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

Pros

- Facility looks nice and good crew that tries to keep it that way
- Ability to hire good people, although they can't keep them (Don't be fooled)

Cons

- Very few (if any) good managers, especially at the executive level
- Long time employees have been promoted past the point of their incompetence
- Dishonest and unethical behavior is allowed and even enabled by executive management
- In many areas employees are not valued and work really hard while the management team reaps all the benefits
- Work-life balance is non-existent in some areas
- Management spends more time with in-fighting and protecting themselves than trying to do the right thing and grow the business
- Limited processes that aren't actually followed, employees have to work in an ad hoc environment and are then blamed if things go wrong

Advice to Management

If you aren't going to listen to the new good employees you are bringing in and are just going to listen to whatever those executives who have exceeded their capabilities tell you, then don't waste your money hiring good people.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for! Intelligent Decisions offers competitive benefits to employees and really abides by an open door policy. I feel comfortable reaching out to my peers as well as senior management. There is opportunity for growth and the company challenges you constantly. One of the things I enjoy most about this organization is the small company feel, but a large company reputation and footprint in the industry. The number of employees and the fact that this is a privately held company leads to increased flexibility and more individual attention to our customer set. I'm also proud of the community outreach done by the company!

    Cons

    Measures could be taken to improve communication between all departments. As mentioned, there are very talented employees throughout the organization so it is essential that we have open lines of communication.

    Advice to Management

    Continue recognizing the bright group of employees you have working at this organization. People at all levels have great ideas to push this company to the next level! Continue enabling them with the tools to do their jobs effectively.

    Pros

    Company seems to be growing....but.....
    Decent benefits
    Some smart people who are great to work with

    Cons

    Seems like power is in the hands of the wrong people
    Favoritism prevails
    People feel unappreciated
    If you are not close to CEO, nobody knows who you are or what you do.

    Advice to Management

    The little people are also important, make sure to show appreciation to all the hardworking people, not just those close to the CEO.
