I have been working at ikaSystems full-time

Pros

Nice people to work with...not much else

Cons

Management has no clue how to lead a company. Too many people still working the just because they have been there since the company started and should have been fired a lo g time ago.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please quit and hire new management

    I have been working at ikaSystems as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Surrounded by super smart and capable people, meetings are actually fun - very positive, really feel like you are accomplishing something. Great executive team - very approachable. Products and clients are solid and impressive. I look forward to coming to work., I think that says it all.

    Cons

    Not a lot of processes or down time. If you don't like fast-paced or need a lot of hand holding, this is not your jam.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not a lot of communication about what other departments are doing - you, know the "congratulations to our Test team" or "our Soft Dev team created XYZ in record time". Most companies send out too many emails about this, ika doesn't send any.

    I worked at ikaSystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary. Great talents. Great system and products.

    Cons

    If you think your talent will be utilized here, think again. If you think the reason you were hired in the first place will be recognized and heard once you get in, you need to re-evaluate your priority. There is no structure, no leadership, nothing. It is like staring at a blank wall.. Empty!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. Leave. And let someone who knows how to lead and communicate start taking over.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
