I worked at IntStrux as a contractor for less than a yearPros
The overall staff is friendly, young, and passionate about what they do.Cons
As a new employee at any agency I am used to getting some form of "what you will be working on' 'our history of the client' and 'our next set of deliverables." I wasn't afforded this luxury. The business I was asked to manage fell under one of the owners nephews who was company known for being late to everything, walking out on meeting, and providing poor direction. I asked for a simple list of what we agreed to do for the client and he said he didn't have time to explain and that I needed to figure it out.
Another note is that I interviewed as a project manager and after meeting the clients I introduced myself as a project manager where after the nephew was upset that I said that and that I was an 'account manager for billing purposes"
Lastly, one of the tasks I was asked to manage was the building of an interactive presentation that was being outsourced to a team in India to develop. It was explained that they company took two weeks to learn the platform and were ready to do the job. Needless to say, they were not. I had to work all hours of the night and explain how the presentation worked. I asked the nephew if they had actually presented a piece that demonstrated (even thought I knew they didn't because you can see it in their system) and he said yes.
my recommendation to anyone considering Intstrux would be to identify who you would report to. If is the nephew I would think twice.Advice to ManagementAdvice
