I have been working at Idea Integration

Pros

the folks on the factory floor are great... the clients are great...

Cons

too much drama... constant gossip and senior management is the primary cause of most issues... no one is truly "the boss" because the company is owned by someone else... it's basically a free-for-all on most things... clients are the last thing management worries about

Advice to ManagementAdvice

admit your shortcomings... learn to adapt... stop the drama

    Pros

    Idea is very family friendly, flexible and supporting. They have that small firm feel which is nice when you don't want to just be a number in a larger company.

    Cons

    That small firm feel is a double edge sword. They haven't won a lot of business and can't carry people after the end of a project unless there is another project firmly in sight. This would not be so bad if they did a better job at bringing in new work, but without better business development, there just isn't much to work on. That's fine if you accept a job there for a specific project and you're happy, but if you want a career, it means you could find yourself in trouble unless they get more work for you after that initial project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management already knows what they need to do. They are working to fix business dveelopment, but who knows how long that will take.

    Interactive has the potential to be the best but not with current leadership.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good benefit package, paid vacations and sick time.

    Cons

    The leadership in interactive is inexperienced, uneducated and completely in over their heads. Anyone with talent and experience starts looking for another job within 6 months of hire. The company frowns upon new ideas, efforts to improve or any "change" whatsoever (even though they will repeatedly tell you in the interview that they are looking for new, fresh ideas from people with experience to help them improve.) No support for employees with hardware or software. Management made many promises during the interview and offer discussions that they never kept. A tremendous amount of politics, backstabbing, gossip, immaturity and attacking coworkers in order to mask their own inability and dysfunction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend that the new parent company make every employee reapply for their jobs. 90% of the leadership has been there 9+ years simply because no other company would ever hire them at the same level based on their resume.
