I have been working at ifb full-time (More than 5 years)
ifb has an awesome work environment with a lot of good people. As a smaller consulting firm ifb is not regulated as bigger companies so there is a lot of freedom. The flat hierarchies allow to be open and the management allows people to be themselves as long as obviously people are respectful to others.
The salary negotiations are tough. Raises in my case were around 5%-6% per year. The discussions are tedious at times also as at the end of the year when performance is evaluated team leads try to find something they can evaluated as less than 100% satisfaction. However they are open to discuss.
Advice to Management
I think ifb is great. Great people, a lot to learn, a lot to do, chances to thrive. The salaries may not always be competitive but they are good enough.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ifb (Medellín, Antioquia (Colombia)) in June 2015.
The process was quick and they didn't ask much about my experience with IT or Finance. The partner who interviewed me talked about the company and ask me about my goals and my future.
