I have been working at International Human Resources Development Corp full-time (More than a year)
Well respected products; good company overall. The people are great and the diversity of ages, genders and ethnic backgrounds is surprising considering the small size of the company. With a small company comes less structure, more ability to consider the personal side of things. Some of the policies around dress code and working hours could probably be more flexible, but the atmosphere is professional. Senior managers seem genuinely interested in their employees well-being. You are not expected to work all hours - reasonable 8 hour days are the norm.
There is room for improvement in some policies and practices, and more flexibility in working from home, 'jeans' on Friday and the like would be appreciated. Need more transparency in how decisions are made. Some changes are happening but could be moving faster.
Advice to Management
Allow employees more freedom and provide more communication on company strategy. For an Education Company, there is not enough emphasis on employee training and advanced education support.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at International Human Resources Development Corp (Boston, MA) in September 2013.
Very slow process. Took more than 2 months for them to get it together and 4 trips to the office before it was over. Hard to be interviewed by some folks that had no understanding of the position being posted. HR made the process much more arduous than was necessary.
There was no negotiation phase.
