  2. Outstanding Company

    I have been working at Information Control Company

    Pros

    ICC is a great company to work for. They value their employees and do a lot to ensure they can continue to grow. Will often sponsor going to conventions, pay for books, pay a portion of education.

    Cons

    Being a consulting company and working away from the main office you can sometimes feel left out of the loop. It takes a persistent effort to maintain a presence in the company.

    I have been working at Information Control Company

    Pros

    I can only recommend people on H1 Visa. not recommended for Others

    Cons

    Bad Practices (Extreme bureaucracy)
    Bad Pay practices (they pay you of the money you earn - ) , Very calculative
    Stone cold attitude of the sr Management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please dont call it a IT Company
    "A fancy Bodyshop" is more agreeable
    All they look for the is the $ they can make on you. Nothing else would ever bother anyone in the whole hierarchy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve local reputation.

    Quintessential bodyshop

    Former Employee - Consultant in Columbus, OH
    Former Employee - Consultant in Columbus, OH

    I worked at Information Control Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - All projects local to Columbus, OH.

    Cons

    - This is your quintessential body-shop masquerading as a consultancy
    - No attempt to develop and build practices as a company. All they do is recruit people and float their resumes locally
    - Full-time employee pay-scale with part-time contractor job-security (Less pay with no job security)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Select a few practice areas and develop expertise as a company
    - Bid for a project as a company on a fixed-bid basis
    - Do just push your employee resumes around hoping to get a hit

    Inconsistent Pay Practices

    Former Employee - Manager in Columbus, OH

    I worked at Information Control Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    decent pay for first job, but don't get caught in anniversaries, you can do better elsewhere

    Cons

    abuse of visa workers, no pay equality for talent, client negotiated rate directly influences consultant pay - not right!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consultants should be paid for talent to company regardless of the negotiated rate of the client they are placed with, keeping a consistent margin to upper management for every client is not fair to workers -- we did not negotiate the rate!

    Former Employee - Consultant in Columbus, OH
    Former Employee - Consultant in Columbus, OH

    I worked at Information Control Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Can keep bench, Internal execution of project capability, Company benefits like 401k, Health and Dental Insurance, Professional development through certification, discussion etc. , H1B and Greencard sponsorship. Goes to extent to bring profitable employee from any corner of the world. Hired Best in US immigration lawyers to protect their foreign employees

    Cons

    Support bench only if you are assumed profitable to ICC (Good market, Good client manageable employee, more experienced and knowledgeable employee etc). No big and bulk client account in columbus,OH . Not many big internal project. Employee need to ready with latest skills in the market ( ICC won't help).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get big clients. Get more internal projects. Advice employees to manage clients before they work at client place. Train employees to manage difficult clients at client place especially when employees are thrown out from client place with bad remarks. Train recruiters not to hire employees if the employees don't make business sense. Its waste of time for employees

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Information Control Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are no Pro's about this company except for the entry level folks who can learn from the knowledge from the Senior people in the consulting roles

    Cons

    - Management have no empathy on their employees
    - Salary is very less
    - Another company around the corner just bill's out heavy to the clients and pay their employees pennies, some times they send irrelevant skill set holders to the client locale and ruin the project

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - If you are able to successfully ruin the project you bid don't blame the employees you put on that project, also do not ruin the employees reputation in and out side the market

    Cons

    - Poor leadership.

    - Thinks they are at par with Accenture but they are just a branded body shop.
    - Lacks any good client base.. a local supplier of IT man power to Columbus based businesses.
    - Low quality delivery by faked up consultants.
    - Not a choice for anyone with Career aspirations.
    - A very few technology leaders who are the backbone of the company.
    - Zero percent functional or visionary leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look forward and adapt to change .. Learn from companies that have grown 150 times bigger than ICC within the same age as ICC.
