There's always something new to learn, and if you're willing to work hard and are committed to put the time in, you will be rewarded at IQ, and you'll meet some pretty awesome people along the way. Upper level management is supportive and willing to provide mentorship to staff looking for growth, as long as you are willing to work hard and take initiative to get the job done right. There's no hand holding at IQ. But if you work hard and are a team player, you'll find that your fellow employees are very supportive, a lot like family. There's always going to be a cousin that you don't hear from too often, and you may question what they do with all their time. Or an aunt who always seems to be out to lunch when you need help on a project. But generally, you can find the support you need if you know where to look for it.
Bottom line, if you dive in head first, ask the right questions, and are willing to work hard, knowing that every day will be different, you will succeed and enjoy your time at IQ. While new HR policies and the peer mentor program have improved the employee on-boarding process, the expectation is on you to ask the right questions, including those regarding policies, procedures, and 'how things work' within the company.
The corporate culture supports employees as much as possible to achieve a work-life balance, despite regularly stressful workdays. The wellness initiative is growing to support employees who have varying health and wellness goals to achieve this "balance." IQ offers a great remote work policy and managers are generally understanding of commitments outside of work that come up. Health benefits are good. HR is knowledgeable and supportive. Overall compensation could be improved.Cons
See 'Advice to Management' regarding compensation and advancement opportunities.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be honest and more transparent with employees about opportunities for advancement. Uphold a level of professionalism that you expect from your staff. Employees who are promoted should be compensated fairly for their commitment and willingness to go above and beyond, especially if they are willing to help out when they may already be at or close to their maximum workload capacity.Neutral OutlookApproves of CEO
