I worked at Ingenuity Systems full-time

Pros

Nice business park, developing interesting products (at least from a scientific and clinical perspective), friendly co-workers, lots of opportunity to learn

Cons

middle-of-the-road compensation, inspiration pretty much has to come from within because it's tough to find it elsewhere, individual career progression is not very apparent, it is unclear whether it is worth an employee's time and effort to go above and beyond the call of duty

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve transparency in an effort to improve the culture; Employees can see through the corporate MBA talk so avoid using it; Inspire the employees rather than just expect them to be inspired on their own

    I have been working at Ingenuity Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Cafe in business park, quality office supplies, snacks at company meetings, free soda

    Cons

    Inept management across the board, inability to effectively release new products (lack of real product managers), strategies turn on a dime, slow to adapt to changing environments, painfully slow/bad decision making. Inability to acknowledge challenges and recent attrition issues, employees are left to make assumptions on their own, resulting in a pretty negative culture. Non-competetive salaries.

    I worked at Ingenuity Systems

    Pros

    Flexible with work/ life balance
    Interesting products that are sufficiently tested before release
    Smart colleagues who were hard working and customer-minded

    Cons

    Not allowed to be very creative in this job
    Difficult to get new project ideas approved by management
    Product management doesn't listen to customer/ technical support input

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to be more creative, and listen to their feedback. I never felt challenged at this job and could have done more if allowed.
