    Pros

    Perfect for those with the achieving mindset. Like all things in life, your mindset plays a huge part. For this reason, with the right mindset, you will encounter amazing opportunities and challenges from this company. At the same time, you learn about yourself, your capabilities, and provide huge additions to your growing resume/career. Very inspiring CEO. Great mentor to be around.

    Cons

    We sometimes change direction and lose time. We are a very entrepreneurial company. There are pros and cons to that. More pros than cons, though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to increase focus on communication. That is key. We are doing that so we must keep it up.

    Pros

    Great Coworkers, Interaction with Healthcare Professionals and Dealers

    Cons

    Too much Turnover.Too easy to get terminated despite helping company grow. Only yes men will be retained.

    Advice to Management

    Show some loyalty to your Employees who are actually contributing. Yes men get you nowhere fast.

    Pros

    iCRco will give you a lot of opportunities to work on a lot of interesting projects. The only thing that will limit you is yourself.

    Cons

    Some disgruntled co-workers who don't like having the owner participate in the design process. He owns it, and he is employing you.

    Advice to Management

    A little more consistency would be good. The company and projects seem to shift direction quite a bit. Having an overall vision does not work will if it changes daily.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with. Given a good amount of freedom.

    Cons

    Uncertain about this company's longevity. This place is a revolving door in terms of employment. Managers have been around for a few years.

    Pros

    Who comments on the Pros, they are the micro-management and/or Yes-man people.
    Good for the people who does nothing but blindly agree with CEO/President.

    Cons

    It is easily to get fired or layoff, if you want to do the right thing to help the company grow. It is easily to get physical hurt in the machine shop. The safety is a big issue.

    Advice to Management

    Don't trick the interviewers. Show your true face when you want to hire people. Don't waste nice people's time in their career.

    Pros

    The only positive about working at iCRco is that the people are friendly and I liked working with many of them. I was able to complete a ridiculous range of projects in a very short time period. The projects were large scale and diverse so my resume benefited strongly from many of the completed projects. The other nice thing about the job is that you can find eqivalent work easily in the area.

    Cons

    The huge, overreaching problem with the company is that the CEO/President has too much control over every project which causes a huge blockade in project process. Also, when the CEO is not directly involved, the managers are unable to create their own project management strategies, so work is completed only when you find away around the entire management team. There is also a problem with most everyone in the company being classified as an exempt salaried worker. Even people who should be non-exempt such as sales representatives and office workers are asked for overtime unpaid because of misclassification.

    Advice to Management

    Please look up the difference between exempt and non-exempt salaried workers. If you don't, you’re likely to end-up with thousands if not more in fines and fees. The CEO needs to allow others to do their job, managers who know how to manage projects should be moved into positions where they can organize, and workers who are high preforming should be rewarded.

    Pros

    You gain experience in your field and learn how to productively work with your department to meet deadlines. The benefits are decent. Good opportunity for networking and learning about other fields in addition to your own.

    Cons

    The management is disorganized and unprofessional. The expectations of employees are ridiculous and never clearly outlined. You are not given the tools you need to complete projects. Raises are rare. The equipment provided is old and dysfunctional. Some managers are condescending, rude and prejudice. Verbal praise is rarely given. This company operates on negative reinforcement rather than positive reinforcement.

    Advice to Management

    Organize plans and tasks before delegating. Brainstorm and research before presenting information at meetings. Use positive reinforcement instead of negative reinforcement. Do not employ people as managers unless they show good leadership qualities. People should not be placed in charge of projects or departments unless they have a strong background in this type of work. Reward your employees in some way to promote incentive.

    Pros

    Good health insurance benefits and they still include a match with your 401(k). There are opportunities to learn new skills, a benefit to recent college graduates.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Most employees are terminated either after one year or around the five year mark. In his own words, the CEO has called his company a "stepping stone." 90% of employees have been there less than five years.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to follow the rules, especially when it comes to OSHA. There have been way too many employees that were injured in the job because of your negligence and unwillingness to correct the many safety violations that exist. You see your employees as expendable, which is sad. Most of the injuries could have and should have been prevented.
