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

    Pros

    It's a paycheck but beyond that it's not a place to be - perhaps a stepping stone. Beyond that there isn't much in the pros section

    Cons

    No progression, no support, no guidance or transparency from leadership. Employees have low moral, with all these factors it's hard to be productive.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate ISay employee surveys
