IRI is changing, it is really working to become a company I can be proud to work for

Consultant/Director (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at IRI full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe new management team appears to be open for recommendations. Growth delivered is becoming a real mantra for the company. Internal training is getting better and more personalized, not just web style learn on your own. Starting to share where an employee needs to go for information. Senior management is working to resolve issues of departments competing against each other for client dollars due to conflicting financial reporting centers. IRI is learning not to deliver software until it is rigorously tested. The company is learning to reward achievement rather than sales based on promises of achievement for internal and external clients.

ConsRaises and bonuses are minimal. Senior management It takes 8 years to get 4 weeks vacation if you are not a VP. 401K under contributes compared to other companies. Career paths and opportunities are questionable and dependent on client contracts. A fair number of returning employees, because you have to leave and come back to get a significant raise, promotion and/or stay level with competitive salaries.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep improving. Address vacation, 401K and competitive salary levels. Fix financial reporting system to reward teamwork.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
