I worked at IIR USA full-time
Good location. Great team. Had a focus on putting enough time into the events to get them right. Had the week between xmas and new year's as a bonus week off. Competitive salary and at the time, generous profit share.
Terrible management. Rotating managers constantly. No company culture. No feeling that they cared if a person stayed or went. No opportunity for promotion.
Advice to Management
Come up with a career path for your employees and a real review system. Put investment into fostering a team mentality across all the portfolios.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IIR USA (New York, NY) in July 2015.
The whole process was very positive; each person I met with right up to the CEO was extremely professional and engaging. They asked me thoughtful questions, making it clear they are not novices and know the attributes they are looking for in a candidate for this role. I had about 4 interviews in total, two of which included multiple people. Skyped with the CEO and a Managing Director at the end, both of which were very sharp.
Positive vibes in the office, and everyone I saw greeted me. IIR is evolving into something better than events alone. I'm sure they will take in a lot of new clients if they stick to their initiatives. Events are well know and quality is higher than the norm from what I learned in the 2-3 week interview process
Interview was moderate to difficult if you include a written portion which took me time to prepare. I think I nailed it became they talked about my answers in the follow-up interview (which I appreciated given the time to write this).
Reasons for Declining
I accepted an offer from a different company (but it was a hard decision)
