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

Pros

A couple cute guys, LBGT friendly, I think they COO and CTO are LBGT friendly for sure. There is reasonable tolerance of work life balance. Catered food is perk here, although we also have food trucks coming that are also good.

Cons

Perhaps it's the musical chairs of how is working here today, but, we are losing ground and accounts with big name customers, e.g. Walmart etc. Seems like when Paul Touw came in there was this good inertia to grow and spend beyond a reasonable rate, and we've been paying for it every month from about 6 months of when he started. He also brought in this some silliness of what the business does verse reality. I think he lost the silliness battle and is on the street now as a 'consultant' to the company.

Advice to Management

Keep up with staff reductions and consider a new management team. When you fail with a wonder-boy, you might want to consider a wonder-girl next time.

    Pros

    Strong ownership of each employee's domain -- the teams are still small, and every person makes a very big difference to the company's performance and culture.

    Related to that, there's a fair bit of freedom to figure things out your own way.

    Upper management has a very good CV and seems to be pushing things in a good direction on the business side.

    Free food (most days) and snacks.

    Cons

    The culture is kind of vague and has distinct "cliques", though this seems to be improving

    Awkward commute (though it's better than being in the city)

    Some serious lack of maturity for lots of internal things (expense reports are on paper, there's no intranet, HR is basically non-existant, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Some of the long-timers are so dead-set resistant to change. If they don't come around, they're only hurting morale. Lose them.

    Pros

    Business Model is very intriguing

    Cons

    Weak leadership, darwinian environment, poor judgement in top loading the management team, excessive expense on analytics and SFA that don't have results. CEO is out of touch, CFO no comment, COO is full of himself, CTO is a kid, most VP's are not the brightest crayons in the box.

    Advice to Management

    Update your parachutes, as this boat is sinking
