    I worked at iDirect Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The amount of knowledge that you gain from iDirect is unbeaten.

    Cons

    Lack of vision from Upper management, Lack of vision from management, Management missteps, poor strategic direction, lots of management frustration at the leadership level.
    Lots of people are leaving, people who have Great product knowledge, that are replaced with lower quality people.

    Advice to Management

    Become less quarterly revenue driven and seek to grow company for the long run through a strategic VISION, not reactive scrambling to try and hit the quarterly numbers. Current behavior resembles a company trying to stay afloat instead of a company driving an industry.
    There are lots of people in senior positions that don't know how to treat people. You should get them some Management coaching/training. If you don't more people will leave and it will only be a matter of time before new people see it. It's hard not to see it, but maybe you have blinders because they are best friends or great at “Brown Nosing”

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at iDirect Technologies.

    Interview

    Got the interview through a University career fair. The interviewer spent the entire time asking questions from different fields and trying to assess what team I would be a better fit for. But they never got back to me, even with a negative response. Do not reply to emails either.
