    I have been working at iCorps Technologies full-time (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.

    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!

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

    Former Employee - Consultant in Boston, MA

    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.

    Very male-centric, strong organizational culture

    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.
