    I have been working at IBISWorld full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at IBISWorld for 2 years before leaving (only because I moved - not by choice). I was offered the chance to work remotely from DC after leaving for 6 months, and I jumped at the offer because there aren't many companies that offer the environment and opportunity that IBISWorld does.

    Within the 3 years I've been at IBISWorld, I was challenged and rewarded. This company has gone through major growth but with that growth came the opportunity to take on more responsibility and participate in the expansion. If you work hard and prove yourself, there is so much opportunity at this company. One of the best things about IBISWorld is being heard - management is awesome about listening to the employees and understanding what they need in order to be the best they can be. What I love most about this company is the young & fun environment. This is a very team-driven environment. It is the epitome of work hard, play hard. I have made true friendships here and honestly love going to work every day.

    If you want to have control over the direction of your career but enjoy work/life balance and the environment you are working in, this is a great place to work!

    Cons

    IBISWorld has been rapidly growing over the past few years and with that comes growing pains. It had its pros and cons because with growth came new opportunities but also challenges. Because there was so much constant change, it was hard to keep up with the workload. Management was challenged with interviewing and on-boarding, which took time away from their teams. The growth has slowed and I think that IBISWorld has now found a good balance. The teams are still small so you have a lot of one-on-one time with your manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with what is happening with your team! Always check in and make yourself available when they need you.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email the next day about an interview. I setup the time with the recruiter and two days later we spoke in-depth in regards to my experience and education. When I told her my former company went under, she laughed, and then said "sorry, I guess it's not funny that you were laid off". Furthermore, she had the English vernacular of a 5th grader. I almost felt bad for her. In addition, she wasn't even prepared for the interview, she said "oh wait, what's your name again?" and then proceeded to scrummage in silence while she tried to redeem herself. When I asked what the company culture was, she paused and said "umm... hold on, and then started reading from their benefits package! I asked for culture, not whether you have medical and dental.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no routine interview questions, other than "what did you do at this job, that job" etc. when clearly my qualifications and MBA were stated on my resume.

      The bottom line here is that this company clearly doesn't know what they're doing. Please be very cautious.
