I worked at Integrated Project Management Company full-time

Pros

Brand name clients, good benefits, honest, ethical leadership, exposure to lots of projects, clients, and industries.

Cons

Too many non-strategic projects, more of a staff augmentation role than strategic consulting, very conformist culture, conservative and slow to change, long term engagements that can involve traveling for months or years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix gap between hiring very experienced OLd, stating you're a strategic consulting firm, but then repeatedly taking low value staff augmentation PM jobs.

    Pros

    The people are the best part of this company. I've worked for several companies and this is by far the best company I've ever worked for. They take care of their people from the benefits, to compensation, to bonuses. Anyone is willing to give you a helping hand (all the way up to Senior Management). This company truly cares about its employees (its family) and are not afraid to show it.

    Cons

    Being a Consultant comes with its tolls, such as long commutes and a struggle of work/life balance, however the company tries extremely hard to minimize the impact of these factors.

    I have been working at Integrated Project Management Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I love the company's culture and it's the primary reason I plan to to stay here for many years. It's very refreshing to be surrounded by co-workers that share similar beliefs regarding honesty, work ethic, community service and striving for a suitable work-life balance. Management's commitment to work-life balance can be seen in how they manage travel demands; which is often the biggest work issue faced by consultants. IPM recognizes the commutes that many of us have and does work to assign us to a project with a lesser commute after we've completed a project with long commute.

    The company works very hard to be the type of company people want to work for and don't want to leave. No company is perfect, but IPM has been the perfect company for me.

    Cons

    The only con for me has been the commutes associated with getting to many of our client locations. Although I have had long driving commutes to get to clients since I've been at IPM, it is offset by having local assignments that don't require regular air travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue what you've been doing; valuing honesty, integrity, work-life balance and your people. I think we should take a more aggressive approach to marketing our culture and why people enjoy working here but also to be very upfront about the nature of consulting. It's very easy to get enamored by IPM the company but if you don't enjoy the nature of consultant work or a consultant lifestyle you're probably not going to be happy working as a project management consultant at IPM.
