    I worked at IFG full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to make money is real (if they pay your commissions). Hard-work will pay off with lots of job orders in the first 3-4 months. Lots of great promises from management.

    Cons

    Too many managers with conflicting management styles, no training, no support, no pay-out for earned commissions ("due to the holiday" but it's now almost February??). Management will expect you to come in early, stay late, work through lunch to meet "productivity" goals that are lofty at best. Your base pay IS your pay, so if you decide to join, make sure that you negotiate high. Your sales efforts will not only be your rewards but everyone else's (you only get a % of what you do because everyone else finds a way to be a part of each deal).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to evaluate what is important to the management team... get on the same page and be diligent about sharing a vision. Develop a real training program to on-board employees and stick to one "productivity measurement" across the board. If the goal is 100 connects a week and NO-ONE (even your management team) is making that many, re-evaluate to something that is happening from your top performers that is achievable by EVERY member of the team and hold people accountable for that. Leading by example is the best way to go.

    You can make good money (although high performers were still fired)

    Management within Pittsburgh was horrific with in fighting, inappropriate remarks and generally shameful behavior.

    IFG was a very difficult place to work and the management makes it nearly impossible to succeed long term.

    I have been working at IFG as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    gift basket (very cheap one though) for Christmas
    at least put something in it lol
    It is just a corporate thing but appreciated

    Cons

    they fulfill the admin for my job and do not do anything
    They have a chip on their shoulder and are certainly arrogant. Hey come off your high HORSE
    also pay more I am embarrassed to work for this amount of money guys

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation needs to be better
    share the wealth a little
    Do not be all about taking the money

    I have been working at IFG as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    they don't get in your face too much but when they do it is pretty stupid because they have NO idea
    Still you can pretty much ignore them or their spam emails

    Cons

    Clueless bureaucracy that just sit as an overlay layer to suck some money off you
    Do nothing for you and just look at you and act concerned but will never take one positive action for you as an employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are what makes this contract and job work
    Work for us in return and give us love and respect and oh learn about the job here
