Be ready to face crappy work, no direction, no guidance, mentoring, tons of politics.

Pros

Have LOTS of money to waste. Very generous to employees (even if they suck). Good place to work if you want to convert to an idiot in < 1 year.

Cons

Everything else. I haven't been able to figure out 1 thing they are strong in. Listing a few. NO leadership. Almost zero technical expertise in the leadership. They can't even make 1 seasoned decision on technology without doing 200 meetings and spending thousands. Politics and lots of it. Blame game and lots of it. Teams come up with fake and completely baseless accusation on other teams to cover their own mistake. Only happens at IHG. Too many talkers, very less doers. Unstable production due to the above and complete inability to troubleshoot. Corruption - conflict of interest. Managers/Directors create fake positions to fill with their own contractors, benefiting their pockets. Most teams are less than 50% utilized. Most people who love working at IHG, don't know how retarded you will feel once you start your job search.

Advice to Management

Change the culture if you want to turn this company around. Start with cleansing the technical leadership. Bring in strong technical leaders with passion, innovation, morals and values with proven track records instead of people who you know already (and they are retards). Cut the corruption before it hits media. Bring ownership and accountability. Too many projects were run and didn't make it to production, just got scrapped because they ran out of budget. No one is held accountable when projects are scrapped after spending millions.

  1. Great place to work as an employee! Not as good as a contractor.

    Pros

    New and exciting technology in use, new challenges to tackle.

    Cons

    There is a high level of contractors that come and go on the IT team. This prevents some groups from having a "team" environment.


  2. I've thoroughly enjoyed working for this company since I was 18 years old

    Pros

    World-wide employee discounts at hotels, excellent training seminars, great opportunities for advancement, a company that really seems to care about its employees.

    Cons

    As a salaried employee in the hospitality field, there is no such thing as a 40-hour work week. Advancement opportunities may take a while.
