    I worked at Innodata Isogen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people (in terms of experience and knowhow). Many opportunities for professional growth - vertical and horizontal, if you have the persistence and the passion.

    Cons

    There are issues also - politics, misalignments, gaps in communications (behavioral) - which creates friction, inefficiencies, frustration and demotivation. But these things are reversable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From my perspective, the missing link is 'employee engagement'. If management can cross this chasm, the company can improve performance by 30, 60 or even 100%.

    Not much cons here. Just need to realise the potential of the talents within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company could Strengthen the marketing arm to sell the talents and capabilities available and continue to grow the business.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Innodata Isogen full-time

    Pros

    There's good support staff, and the large number of friendly overseas management makes it easy to cut through to problems and address issues. Benefits are reasonable, and due to the distributed locations it's possible to work from home to some degree (depending on position).

    Cons

    The biggest hurdle for the company is their desire to move away from their core competency of data conversion, specifically in the publishing world. There is a strong push from upper management and the CEO to act and think more like a software company, but without the speed or investment to make such a change. As such, the projects that get the most attention are those with low risk and high reward -- which are rare, and take a significant build-up. Typically, winning and delivering these projects last beyond a single employee or set of employees, resulting in any momentum or internal software developments falling by the side. Compensation is a positive, but there is minimal support staff once projects are won from sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build out the middle of the company and determine a singular focus for what the company means, and then grow towards that focus.
