Ivie is a staffing agency.....

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Bentonville, AR

I worked at Ivie full-time for more than a year

ProsNot many....they simply put people in chairs at their clients office.

ConsPoor pay. No job security. Once employees realize they are being paid a modest fraction of what Ivie charges the client for their employees' services, good employees move on to better companies. Ivie will never hang their hat on employee retention rates....nor do they care.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your people. You pay your staff @ 1/4 of what your charging your clients for their work. You'll never keep good people and will eventually lose your cash cow clients too.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Prosability to move up in the company

ConsLOOOONG hours with out any sort or compensation, worked a month or more straight plus late nights each day. Unorganized and slow on training, they just kind of like to throw you into the thick of things and watch you drown.

Great Learning Experience, Very Poor Pay

Print Buyer (Former Employee)
Flower Mound, TX

I worked at Ivie full-time for more than a year

ProsWhile working at Ivie, I learned a lot and grew tremendously in my professional career. The people that I worked with were great which made an extremely stressful job bearable. If you are looking for an entry level position, this might be a good fit for you.

ConsThey pay at Ivie is very low and the job you are expected do is extremely stressful with a very heavy workload. Most positions are salary so you don't get compensated for all of the late nights that you will be working. If you have any experience whatsoever, do not expect to be compensated accordingly. When I left, I received a job doing a similar position making 10k+ more per year.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of hiring the majority of your employees straight out of college with no experience, spend a little more on the salaries of people with experience.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

One big dysfunctional family (Bentonville Office)

Graphic Designer (Current Employee)
Bentonville, AR

I have been working at Ivie full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people I work with are awesome. There will always be 1 or 2 coworkers that your personality clashes with, but that's everywhere you go. Overall we're like one big dysfunctional family (I mean that in a loving way). The pay is competitive and benefits are good. Good work/life balance, although a lot of hours are put in during the holiday seasons (if you are a creative). Laid back, fun environment. Again, this is coming from the creative side.

ConsPromotions are few and far between and raises other than standard cost of living are rare.
HR (Home office, Flower Mound) is a joke. They are disorganized, portray a lack of knowledge of their department and treat people like robots. When they make mistakes they don't take responsibility for their actions and will pin blame on someone else at all costs.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to do a clean sweep on your HR team in Flower Mound for the reasons listed above.

ConsCan't think of any at this time.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.
