    I worked at iCorps Technologies

    Pros

    -good play (enjoy while it lasts as they are quick to fire people). Cannot think of anything else

    Cons

    -do not get sick! (they will not provide paid sick day off)
    -management is not very good and can be careless at times
    -upper management likes "to party" and encourage that type of behavior
    -you cannot socialize with co-workers
    -when you start you will wonder why everyone is so unhappy. Work for 2 weeks and you will understand

    I have been working at iCorps Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    decent place to start off in the IT field--better then being unemployed. Great place to learn what to look for and what not to go for in the next job prospect. Good exposure to SMB industry and services (leaning more to small business <25 employees)

    Cons

    Just sort through all the previous reviews and you'll have a sense of what to expect. Horrible management, lackluster results. Simply a small business staff augmentation company rather then consulting. Big focus on up selling products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shape up--just a bunch of clowns disguised as something called management. Would never make it in any legitimate corporation.

    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.

    One of the worst jobs I had ever had the displeasure of working for.

    I worked at iCorps Technologies

    Pros

    Getting to see some fairly new technologies, management is not afraid to teach you new products.

    Cons

    - No communication what so ever.
    its like management is on vacation, permanently.
    - other consultants are rude to their one colleagues.
    - a lot of consultants were very territorial is clients and did not divulge any important information to help assist clients when consultants were busy at a site.
    - Extremely high turn over, don't get too familiar with anybody because they might quit or get fired quicker than you've met them.
    - a thankless job with no appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Change management style.
    - review how the consultants interact with one another.
    - streamline your process improvement and have the consultants document information about clients to avoid consultants from jump into a shark tank.

    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

    The clients that we work with love us. How many companies get clients to say the best things about what you do? Top notch engineers. Beer cart on Fridays. Tickets to sporting events.

    Cons

    While some people work remotely, you cannot work from home.

    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.
