Pros

The management that pulled Idea out of debt and build a team of outstanding colleagues may be the best set of managers I've ever known. They did a great job of valuing employees, getting rid of inefficient role and individuals and creating a great environment of talented people to help each other be better consultants. As a first step from corporate environment into the world of consulting, my experience has been great in the short term.

Cons

Unfortunately the management turnover rate is higher than I would hope in my 5 years at the company, and with many buyouts our benefits have also de-volved and worsened. In addition, with the economy issues, salary raises and general career opportunities have become non-existent for any long term horizon.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They are on a good track with new management, however there are still no signs that the new management team really value the loyal employees. And despite the significant exodus of most of the top talent, there have been no promotions, bonuses, or real incentives for current talent to stay put. Most of the top talent that remain are here because we have personal circumstances that make jumping ship less of an option.

    Pros

    Really smart people. Work environment ok.

    Cons

    Pay not best. Corp management has no clue about the market the company is in and makes stupid decisions that hurt everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spin it off and let it be it's own company run by folks who understand IT consulting.... Jacksonville is the company's biggest liability.

    Pros

    for basic experience, it will work

    Cons

    often no training, just thrown in and sink or swim. No feedback until you have/are in trouble. management would rather not know you exist, ie; they do not want problems

    No opinion of CEO
