    I worked at IGI Global full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The golf course next door will give you a very scenic view. The new HR guy is awesome and tries very hard to make the best of what is a horrible place to work and an upper management staff that is comprised entirely of arrogant people who have no idea (and no experience) in managing people.

    Cons

    Well there very many cons, in fact, for most people it is impossible to get their actual job done in a day. Between people giving tasks to do that either 1) make no sense and that are probably a mistake, maybe even a mistake that you will have to spend time fixing later in the week or 2) are just simply impossible to do. The people giving you advice about your job have never done your job before or maybe did that... job eight or so years ago, so they won't be able to effectively help you. People quit all the time after getting frustrated with the arrogant upper management, the poor communication and the minuscule pay. After they quit, get ready to take on all their tasks. No, this will not result in a pay increase or even a title change for you. While there are plenty of friendly people, there are also a lot of people with little patience, bad tempers or, in some very unfortunate cases, people who do not know how to conduct themselves properly in a work setting around ladies. And no, there is nothing that will be done about this by management. Women are treated very poorly here with no respect. You will worry every single day about whether or not you will get fired. Not because of anything you have done wrong, but just because you are aware of how easily the CEO will dispose of you. If you stay a couple weeks, a few people will have already been fired or quit before they were fired. The level of job security you will have is at zero, all the time. No one will listen to you, especially the upper management, you direct supervisors will try their best, but the CEO and Managing Director have final say and they don't care about you and will openly admit to not caring about you. The CEO has actually fallen asleep in meetings while being spoken to. He has also been known to count his money and randomly get up and leave during meetings as well. A word of advice, if you think all the negative reviews on here were just written by a small sampling of particularly mad people, it really isn't. In fact, there is a pact in the office that everyone has. The newest person is "protected" for their first two weeks, after which everyone starts revealing how bad things really are, how much of a struggle every day is for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Demolish and restart from the ground up. There is no foundation here to build on.
