    Couldnt get out of their own way

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Waltham, MA

    ProsIt was a job, i did learn a decent amount about how to engage people via the phone. This company is like a cross between inside sales and market research, kind of a strange niche. There are no promotions, you get projects, you do the projects,

    ConsTiny little company, the true definition of a "mom and pop shop" run by a husband and wife, who can be volatile to one another, and to employees. They want you to live and die for their company, however, you are not compensated in such a fashion.

    Unusual environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome great people at Impole.

    ConsUncertain work environment for employment and compensation. Older computer software and hardware makes getting the job done difficult. Family run business can be intense.

    Company Way Past It's Prime

    (Former Employee)

    ProsLaunching pad for better opportunities at other organizations, flexible with being out of office if needed, have office room to yourself.

    ConsDoes not pay employees for 5+ weeks sometimes, part time hours vary and employees are notified on a day to day basis -- sometimes the morning of work (instability), no sick days allotted, unrealistic sales quotas expected, tube monitors, very old computers, Microsoft Office 97, no career advancement, can't WFH, penny pinchers, company morale is horrible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees on time or you should not be operating a business. Listen to fresh ideas rather than stifling them. Pretend you (the owners) are not related -- it's not professional to literally scream at each other in the hallways when people are trying to work.

    Dying company, standards and morale rapidly deteriorating

    Pros- Good work/life balance, decent flexibility

    Cons- Higher-ups can be very unprofessional at times, screaming matches in the hallway are not uncommon
    - Intra-company communication can be poor at times, very little transparency by management
    - Far too old-fashioned and reliant on outdated methodologies/perspectives

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't make big promises that are immediately reneged on

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
