    Excellent Opportunity

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Integrated Research

    Pros

    Dynamic work place, honest, supportive with commitment to develop young talent. Strong sales, support and pre-sales. Marketing and Consulting Services making huge progress. Excellent management, balance sheet, earnings and leadership. Responsive Product Marketing with strong RandD team. HR delivers leading edge training with education reimbursement program. The finance team is productive with expenses being reimbursed twice monthly.

    Cons

    Would like to see stronger and consistent commitment to long term incentives to top producers and contributors. Would like to see additional innovation around new products and markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing with incremental flexibility to enhance the work climate to better support the company culture.

    Managers Obviously Driving Up The Approval Ratings

    I worked at Integrated Research

    Pros

    Nothing...Other than I no longer work there. Check with former employees on LinkedIn and ask them how it was. Really one of the worst places I've ever worked. Pathetic that the management has to post false reviews here.

    Cons

    Everything. Horrible unethical managers that treat their employees terribly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the new CEO. Fire everyone in the US office management team. They are cowards and bullies.

    I have been working at Integrated Research full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    strong management, support of developing employees skills, training (internal and externally) encouraged, lots of team building activities (kickoffs, roundtables, team outings).

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours due to being a smaller company. Headquarters being in Sydney can create some time conflicts and product management issues. Overall, these issues are not pressing or a huge impact.

    Integrated Research is an agile company with decent upward movement if you start from the bottom.

    Pros

    Great minds and kind people, leadership in the Americas is dynamic.

    Cons

    R&D/ Corporate HQ in Sydney, Australia presents challenges, and you must be very self motivated to train yourself

    Corruption and Incompetence

    • Culture & Values

    Former Employee - Sales in Denver, CO
    Former Employee - Sales in Denver, CO

    I worked at Integrated Research full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As someone mentioned before, it's always fun to watch the people get drunk at the Christmas party.

    Cons

    Everything
    - Pay: The compensation plan looks good on paper but they find ways not to pay.
    - Leadership: Corrupt and incompetent.
    - Work life balance: Zero. Employees are treated very badly and expected to give "110% effort".
    - Culture & Values: No ethics. Executives will do what's best for them and don't care about the long term benefit to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to know what's wrong with the company stop blaming the people that work for you. Morale is low because of micromanagement, motivation by fear/intimidation, and poor leadership.

    Pros

    Everyone gets drunk at the christmas party and it's fun to watch.

    Cons

    The leader of the US organization is only concerned about the monthly numbers and his paycheck. He and his management team will reorganize the sales teams time and again to pull commissions away from the person who did all of the work, and cut the workforce to the detriment of the longterm growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chane the compensation plan for the US leadership team to include long term incentives. The current comp plan is clearly laid out on a quarterly or yearly basis. Any stock options you are providing that are supposed to fix management short term gratification are clearly not large enough to accomplish what they are intended to do - ensure decisions are made for the long term.

    Some departments are really fun, casual atmosphere, Company is performing very well and growing rapidly, excellent coworkers, people are eager to help each other when they have time

    Cons

    too much delegation without enough real leadership and/or instruction, salary is not commensurate to workload or actual hours worked, work/life balance is "frowned upon" and a perception of 24/7 availability and productivity is encouraged.

    Pros

    Regular lunches, great people, some interesting work

    Cons

    Old legacy technologies a lot of C++ and XML used, few teams are working with C# ASP.NET, not many senior developers in new technologies most new employees are graduates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New leadership has good ideas to help IR grow but I think there needs to be new senior technical management and talent.

    A company where everyone can make a difference - smart people

    • Comp & Benefits

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Integrated Research full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    IR is small enough that you can make a difference but punches above its weight. It has a global presence, offering the potential to move roles and relocate. This company has great potential and there are plenty of smart people within it. Minimal politics and a 'can do' culture makes it a great place to work.

    Cons

    If you have come for a very large company and expect everything to be done for you, you may be disappointed. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New management has some great ideas and the potential to make IR a major global success, keep it up.
