    Pros

    One of the best things for me has been working on a range of software projects, from small teams to large, from commercial to federal. On each, I’ve been able to work on challenging, large-scale problems and effect change in people's lives.

    When I saw a problem, I researched and proposed changes in the process and a tool. My ideas where well received by my manager and actually implemented!

    I’ve also recently got involved in a fundraising event at HQ and it was fun to do something unrelated to work for the good of the charity.

    Cons

    Need more corporate events that bring the project teams together.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize small wins and big and i don't mean just in proposals.

    Pros

    They're doing leading edge tech on cool projects. Big app dev deals in AWS, mobile app dev, big data with realtime streaming and analytics, warfighter support. I'm having fun. Don't know what some of these other reviewers are complaining about.

    Smart people. They (mostly) do a good job hiring so you get to work with good people.

    Management does seem to focus on people who can help win new business, but to that's a win. That's why we're growing so fast, I guess.

    Community focus. They're big into certain charities, like the Wounded Warriors and the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. Fun fundraising events.

    Cons

    It's definitely not perfect. There's so much to do the hours can be long. They need more people who can do certain things because right now too much falls onto too few people.

    Corporate communication is weak. Sometimes there's a burst of info about what's going on, then nothing for weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership team should spend more time talking to people on project teams. They need to know more about what we're doing and we need to know more about what they're doing.

    Pros

    Break room stocked with drinks and snacks, there are a lot of good intelligent people

    Cons

    People get promoted because of who they know and not because of their skill set, be prepared to kiss up to your superiors if you want to get anywhere. Be prepared to work a lot of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at management...people leave don't leave companies they leave managers

    Flashy corporate HQ and recruiting process, that's about it.

    Pros

    Pay is high and senior level executives seem intelligent.

    Cons

    Non-existent culture, little to no visibility above your direct report, warm body on client site mentality with little interest in your actual interests. Highly recommend asking probing, direct questions and reading reviews (with a reasonable grain of salt) before making the decision to join.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the people-aspect of running a business and not just the bottom line.


  6. Lousy company with untrustworthy managers. Good company to get stuck in place.

    Pros

    You receive a paycheck, average PTO and benefits, certification re-imbursements, some flexibility in scheduling.

    Cons

    Pay is highly determined by how much you valued yourself during the negotiation process. Definately aim high with this company because yearly raises (if any) any aren't great. You will typically receive a 0-2% pay raise depending on performance, do not expect a significant pay increase whatsoever.

    There is absolutely NO room for professional growth within the company in Sumter, SC. Doesn't keep up well with current technology. If you are currently employed, congratulations! you are overqualified for your position making much less than what you could be making in other companies. Coupled with this fact, there is a very high turn over rate with extreme difficulty filling open positions. Expect to do the work of three bodies while the carousel continues to spiral out of control.

    Unnecessary certification requirements for your job position.

    Poor management. Very low morale working environment as management continues to concentrate on the bottom line rather than its people. Fake smiles and hellos abound.

    Pros

    Rewards performers who are proactive.

    Cons

    Tightly knit group of decision-makers. If you're not in, you're out.
    Some mediocre performers slip through the cracks.

    Advice to Management

    Promote inclusiveness of top performers, expand strategic decision-making and improve communication.

    Pros

    If you want to simply punch the clock and pick up a paycheck, this isn't the company for you. InfoReliance hires exceptional consultants and it fosters an environment that challenges you to be better.
    - Supports professional development and continuing education
    - Have maintained a great compensation package in a challenging market
    - Opportunities to prove your abillities and leadership that notices and rewards excellence
    - Team / collaborative approach

    Cons

    If you need a lot of affirmation and close management, you will probably find this environment challenging. Because the employees tend to be those who take intiative and don't need close management, those who are looking for closer management may not be a great fit for certain positions.

    Pros

    Management empowers consultants through support, training and loyalty. I chose IR for that very reason. If you are a capable resource, you are a valued asset. Management stays engaged with it's personnel. I've watched many times when they've made tough choices in favor of the consultants where other firms have not.

    It's not rocket science guys, if you bring drama, low ethics or shoddy work, it's best to look somewhere else. However, if you're a SME that's driven and wants to get the job done, there's no better place.

    Another important note, our HR and Recruiting depts. are absolutely awesome!

    Cons

    The contracting world is a challenging arena, sometimes tough choices have to be made but it is always a last resort.

    Sometimes sub-par consultants make it through the screening process. When these personnel are identified, management always has more patience than I in working with these folks. Sometimes I wish they would just cut these folks loose. But at least the bad apples get every opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stand by us and we will always stand by you. We recognize the challenges and tough calls you guys are making and we are with you.

    CEO/Execs should reach out to the employees. Seems owners/execs just care about making their money instaed of running a consulting company

    Pros

    Day 1 benefits, but that's pretty standard in IT, so not a big deal really.

    Cons

    Too many incompetent people with no experience are hired. They then take credit for your work and repeat things you say so as to sound competent so they survive. Company doesn't seem to care when it is brought to their attention, problems are not addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring "billable bodies". Maybe then your reputation will improve and talent will actually want to come work here and stay. I almost decided not to accept the offer here after I had read the reviews. I wish I had declined. I won't make the same mistake again.
