    I worked at iCorps Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly culture, great CEO. The salary and perks are pretty competitive. Some opps to grow (certifications, courses, etc). Felt appreciated

    Cons

    Serving multiple clients every day can get grueling, especially when you have to squeeze a visit into headquarters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your finger on the pulse of how tech changes the nature of the business (like cloud) and the new opportunities it creates.

    I have been working at iCorps Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    *Great hours and quality of life balance.
    *Independence in decision-making, as long as you can back it up.
    *Great people and a good support structure.

    I read a lot of reviews about iCorps before I took the job, and I was a little skeptical. What I found was an atmosphere that is much more positive than the negative reviews would suggest: The company takes good care of its employees and the workload isn't overwhelming. What is different from a lot of companies is that the employees are expected to stay busy and productive, even if there is nothing specifically scheduled: Basically there aren't a lot of days sitting around drinking coffee and talking baseball. There are utilization metrics in place to curtail idle time, and that could be jarring to someone new to consulting, I guess.

    Cons

    The only real downside I can see so far is really a matter of perspective: If you go into this job expecting to have your hand held or expecting to sit and collect a paycheck, you'll be disappointed. Consultants that are hired, I have personally found, are expected to be self-motivated and expected to find ways to stay busy. This is not a place where talking baseball around the water cooler is a normal practice.

    I have been working at iCorps Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People, company culture, autonomy, variety in work assignments, ideas are respected, etc. It seriously took me a year and a half of bouncing from job to job trying to find not only a mix of people that I enjoy working with, but somewhere where I can really share my knowledge, ideas, and experience...and I finally found it at iCorps...true story!

    Cons

    None, but be prepared to work...because we work hard & play hard! :)

    Keep doing the great job that you're doing!

    I worked at iCorps Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with a diverse group of intelligent consultants constantly fuels you to bring it each and every day. iCorps has a wide ranging client base that allows you to interact with various industries. If you love technology and designing creative solutions, it's a great place to work. There are always opportunities for interesting consulting work and the fact that iCorps has multiple offices in the east coast is a guarantee that you will be always working on something interesting. Lastly and more importantly, management was always accessible and provided mentorship that was invaluable to shaping my career.

    Cons

    As is with the nature of consulting, be prepared to work hard and long hours to meet client expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to give consultants more tools to succeed both with clients and personally.

    Very male-centric, strong organizational culture

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA

    I worked at iCorps Technologies

    Pros

    excellent growth prospects, recession-proof industry, friendly coworkers, good work ethic, charitable work, many long-term clients that senior management has a good relationship with

    Cons

    strong top-down command-and-control culture, senior management can disparage and belittle consultants, little opportunity for career development, senior management has a very old school style of management better suited for the 1960s

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat consultants with respect, don't ask others to do for you what you would not be prepared to do for others, new business development needs a top to bottom commitment that includes a two year strategic plan with tactical goals that can be measured easily.

    Pros

    well. some people are nice, but after about 1 month of working there, they all turn cold and heartless.
    if you get laid off you can collect.

    Cons

    401K is deceiving. The company makes a deposit in your account 1x per year, and keeps the accrued interest.
    Women: as you know most men in the IT industry are sexist and demeaning. this company is NO different....watch out!!!!
    office environment of FEAR!!! see Jack Welch at GE! No one is safe
    Constant lay offs - 50 people or less max at all times - in one year 10 people left/laid off/fired.
    No future planning. New office space with limited sq to grow....but yet there's 'plans' to grow by XX%??!!!
    Utilization meetings are weekly to determine if you are being utilized over the 70% threshold. If not there's a good chance you may be laid off soon.
    Consultants are asked to upsell the clients to other services. This should be a sales job.
    Ask about turnover rate for admin staff - OTHER than executives - see admin assistants, HR reps, marketing, receptionist, sales reps - Accounting and operations steady.
    Do an extensive search on LinkedIn to see how many people have been in and out of the company within a year.
    Upper management has a bulldog type mentality.
    some top executives go out to questionable establishments during work hours
    No communication between executives and rest of staff. Top executives hold onto key information and its not told to employees

    Don't get sick....there are No sick days. You WILL LOSE pay!
    Don't come in 10-15 minutes late within a month, you will docked for 1/2 day Unplanned PTO.
    Drinking in the name of team morale and social harmony....Events in the afternoon and evening revolve around drinking which will affect your work habits.
    To Summarize:
    Go on an interview and ask about: 401K, office environment, drinking, employee turnover (except for Accounting/Operations), uppper managment philosophy and Jack Welch leadership style, attendance, and ask what they think is lacking there....
    I would NEVER recommend someone to work there.....EVER!!!!

    Pros

    None than I can think of.

    Cons

    One of the worst working environments I’ve ever encountered in my twenty years of employment. A very unfriendly, controlling atmosphere, any conversations with co-workers should always be work based, there is no socializing or free exchange of ideas.
