    Pros

    ISG is a global consulting with opportunities for growth. I've enjoyed working for this company.

    Cons

    Not a good place to work if you don't like travel, but otherwise it's hard to explain any cons.

    Pros

    Family oriented, the entire company is run by the Reardon family and they're all very polite and good people to work for. If your having an issue understanding something, several of your coworkers are more then willing to assist you. The hours are reasonable and the benefits arnt bad at all, including the 401k plan.

    Cons

    If your not in the good graces of the Reardon clan, you will NOT move up at all in this company. If you are a male in this office, you will be treated sub par and as if your nothing more then an annoyance. They can't keep the investigators busy out side of the northeast busy year round. The Reardon "favorites" as their known around the office, are often seen hanging out in their supervisors office for hours on end while the rest of us had to work. And worst of all, the pay is very much subpar. If your hourly, your paid under $20 an hour and are forced to work overtime to make ends meet and if your Salaried, then you lose out on atleast $20,000 a year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving special treatment to your favorites!

  3. Good experience - good for just graduated high school seniors and college students

    Pros

    401k program and pto are both reasonable

    Cons

    Starting pay is not based on experience or college degree (everyone starts off the same), treated poorly by upper management, lots of complaining throughout the office, girls are very catty and show lots of behavior seen in high school. The office favorites will choose if you are liked or not liked by upper management if they don't like you neither will the Reardons. If you like drama this is the perfect place for you, if you like to be talked down to it is the place to work ! Absolutely no room for growth unless you are a Reardon!

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the people who do well and pay better for the ones who work their butts off to keep you guys in business. So glad I got out of there when I did.

    Pros

    Family owned company that makes you feel like part of the extended family. They actually inquire about your family life and will often ask how everyone is doing. No company is perfect but when you work 60% of the time you are awake it is enjoyable to be around people that you like.
    If you work hard, you are always recognized and there is room for growth.
    Very generous benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    Growth (which is good for any company) can sometimes be sudden and you have to keep up while new people are trained (but good for job security).

    Advice to Management

    The company has grown rapidly over the last year hopefully you can keep that "family run company feel".

    Pros

    (With regards to the Research department) Decent as a first job out of college- no prior experience is necessary. Good for putting a year of work experience on a resume. Overtime can be worked whenever desired (paid time and half).

    Cons

    (With regards to the Research department) Office environment is very catty and reminiscent of high school- employees gossip about each other behind backs and closed doors. Positive feedback on performance is very rarely given, only critiques on work done incorrectly. No opportunities to be promoted from within- company is family-owned and all experienced positions are held by family members only. Employees not related to family are treated unfairly (pay greatly varies despite similar job positions and experience levels). Money is often valued higher over employee well-being- managers refuse to hire enough individuals to meet demands (too expensive), resulting in several hours of "mandatory overtime", particularly around holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Occasional, friendly office chat is prohibited.

    Advice to Management

    (With regards to the Research department) Train managers to actually manage their departments in a positive and improvement-wielding manner. The disparity in how "outsider" employees and family/friends of family employees are treated is debilitating and unfair.
