    I have been working at SolutionsIQ full-time (More than a year)


    SolutionsIQ is an Agile company, so there are no managers hawking over you and ensuring your productive. I get to talk to people performing such diverse functions as CEO, President, IT Support, Recruiter, Sales, Consultant and Contractor--and it's so easy because people leave their egos at home. Everyone is invested in the company's success, especially as we continue to grow nationally and globally. We have the best Agile technical and workflow coaches around, perhaps in the world, mostly because they know that they have to constantly stay ahead of the game rather than let their game get stale. We frequently have what's called Gatherings where all or part of the company gets together to recharge, reconnect, focus on improvements, and just have fun! I love my team because each person brings a unique mix of expertise, knowledge, perspective and attitude. To anyone wishing to work at SolutionsIQ, I say bring your A game because, while our group is knowledgeable, fun and easygoing, we also have a high standard for success.


    Like any medium-sized company, SolutionsIQ is experiencing some growing pains. In fact, this is an area that SolutionsIQ really differentiates itself from other typical hierarchical companies. Employees who feel a lack can clearly voice their concerns to their peers and leadership and even work with others to enact the change they want to see. It isn't a perfect system but continuous improvement is a company tenet. Otherwise, the lack of traditional managers sometimes makes it difficult to know who to talk to about delicate matters, but John and Charlie and the other leaders keep communication open and candid. SolutionsIQ tries to maintain good relationships with people during and after their employment here because good people may test other waters, but it's important that they feel like it's okay to come back if an exploratory change doesn't pan out. Many staffers have left and come back--proof that there are cons, but it's a much bigger pro that alumni readily come back.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Leadership/Stewards: Perhaps a vision of the longer-term future would help us understand near-term decisions. Otherwise, keep up the good work. It's all new territory so nobody's got it figured out.

    Agile Coach Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at SolutionsIQ (Bangalore (India)) in June 2014.


    The interview process took over 4 months with them asking me to "have a chat" with several (5) of their existing coaches. I had to constantly hound them to figure out the status and there were at least 2 instances when the person who was supposed to interview me did not show up nor did he send any intimation which resulted me a lot of time being wasted on my side. Though I got an offer, I ended up declining it since I was not impressed with the quality of the people (existing Agile coaches) who interviewed me.
