I have been working at iCore Networks full-time (More than a year)
I have never been as professionally challenged as I have been at iCore compared to all the other jobs I've had in the past. You will find yourself being placed in a lot of uncomfortable situations that will force you to learn new technology and adapt to new roles and responsibilities. It depends how you interpret and react to situations like this, but if you're hungry to succeed and GAIN the knowledge and experience to put on your resume, then working here will work in your favor. There are a lot of smart people here that you can learn from. You can definitely be promoted if you do your job well and avoid whining (publicly).
The uncomfortable situations that iCore employees are placed in can be very demanding and unrealistic at times. This company runs at 200 miles per hour every single minute, every day. If you cant keep up, you will either cry, whine, get coached out of your role, or you'll eventually quit. I blame the company's ridiculously fast-paced culture and the unfair expectations for you to work at least 10 hours a day to be the major contributing factor that BURNS OUT everyone that has quit iCore. While it's true that you can get promoted easily here if you last long enough, but it's more for the company's need to create that position more so than you actually deserving the so-called promotion. The company is growing at an incredible rate and the operations and support part of the company is simply not keeping up fast enough. The customer base grows each day but we are not keeping up with the demand internally. The genuinely hard-working employees get recognized all the time which is good, but you can also unintentionally shoot yourself in the foot by working too hard because management will pile work on you more than you can realistically handle within your regular 40-hour work week. People are forced to come in super early and stay back late to get the job done. It's sad to say but you have to learn how to be strategic with how much you want to shine in your department.
Advice to Management
Employee training needs to be ongoing, not just in the beginning of the new hire process. Instead of doing the monthly close-out, think about adding that money to people's salaries, or to developing better employee training and development! iCore needs to invest in their employees to retain them as much as they invest in closing deals and making sales.
