Train wreck

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

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

Pros-Comprehensive benefit plans (although can very very expensive for a family)
-Nice perks like free tickets to sporting events, and travel awards

Cons-Incompetent and unqualified senior management
-Low-balling employees on salaries and increases, while upper management received obnoxious pay and regular monthly and yearly bonuses NOT tied to performance
-Not focused on building business relationships.
-Negative employee culture - focus is on butts in seats and profits above employee treatment.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire competent people that are actually qualified for the positions you select them for. Stop hand picking people and circumventing the hiring process that everyone else has to go through.

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