    I have been working at Incipio Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to gain hands-on experience. What I learned during one year at Incipio far surpasses anything I learned during four years of college or multiple years at other employers. Significant and rapid growth provides a lot of opportunity for advancement, and the company does a lot of promoting from within. Very results oriented. If you get your job done well, it is rewarded; if you don't, you won't succeed here. Very fast-paced and exciting environment and industry. New HR director has made noticeable improvements, and you can see the company really does care about the employees and is constantly seeking to make the employment experience more enjoyable and beneficial. Most importantly, fun, diverse group of people to work with. I'm grateful to be part of the Incipio family.

    Cons

    Not a place you want to work if you want to just clock in at 9 and clock out at 5 or be a mediocre employee. You have to put in a lot of hard work and produce results to make it at Incipio. Starting salary and vacation is on the lower end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to change too much as you continue to grow.

    Pros

    Fast pace and exciting environment. The company is growing so that is exciting to see.

    Cons

    Some of the worst management out there. Timelines and deadlines don't exists. One day you are told, "this needs to be done today" so your work is rushed and barely makes it in time but most likely has mistakes because you weren't given enough time and then you are held at blame for imperfect work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please start hiring professionals to do your job.

    Fast-paced, young environment

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Irvine, CA
    Current Employee - Product Manager in Irvine, CA

    I have been working at Incipio Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun, fast-paced work environment full of young professionals. The majority of the office is under the age of 40, so there is a lot of camaraderie among individuals in every department. Though a very busy office, taking time throughout the day to head into the kitchen to hang, laugh and have a snack or drink (provided by Incipio) is never discouraged. Breakfast and lunch are also provided every day of the week and holidays are celebrated with elaborate lunch parties that typically include wine & beer, which is awesome. On top of that, Incipio has no formal dress code so employees are able to come to work comfortable with the clothing they already own. Fun, up-beat music is played throughout the office all day, which makes for a very laid back environment.

    Incipio's CEO, Andy Fathollahi, is a very hands-on CEO who likes to be an active participant in every facet of the company. Andy works most frequently with upper management, design and product management but really enjoys helping out with all departments. While the hands-on approach is off-putting to some, Andy really loves being apart of the company’s production and growth. He is available to all employees throughout the day and genuinely takes the time to meet new employees when hired onto the team.

    Senior management promotes a positive work-life balance and is very accommodating when you need to take personal time. Hours are typically from 9-6PM but the company is able to accommodate with individual's schedules if necessary. Growth and promotion within happens frequently with those who work hard and are patient in their department.

    Incipio owns both Tavik and Braven, which offers a trifecta work environment where employees are able to learn and help out with development that goes far beyond case ingenuity. All three companies participate in multiple trade shows throughout the year so travel is a big part of working at Incipio; especially for those in sales, marketing, and product management.

    Cons

    Too many decisions are weighed on upper management's opinions, which can slow down production and productivity.

    Pros

    Free breakfast and lunch.

    Cons

    Time off policies, only a week vacation, really? If leaving on-time (doing 8 hour work day), management tells you that you are leaving early. To many projects, no organization in any department! Lots of turn-around in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized and don't pass on projects that you know will be unsuccessful and go nowhere.

    Pros

    The free food, some of the graphic designers were cool.

    Cons

    The CEO / owner breaks every law regarding sexual harassment , no HR department, only gives raises to those he likes, will cuss you out, humiliate you and degrade you out loud in front of all the employees. It's a joke to bother working here. All the positive reviews of this place are either paid for or Andy's getting the marketing girls to post stuff for him as usual because the guy is willing to rip anyone off or lie anyway he can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point in giving advice to management, they're just there to be yes men to Andy. None of them actually have managing skills.

    Pros

    Free breakfast and lunch. Hot chics all around

    Cons

    This place is a cancer run by the boys (buddy) club in upper management. These guys act like they know what they are doing, but stole half of the things they know from other companies. They sound like idiots when trying to sound smart, but half the people at this company are so you, they don't know any better.
    The owner and vp only like hiring young hit chics to get sales. They send their wives away whoever they are having fun. Owner is very abusive and simply pays people to lie and cheat for him. Some of the good reviews on this site are so fake, it's funny ton read. All the bad reviews are so spot on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They would never listen and keep on doing what they do.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Incipio Technologies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Some really nice and intelligent people, met a lot of friends
    -Cool, open environment and culture easy to talk with senior management/executives
    -Fast paced industry, company has a lot of potential to grow even more
    - Travel perks

    Cons

    -Lack of vacation time
    -Should promote from within the company
    -Sales needs more incentives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives should meet more frequently for performance reviews and incentivize employees more often. The company has the opportunity for more growth and better sales if employees were motivated with incentives. Employees would also be happier if they were rewarded with promotions, instead of hiring externally.

    I worked at Incipio Technologies

    Pros

    Young, good looking people with some cool perks like free lunches and snacks. Fast paced business so you have the opportunity to get hands on experience quickly, if you are so motivated.

    Cons

    - Terrible management. It's a "boys club" of people at the top. Lots of yelling and attempts at intimidation.
    - No HR department. So surprised no sexual harassment lawsuits have been filed.
    - No reasoning behind some of the internal promotions other than the CEO "likes" those people.
    - No training, no clear expectations, and never a design brief. You do work and hope for the best it's good enough not to get yelled at.
    - You eventually stop caring about the work that you do, and do just enough to get by. A lot of people who work here live with this attitude, and if you are a self motivated person, it begins to suck pretty quick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As long as you continue to try and micro-manage every aspect of your business, people that have great ideas and genuinely want to make an impact will continue to fail here. Hire people who are good at what they do and trust them to make the right decisions for your business. Stop running your business like a high school popularity contest.
