    The atmosphere is very welcoming. People are so friendly. You feel like in a family. The pay is not bad.

    Cons

    They are short in cash and have financial problems, so your jobs are not very secured. It is not easy to move up in your career.

    Pros

    Felxible work hours.
    Reasonable salaries and bonus.

    Cons

    Experienced people seem to have limited advancement opportunity.
    Very poor communication at every level.....no downward communication regarding day to day or short term expectations.
    Senior management downward communications seem to contradict what employees at the lower level of the organization experience or see.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek input from employees at all levels of the organization. Focus less on the heirarchy. Line management needs to assume responsibility and be held accountable.

    Pros

    Great people, for the most part a very collaborative environment, some of the industry's cleverest people. ION seems to be regaining their focus after several years of not knowing which part of the industry best suited them.

    Cons

    Chasing quarterly numbers whilst fending off law suits didn't help ION for the last couple of years. Stock is up and down and there seems to have been a lack of consistency in their focus. Hopefully this is behind them.

    Current Employee - Senior Geophysicist in Denver, CO

    Pros

    - Laid-back, friendly work environment
    - Sharing knowledge is encouraged: co-workers are more than willing to help with trouble-shooting.
    - Usually good work/home life balance
    - In Data Processing, work is always changing, producing new challenges.
    - Opportunities for growth
    - Competitive Salary/Bonus

    Cons

    - Inconsistent training opportunities, though looks to be improving
    - Some stressful times due to deadlines and unforeseen processing issues. But these usually don't happen constantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good to keep transparency with employees about company operations.
