented growth, increased industry awareness, new clients, and a culture befitting the best makers in Chicago.
IA has experienced great success for the past 15 years. The company is at a point where operations need to scale up from a small to a medium size business. As a result there are opportunities to improve working models, processes, resourcing, benefits, and community outreach; all areas of focus in 2015. While collaboration is the backbone of IA, leadership should appreciate opportunities for employees to work remotely on occassions and afford better ways to access files from afar; tablestakes for today's workforce. The bright side to these challenges are the principles. They LOVE feedback and are ready to hear about opportunities and empower folks to make a difference.
