    Pros

    iPipeline (Internet Pipeline) is a rapidly growing company with its headquarters located in Exton, PA, USA.
    The company provides software solutions for the Life Insurance and Annuities product suite. In essence, the company is focused on replacing a historically paper-based industry with world-class internet-based solutions hosted in their data center (i.e., a SaaS environment).
    Although currently the vast majority of their clients are US-based, their vision is to expand their clientele to a world-wide presence. As of the date of this post, the company has a presence in Canada, the United Kingdom, and is exploring opportunities in Japan as well as other non-US locations.
    The company demographic is generally composed of a young population (employees in their 20s, 30s, and 40s) with a very strong management team having an extensive background in the Life Insurance and Annuities domains who demand a business culture that reflects values rooted in innovation, excellence, and integrity.

    Cons

    As with any software development company which is growing very rapidly, the impacts of technology change, customer demands for rapid delivery of products to market coupled with a focus on high-quality and rich functionality, presents challenges that the company faces on a daily basis. The company is undergoing an internal revolution to adopt the principals and practices of agile software development. Having worked in the software development industry for over 30 years, I know that switching from the traditional 'waterfall' software development approach to the 'agile' approach is very difficult. It takes time, discipline, ongoing training, consistent and comprehensive communication, and strong management support. Although these characteristics are present throughout the company, the adoption is never fast enough. The company's clients are feeling this fundamental shift and that transition can be difficult for them simply because it does take time. As a result, many of their clients are having difficulty in seeing the true value of this shift which is sometimes reflected on those employees who are in direct contact with those clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am an employee that works in the Professional Services division of iPipeline. The management staff in this division is extremely talented with a very strong background in not only the company's product line, but in software development as well. They are laser-focused on achieving their business goals and supporting their employees on that journey. My advice to the management staff is to keep on doing what you are doing: stay focused on the agile software development transition and support your employees who are committed to that goal, continue to recruit the very best talent that you can find, do all that you can to find ways to recognize and retain those talented employees, and continue to show ways to make the day-to-day work experience both rewarding and enjoyable.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at iPipeline.

    Interview Details

    What a joke. They paint a very rosy picture of the company, then they low-ball your offer. Only after you start working there do you realize what a show they put on to lure you in, and the show takes for-ev-er. Multiple rounds of interviews, dragging the process out, forcing you to choose between them and other opportunities. They don't care, and give no consideration to how long they take to make an offer.

    How do you negotiate with a company that uses such a deceptive hiring process and takes advantage at every step?
