    I worked at Internal Data Resources

    Pros

    IDR not only sets high goals for their employees - but also set up employees with the right tools and training to obtain them. They care a lot of fitness and the health of their employees which I see as a pro because I love working out, but if you are not into fitness this is 100% not the company for you. My favorite part of working with IDR is the "enrichment" through reading and discussing personal and professional growth books.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, their DC location was not staffed with proper leadership to enable success for their employees. I was only with them a short time but felt that there was never the opportunity to grow as a young professional right out of school since there was no one to provide guidance to someone that is new to the industry (the office consisted of myself, another recent college grad, and an account manager 2 years out of college). That being said, the training program in Atlanta, run by Sam was great, and if that support was provided in the DC location - I would likely still be there today!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the DC location is still open, provide same guidance/ another local employee like Sam in this location. Continue workouts, they are fun and great team building!

    I worked at Internal Data Resources as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are largely wonderful. The ease of transitioning into the contractual role was made easy by the cheerful and upbeat recruitment team.

    Cons

    The pay was largely disproportionate to what was fair and balanced pay for the services rendered, with the expertise held at that time. Pay was roughly 65-75% of what was industry average at that time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't withhold more pay for qualified candidates with lame excuses given as "reasons". Pay people what they're worth and you may find more people stay more loyal to your company for longer. You have a good deal right. Make that right and really stand-out from the recruiting crowd.

    Pros

    The really do care for the wellness of their employees. I did apprreciate the calls from my Engagement Manager "Ashley Parrot" to ensure all is going well and if there's anything IDR can do to improve my working experience.

    Cons

    Don't have any, enjoyed working for IDR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Probably consider paying on some but not all the main Holidays like July4th, Memorial, labor day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Maybe 2 -3 of them.

    Pros

    I've only been with IDR for about 3 months now but it's been great. I'm new to contracting so not sure what to expect. So far, the barhas been set high. I get breakfast and lunches. I have a great contact that gets me answers right away. So far, so good!

    Cons

    a lot of hours but paychecks are nice

    Pros

    Friendly, concerned willing to listen. The welcome present and card are a really nice touch especially the $10 Starbucks gift card.

    Cons

    They are a management company. If the client is misleading they are simply going to pass it along even if they hear that the client is/was misleading on their requirements for a position.

    IDR's Management is made up of Sociopaths and Narcissists

    I worked at Internal Data Resources full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was exposed to real cold calling and gained a brief understanding of the tech Industry.

    Cons

    The management here belitted me on a day to day basis; I questioned my ability to carry out basic tasks because of the way I was treated. I am not a pushover or a "weak" person; by nature I have always been regarded by peers, classmates, professors, coaches, etc as almost a little too outspoken. My experience at IDR has tremendously changed my view of myself and my understanding of how management should behave. My current management at my new organization frequently reminds me in performance reviews I need to understand my self worth and that I am actually a very capable person. IDR ruined that for me.

    Cash out, your business is failing at you are all manic.
