Integrated Project Management Company – Why Work For Us?

Is your project facing pressures?

A sound business strategy is essential to success. Without disciplined execution, the same strategy renders little value. Integrated Project Management Company, Inc. (IPM) is a project management consulting firm that helps you succeed where companies often fail – in implementation and execution. We advise on and execute your most complex initiatives so that you realize your desired results. 

All project management consulting firms are not equal.

IPM is not confined by the boundaries of industry or functional areas. In fact, our key differentiators set us apart regardless of project type.


At IPM, we don’t hand you a plan and walk away. Our professional project management consultants work on-site and are committed to the success of your most complex projects. We seamlessly integrate into your teams and have the business acumen required to ensure your project goals align with your company’s strategy.


We take on your initiatives and drive your projects, allowing you to focus your time and energy where they’re needed most. Our objective leaders ask the tough questions to keep your organization progressing. We lead your projects and your teams.

Knowledge & Insight 

We know project management. We helped shape the field of project management consulting more than 25 years ago. The majority of our project management consultants are PMP-certified and many are Six Sigma certified. We don’t rest on our laurels. Our employees receive ongoing training and attend industry conferences to keep them abreast of evolving best practices.

Proven Results 

We can help you meet critical goals that impact your bottom line. We’ve cut timelines in half, salvaged strategic alliances on the brink of collapse, and delivered 400% ROI on our services.

Collective Intelligence 

When you entrust your project to us, you become the beneficiary of knowledge accumulated from 3,500+ projects across more than 300 clients. Our experience not only built the foundation for our current practices, but enables us to continually hone our methodologies.


One size does not fit all.

Successful completion of your project demands agile delivery of processes aligned with your business strategy. At IPM, we approach every project with a fresh, objective perspective to meet the needs of your project — and your company. After we're gone, you'll have processes and tools to keep things running smoothly.

IPM's Project Management Process

Create big-picture strategy

IPM's first step is to identify the problem you face and define the vision for a solution. This process is critical to ensure all team members share a common understanding of the project and agree upon its specific goals.

Define project Scope

Together we define your beginning and end points. We analyze options; develop resources, time, and cost estimates; and agree on deliverables, of which help prevent costly scope creep.

Develop business justification

Few businesses invest without considering their return. IPM works proactively with you to document your project's value, from cost savings to increased sales to quicker turnaround.

Design robust plans and schedules

IPM develops comprehensive plans that serve as a roadmap for your entire project. These plans link interdependent activities and personnel, internally and across third parties. Such precise input enables us to coordinate interconnections and identify bottlenecks or other obstacles that need to be addressed.

Mitigate risks

To avoid "fighting fires", IPM identifies potential project risks early on. We then quantify the magnitude and likelihood of your risks and determine how to prevent or quickly respond to them.

Drive plan execution

The best-laid plans mean nothing if on-the-ground execution falls short. This is especially so the more complex the project and varied the stakeholders. Our project leaders work on-site and accept direct responsibility for managing schedules and budgets, proactively tracking and resolving issues, and capturing project metrics.

Orchestrate communications

IPM develops a formalized communications structure that defines who needs to know what and when, and creates project-specific channels for sharing information. Transparency is key. The team then can agree upon goals, raise and resolve issues, and become a cohesive group across functions and facilities.

Build team unity

IPM professionals use well-honed facilitation skills to work through conflict and political pressures to reach mutual decisions in support of project goals. As an objective third party with no agenda of its own, IPM can serve to bring disparate individuals and teams to consensus.

    I have been working at Integrated Project Management Company full-time (More than 3 years)


    Amazing people top to bottom. The work is challenging and meaningful. I can't say enough about the culture here. Such a genuinely caring and ethical company. I feel that IPM is meeting the challenges of growth head on and is evolving in a really smart way. What I have seen in my time here gives me great confidence for the future...they are ready to meet the challenges of a changing industry and are evolving smartly.


    The work is not for everybody. A lot is expected and there are times when long hours and travel will be a requirement of the job. IPM does a great job of balancing that, but just know that you are a consultant and there are challenges that are built into carrying that title.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show a willingness to evolve. Continue being transparent. Continue to hire the best...they are a joy to work with.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.


    The interview process was very organized and well thought of. Everything was planed by the recruiting team, I just had to show up.

    As for the interviews, it felt more like a conversation rather than an interview. The interviewers were very cordial, respectful, extremely nice and gave feedback. I learned a lot about IPM and myself through the interview process.

    All in all, it was a good experience and I had the chance to interact with smart and down to earth people. The whole team, from the recruiters to senior management were great!
