    I have been working at IFDS part-time (less than an year)


    Teams are welcoming, very helpful
    Great organizational structure
    Pay for co-op was above minimum, while teaching you. Made for an experience I would go back to


    Management seems stale
    Needs to have some changes at the top level, or hire more competent individuals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the direction of the company rather than applying basic managerial tactics.
    If something aint broke, dont fix it... Upper management seems to always want to change something for no reason

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
