    I have been working at IFS North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Travel is somewhat hectic but if you're young it's rewarding. Management is great and you get to work from home during your down time.

    Cons

    No cons besides having to travel 80-100 percent of the time. Would be nice if the company was public and offered stock options. 401k needs some enhancing as well.

    I do not have any cons at this time. Overall, a great company.

    Pros

    The company is extremely customer-focused, and the CEO has great vision. Employees are dedicated and hard working.

    Cons

    Marketing department management is a problem, as evidenced by the ongoing employee turnover that occurs. There are good people who work here, but staffing is not adequate for the amount of work that needs to be done. If you enjoy being micromanaged, working nearly every evening and weekend, being belittled in meetings, and bullied to meet unrealistic expectations, then this is the place for you.

    I have been working at IFS North America full-time

    Pros

    Dedicated team of people that truly care about employees, customers and quality. Swedish roots results in a contemporary company culture. Not top down...WYSIWYG. Good work/life balance. Very little turnover.

    Cons

    Some procedures and processes are inefficient but the company is continuously improving, investing and growing every year. The product offerings are functionally very deep and takes time to really understand. Technical skills and ability to pick things up quickly are key.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing...very good company!

    Pros

    I have worked here for a number of years and it is a great place to work. The people here are fantastic! I work in marketing and could not be happier with the variety of work, the people, and the culture. The IFS culture overall is second to none. The people here work hard, have fun, and are passionate about what they do. Overall a fantastic place to work…

    Cons

    I cannot think of anything at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It is unusual for a company to have such great tenure while experiencing solid growth. You must be doing something right…

    Pros

    Many employees there are professional, career oriented, and very smart. They are generous with holiday time off with pay.

    Cons

    Training was suspect for those who worked in marketing. It was a little political in terms of internal promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Please thoroughly train all of your employees, not just the engineers. Company benefits and values are strong. Understand American market more thoroughly.

    I have been working at IFS North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I haven't worked for a more supportive organization that allows me to handle projects that are assigned, give ideas and run with a new thought. The marketing team is an excellent group that is passionate about what they do and is willing to try new approaches and listen to its team members. When it comes to work life balance, they are very flexible with me. I am able to keep my private and social life the same and will work with them if they need support.

    Fantastic organization with a complex solution revolving around dynamic industries. There is always something new and intriguing to learn. I wouldn't trade this experience in for another position. I look forward to continuing to grow and gain valuable experience with IFS.

    Cons

    There isn't a con that I have. I am an adult and expect to work hard and do all I can to help the organization.
