I have been working at Integrated Project Management Company full-time

No Major Cons - Travel is common with consulting but IPM does go above and beyond to attempt minimizing long term negative impacts to employees
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company (Burr Ridge, IL) in December 2014.
The company personnel seemed very interested and spent a lot of time trying to get to know me and said my experience was awesome. However, they never let me know how I did or that they offered to another candidate. The interviewers seemed very hard working but the diversity in the workforce in questionable.
