    Pros

    Nice are of town, Del Mar/Carmel Valley Casual dress code Good & smart people at the front lines

    Cons

    Stay away Very poor and weak leadership at the VP and "Cxx" levels of the organization, especially in IT

    Advice to Management

    Don't be spineless and make the necessary changes so that the people know you are serious.

    I worked at ICW Group full-time

    Pros

    San Diego is a great place to live. Nice suburban office location. Chairman of the Board is an excellent businessman and a good man who has contributed generously to the community.

    Cons

    I do not have the same respect for some other members of the senior management team as I have for the COB. Company seems to be dominated by IT initiatives ($$$) -- Technology is valued over experienced, knowledgeable employees. During my career at ICW, I observed several layoffs and noticed that on occasion, seasoned individuals abruptly "left employment". This may not a good place to work if you are outside the "clique".

    Advice to Management

    Don't just say that you value and appreciate your employees, prove it.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. The company has a strong focue on how you project yourself instead of technical ability. While I have the skills, it definitely made me reflect upon how I was projected myself. I can bring this into the next job.

    Cons

    No career path. Extremely high expectations for low pay. My responsibilities are consistently changing with no clearly defined scope.

    Advice to Management

    No advice would help except greater transparency in the hiring process particularly when it comes to benefits.

    Love working here! I'm perplexed by other reviewers who wrote bad reviews, yet they have stayed for 3+ years.

    I have been working at ICW Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual environment, great benefits, they listen to their employees and take action on suggestions for improvement, great work-life balance, and the most important is the ability to write your own career path. If you want to work hard to move up, then you will. If you want to be lazy, then you won't get anywhere. ICW Group rewards those that actually do the hard work. I've worked at company's where everyone receives a bonus, and you're in shock that the lazy person next to you is being rewarded. ICW Group rewards those that actually work hard. It's hard for some people to understand that and realize that you don't get paid to just show up. I wish more companies followed this philosophy.

    Cons

    Employees and Managers need more training, but this is also a pro because they have listened to their employees, and they are already making improvements. 401K match is paid at the end of the year- but hey, at least they have a match

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of training opportunities, promotion from within, and no day is ever exactly like the day before. It's a fast paced environment if you like that in a job.

    Cons

    Very numbers driven to the point where they over work their staff. At the time is seemed like they were so intent on keeping their staffing overhead low, that they sometimes had unreasonable expectations for task completion.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front line people and their immediate supervisors. They are the ones who are responsible for providing efficient, yet stellar customer service, and if they say they need something, they probably do.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Good people. Good way to gain some experience.

    Cons

    Opportunities are limited despite growth. Benefits continue to be reduced. Lack of support and cooperation among upper management that trickles down. Every department is a silo.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees for what they actually do.
