    I worked at iRunway full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is one of the best places to work straight after college. iRunway focuses on quality of people rather than quantity, so you get to work with some of the smartest people around.

    Cons

    Because the nature of work is so unique, it becomes a little difficult to explore other career options once you've worked here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help people understand their progression in the company better. Also, educate them as to how this experience will help them in their future careers

    I worked at iRunway full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great peer culture. client facing projects. direct interaction with clients

    Cons

    the nature of the work is repetitive. Personal growth is rewarding but takes a lot of time to reach the next stage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the team is small, I think more focus should be on the well-being of the employees. There is lack of such an understanding.

    I worked at iRunway full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Chilled out life, can easily get time for other important things in life if not staffed in a project with critical deadlines

    Cons

    No career direction, senior management clueless, proper guidance not given at various stages of an employee's career, no scope if you want to switch jobs, inefficient resource management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always try to ensure that the workload is shared among ALL the full-time employees, not a few selected unfortunate ones

    Full of learning, excellent personal as well as professional growth, smart peer group

    I have been working at iRunway full-time

    Pros

    You're vested with a lot of responsibilities, therefore, the learning curve is steep. A lot of client interaction from an early stage of your career hones your communication skills and boosts your self-confidence. An amazing peer group (from tier-1 colleges) gives you a competent environment and an opportunity to excel in different aspects of life.

    Cons

    Consulting in a niche domain such as Intellectual Property leaves you with a few switching options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make frequent interactions with the lower management to understand their pain points.
