I have been working at Ironside Group full-time (Less than a year)
Small company culture but big company credentials. Great people to work with and very friendly environment. People are always happy to help. One is always encouraged to learn new things, and every individual's opinion matters regardless of their position. If you speak up you'll be heard. Hard work will be recognized and rewarded. Loyalty seems to be important, your colleagues are your family. The company has a quite impressive portfolio of clients, and has a great reputation in the industry. Overall, the people is what makes this place unique. Those who complain just didn't do what was expected from them. Ironside sets high standards for success, so be ready to be challenged, and know what you are getting into. Also, offers great benefits and perks.
Definitely commuting. Driving from the city to Lexington or a client site can be frustrating at times. Also, you will at some point work on projects less exciting than others, and that comes with every job, however; management is very flexible and cares about their consultants and can agree to shift things around if possible.
Advice to Management
Keep involving your people at every level of the organization. Don't be afraid to pursue new ventures and get out from your comfort zone. The company has great potential and can achieve much more as a whole.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ironside Group.
4 round interview process. On campus recruiting event. Passed on my resume at the career fair and received an email 10 days later about setting up a 30 min call interview. First interview was with an HR representative, behavioral interview, asks simple questions about your experience, your personality, and future goals. Later in the day received an email about having a second phone interview with a senior consultant. The second interview was technical. You have to go over your resume, explain how your experience is relevant to the job you are applying for. The interviewer also asks about your technical knowledge and background. At the end of the call I was ask to come at the office to give a technical presentation of my choice. Presented in front of three people, and they ask questions at the end of it. If everything goes well they'll be one last phone interview with a member of the management team, behavioral, similar to the first one to make sure you're a good fit for the company.
