    I worked at Internal Data Resources as a contractor (less than an 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.

    Pros

    Growth - I cannot even begin to articulate how much I have grown both professionally & personally because of this organization and the guidance of the current management team
    Culture - The Corporate Athlete Program is great. Call me crazy but there's something kind of fun about getting your butt out there with your teammates after a long day of work and completing something when you feel like you're too tired to do. Our Leadership Development Program consists of unlimited book resources to help you get better (I'll be honest, not a big reader, but these book are actually interesting and effective) as many OOO's as we need/want and daily on the job coaching. You constantly are going to know how you stand and what you need to do to get better. When we win, we celebrate & we celebrate big!
    $$$ - you are paid for your results. With uncapped commission, sounds cheesey, but the sky is the limit! Not to mention the occasional cash prizes for contests, lots of free company dinners, celebrations for milestones.
    It's Fun! - Yeah, there's a lot of things that go wrong, almost on a daily basis, sometimes twice a day... but it's fun to see and hear how we are positively impacting our clients and our consultants. It's fun to close deals and celebrate those victories with your co-workers who become your best friends. And it's pretty cool to be apart of something bigger than yourself.

    Cons

    It's sales. It's stressful, extremely stressful at times. You're deailing with people; people lie. You're uncomfortable on a daily basis but hey, you hopefully learn to embrace that feeling. If you're comfortable, you're NOT growing. It's hard to see the positive in that during the chaotic days but it's fun looking back and realizing the person you are becoming.
    When your company goal is to be the best, you make sacrifices. Those sacrifices sometimes look like long days or answering a call on PTO.

    If you value respect, good attitudes, and life outside of work...this place is not for you.

    Pros

    You become mentally tough and learn to take the verbal disrespect of your superiors. Other companies know what kind of a reputation IDR has and know that despite the reason you left, you are a hard worker and were just in a horrific environment.

    Cons

    The CEO is an absolute nightmare with a horrible temper. He will get up in your face and scream at you like you are a piece of trash. You are mistreated constantly and don't get a break at all during the day. You work 12 hour days and are expected to clock-out after 8 and work the rest without pay. If you have an issue and need to discuss it with your superior, the response is implying that you don't have mental toughness, you aren't driven to succeed, or some other demeaning comment. If you are thinking of working for this company and see that current employees have written GREAT reviews, that is because your boss will force you to write something positive about the company. There was 100% turnover with recruiters while I worked there. You are promised the world and treated like you are more than disposable. My advice is to think twice before working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people and not like a disposable resource that can be replaced by the next naive college graduate.

    Pros

    there are no pro's that I can express about working with this company.

    Cons

    Be very careful working with this recruiter. They will bring you in to sign all contract papers and rush you through the process, and why? Because there is stuff in the employment papers they do not really want you to read, cause if you did you probably would refuse to sign them. This company only cares about money and greed. They will not fight for you to get the pay you deserve for the time you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the contractor with respect and dignity, without them you have no business and word of mouth can spread quickly & powerfully.
