    I have been working at Iron Bow Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exciting culture, lots of new opportunities and growth. High energy, everyone can contribute and make a difference. 2014 brought a new strategic plan with buy in and participation from each area of the organization. That's one of the great advantages of a smaller organization. If you want to contribute there is plenty of opportunity to do so. Very little politics, everyone works extremely hard and is proud of the work they do so they don't fuss with each other. The company is built on the Iron Bow Way which focuses on respect for everyone. I'm proud to work here.

    Cons

    We work extremely hard, its very demanding for many of us. All is all, the advantages FAR exceed this concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First I appreciate that you've done such a great job keeping the company healthy, a tough job for government contractors. When possible, some added bandwidth would be greatly appreciated.

    I worked at Iron Bow Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people that worked there in other departments outside of sales were very nice. Good base salary for sales reps. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Management and CEO very biased and had favorites that they protected. They allowed their favorites to trample all over the other reps and poach in territories that are not assigned to them. A lot of back stabbing among the reps.
    Management stressed the fact that they don't lay people off, during the interview process to attract new employees, but are very quick to "eliminate positions" if you're struggling to hit your number or complain. Not a healthy environment to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone with fairness and by the same rules as the handful you have up on a pedestal.

    I have been working at Iron Bow Technologies as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Iron Bow really cares about the workplace environment. They try to hire employees that fit into the culture and make the office an enjoyable but productive space. Senior management is very open—the CEO can be seen walking around the office a couple times a week. The HR department puts on events like a Health and Wellness fair and a 90 day exercise challenge to build office camaraderie and promote a healthy lifestyle. The interns are looked out for. They get meetings with leaders of each division to get a better feel for how the company functions. The also get opportunities to plan fundraising activities as well as visit Iron Bow partners to see how they conduct business.

    Cons

    The commute is sometimes tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep expanding into different markets and keep the communicating the updated views and goals.

    Pros

    Company benefits were very good, for a small company. There is not much more to say that is good about Iron Bow Technologies.

    Cons

    Training for job positions are lacking. When asking for more training, managers tend not to allow room for improvement; they tend to draw their own conclusions, and do not base decisions on facts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider allowing room for an employee to ask for help in order to improve their ability to support their job functions adequately.

    Pros

    Good pay and employee perks. Friendly work atmosphere

    Cons

    Lack of stability as a company. Downturns in economy lead to lay-offs. Management seems unsettled. High turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on hiring only senior level people and spend some time training and improving the skills of the people you already have. New employees seem to be left to fend for themselves
