Ideaca was the best place I have ever worked with, it cared about clients and employees, but things changed after it was bought by another company...
There is still space for management to improve.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ideaca Knowledge Services in January 2011.
I was referred to the organization by a friend of a friend. He sent my resume to the hiring manager, who later called me and scheduled a phone interview. In the phone interview, the hiring manager asked for a summary of my previous work experience and education, as well as why I chose to do the courses that I did. He also asked about my interests and future prospects within the company. After the phone interview, he scheduled a 1:1 interview a week later.
In the 1:1 interview, with a divisional manager, we went through my resume and talked about my work experience. We also went through aspects of the organization, I was pretty well prepared so it was a interesting exchange.
In the second 1:1 with a partner, we talked about more high level aspects, like the career path of consultants and the various avenues they have in the organization, we also talked about my short and long term interests as well as the management structure and culture of the organization.
I was going in as a junior consultant, I didn't have much wiggle room so I did not negotiate the offer, I pretty much took what I was given.
