I worked at iCore Networks full-time (Less than a year)
I was able to negotiate a nice salary and bonus (on Paper). There is a lot of energy and initially perceived positivism. It took a lot for me to find something good to say about this company honestly. Icore gave me the checklist I now carry for traits and tendencies I refuse to accept at my place of business. This is a place that will help you fully appreciate it when you get somewhere great!!!
This place is nothing more than a sales machine. They send non-technical sales personnel to essentially architect their solutions and throw a massive jumble of ridiculous demands on your lap that are not possible given the circumstances and refuse to address critical issues and potential points of failure. They have a just do it attitude (Engineering doesn't work that way). They will not have platform changes properly vetted they just buy third party products that are not right for their environment and install them instead of doing their own integration work. They WILL. Repeat WILL; ask you to lie to clients that are experiencing difficulties with their service which will reflect badly on you after you wise up and leave. You will be asked to engage and assist in perpetuating their questionable accounting practices also. This company has the most hacked together platform I have ever experienced and a low uptime rate. They refuse the wisdom of their engineering team and collaboration is frowned upon, creativity is condemned, and how/why are questions that will get you in some trouble here (because most don't know). And that salary; Cut it in half because of the hours you wind up putting in. You also have almost no hope of receiving the negotiated bonus. They will work you for two days straight to try to cover their image internal to the company in order to keep the confidence of the sales staff; without really implementing the huge amount of changes they need to create a stable cloud platform; so nothing is getting better. The director has a frat boy mentality and will throw his team under the bus at a whim. Don't let them sell you a job; or do the choice is yours.
Advice to Management
Everyone buying into the scheme you are selling will be the demise of what could be a good company. With yes men all around nobody progresses. If you can't be honest about things you are doing you probably shouldn't be doing them. Paying attention to details is not optional in engineering. Last but not least stop the questionable accounting practices (counting chickens before they hatch).
