    Pros

    People are friendly, laid back atmosphere, you work hard and get your work done and no one bothers you, assigned mentor for 90 days, team luncheons, able to be in a specialized contract position or work on broad contracts, good benefits, advancement opportunities, posts available positions internally and externally, job rotation available to gain knowledge in other areas. Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    Pay could be higher for position, open floor plan; gets noisy when on the phone, not much privacy, takes some getting use to. No formal work from home policy, wfh flexibility is determined differently by each manager. Young company, most people have only been employed in their positions for 1 year or less, just starting to move toward more formal policies and processes, managment not consistent with policies and processes, no cafeteria on site only lunch room.

    Advice to Management

    Would like to see managers more consistent with processes and policies, such as weekly or bi-weekly one-on-one direct report meetings, better performance review interaction and communication, better leadership from managment, would like to see manager's trained more in area of leadership, motivation and support of direct reports in their growth within the company.

    Pros

    Some of the sourcing work was strong. The stronger sourcing leaders negotiated good deals for customers. However, the leaders I worked for tried to push good deals to ridiculous deals, and suppliers backed out. They wanted suppliers to provide goods essentially for free..which resulted in long delays in securing supplier contracts.

    Cons

    Not sure where the other comments have came from on this site. But across-the-board employees were miserable at this company, and turnover was through the roof. Professionals in the field were given unreasonable expectations and treated like trash. Working conditions at client sites were abysmal, and employees were allowed $25/day per diem to eat, among other ridiculous items. People I've interviewed recently who have worked there relay similar stories, so things haven't changed.

    Advice to Management

    The Vice Presidents should all be replaced, along with their cronies in the field. Secure some project management expertise (real PM stuff, not the work you're doing now, which you call project management) and have honest contracts with both customers and suppliers. Treat supplier negotiations as win/win vs. I win, you lose. Treat your employees honestly and with respect. And get a bigger office.

    Cons

    ICG Commerce has a friendly work environment and everyone has potential to grow. However, you have to be lucky to be placed in a buying center that has the management who can train. I'm currently employed with the company, so i'm not going to be giving the company name we're outsourcing for. But we recently let go one of our employees because they struggled with their performance. The employee was still learning since they'er new. I blame it on the management who hasn't trained well enough for them to succeed. I also knew some other employees who haven't been given a good hand here. I don't know if this is the reason why ICG chooses to hire temps instead of hiring within the company to avoid any legality.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way to train employees. Everyone has their own learning curve and it's important to communicate. Don't just say, "Look over your notes" and continue chatting with your friends. Perhaps start interviewing the employees yourselves instead of having the temp agencies do it for you. That way you can have a better understanding on who you're bringing on board. In this economy, people can't afford to be taken advantage of.

    Pros

    Friendly Atmosphere
    Free Coffee
    Room for advancement
    Good training

    Cons

    When I joined ICG Commerce, the fist thing they had me do was training. I took good notes and observed everyone at my buying center for two weeks. However, I was let go without given a reason as to why. I showed up on time, took plenty of notes, asked good questions and did everything they told me to do. Two weeks after I started, I was told not to come back by the recruiter from the temp agency, not ICG Commerce themselves. I wasn't given any actual work there, just went through training.

    If you were to get a job with these guys, make sure you know what you're doing. If you have a good stable job already before ICG Commerce, keep it!

    The buying center I worked for was the whirlpool buying center. Everyone in that buying center is nice to you. However, don't trust the ones in charge.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to let someone go, tell them in person and tell them why they're being let go. Don't be cowards and have the temp agency do your dirty work. I'm sure i'm not the only person who went through something like this. Grow up and be professional.

    Pros

    Besides AT Kearney, ICGC really is the best place to be a sourcing professional if you are looking to grow. You will be put into new and challenging situations often. You will work very hard, but will learn an absolute ton. The name recognition of ICG Commerce in the sourcing world is very strong. Working here for one year is like three anywhere else and you will be recruited as a result. Unfortunately, you will have to sign a non-compete clause, so you will need to lie when you leave. You will be exposed to many of the best and the brightest in the sourcing world and while everyone is busy, everyone I have worked with will spend their time to help you when you need it. Your experience will differ completely based on your clients and managers. ICG Commerce generally works with consumer packaged goods and manufacturing clients, so it is a little less demanding than the financial clients. Overall, the management is receptive to new ideas and willing to experiment and CEO Carl Guarino is great. HQ in KOP is great if you like a caual work environment and can get used to pod life without any cubical walls. It encourages interaction with your team. If you have ADD and look up everytime someone walks by, this is not the place for you.

    Cons

    ICGC's internal structure is difficult to navigate. You will need to be in KOP to learn how the company works when you are hired. People outside of KOP such as Category Leads and Program Managers will find you need to be back in KOP more often then you thought, even though the systems make it very easy to work from anywhere. The project management tool is great, but takes lots of time if used correctly. If you are not good with change, you should not work here. ICG Commerce is growing at 30% per year, and as such, ICG is suffering from the growing pains everyone would - you are likely to be overworked at times.

    Advice to Management

    As ICGC grows and it gets harder to find quality consultants in KOP, consider offices in other major cities with sourcing talent. PMs have financial incentives that are not in line with overall company performance. Growth once at "Lead" level is very limited.
