I have been working at iCore Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

-Visibility (your work counts and is seen)
-Company growth opportunity (company is looking to expand)
-Financial stability
-Training/certification programs
-Nice facility & location (heart of Tysons Corner)

Cons

iCore's corporate culture is not for everyone.

I listed "visibility" as a pro but it can be a "con" for others. You have to be accountable for your work and cannot let anything slip. There is never a slow moment at iCore, so you always have to be prepared (have reports ready, be quick to answer questions).

Again..iCore is not for everyone. If you want a 9-5 job, iCore is not for you. You have to be willing to work until the job is done. It is good because top performers are heavily rewarded but bad if you just want to do bare minimum.

    Pros

    Culture – strong first impression – company has several noteworthy accolades, nice office, and a competitive, fast-paced work environment
    -Most employees are young, fun, hard working and ambitious, and most managers work hard too
    -Mandatory ‘be here for a career’ mentality attracts impressionable and dedicated employees
    -The upgraded espresso machine helps pepper the step!

    Technology – emerging market over the next twenty years
    -marketing strategy for hosted voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) as voice-over-private-internet (VoPI)

    Cons

    Culture – demands 10-12+ hour work days (across all departments)
    -No work/life balance
    -Low employee morale and high turnover/burnout
    -Employment/promotion fill shoes, rather than through organic growth
    -Supported by shady outsourced recruiters

    Leadership – takes advantage of young and impressionable employees
    -Executive Micromanagement
    -Middle management lacks vision, experience and training

    There is a general lack of trust between management and employees/departments

    Technology – there is surprisingly low customer satisfaction overall, but that is an industry-wide problem

    Advice to Management

    It was often said at iCore that, "there is no 'I' in TEAM, but there is an 'I' in WIN!" to motivate employees to work hard to achieve greatness...

    -Be straightforward with your core objectives or at least be accountable for what you say
    -Do not work your people in to the ground and then present them with an option to resign or be fired
    -Respect your ‘manageable and impressionable’ career-oriented employees who are committed to work for you
