Consultant

Career Consultant (Former Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I worked at Impact Group full-time for more than a year

ProsQuality firm with a good reputation nationally and, to some extent, internationally. The Herring family is strongly in charge of the firm. Lauren Herring is a pleasant, positive leader who is more approachable and genuine relative to her mother who is the founder and original CEO.

ConsSubstantial daily workload yet the overall work environment is reasonable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Really positive experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Impact Group

ProsWork is valued, good communication, smart leadership. Most leadership and tools are innovative-pretty high tech. Would highly recommend this to anyone as an employer.

ConsNot all leadership is forward thinking..one or two people in leadership are stuck in the past, which leads to being less responsive to needs.

OK place to work - flexible work environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Impact Group full-time

ProsFlexible schedule and ability to work from home make Impact a good place to work. Managers are supportive.

ConsCompeting priorities and styles of leadership make things difficult. Senior leaders pay lip service to valuing employees and engagement - some are unwilling to make personal changes to address issues or feedback.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you ask your employees for feedback - LISTEN to it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to build skills

Consultant (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Impact Group full-time for more than 10 years

Pros- career development
- excellent coworkers
- great work-life balance

Cons- poor, often laughable, middle management
- weak communication between departments
- never really felt like a professional

Advice to Senior ManagementThere were no issues with executive management for me. However, much of middle management lacks true managerial abilities and skills, not to mention a lack of respect for the people who make them look good.

The employees are the greatest asset. They have wonderful ideas that never are fully supported due to the bottom line.

The efforts at bringing employees together and building a community are valued, but at times fall flat. My advice would be to seek out more genuine ways to bring teams closer together.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Part-time professional job working from home; one company that encourages it!

Career Consultant (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Impact Group

ProsAs a Career Consultant, I get to work virtually from any location, as long as I have a computer and an internet connection. I get clients assigned according to the numbers I tell them I can take, and the resources I can make available to clients for job-seeking services are outstanding. The Impact Group provides paid and unpaid opportunities to keep me up-to-date in the industry. The co-workers are of high caliber and we get to exchange ideas with each other via phone and email. I like the flexibility of the job the most.

ConsI only get paid for the actual time working with clients or for the "approved training" they recommend. I spend more time on my own learning the systems and ins-and-outs of the technical report requirements that is not compensated.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are doing a great job; I feel that I am being given all the information I need to do my job. I would like an increase in salary at some point however. I believe all the consultants are paid the same regardless of the years' working for them or the amount of experience you have.
