    Pros

    Office closure between Christmas Eve and New Year's, summer Fridays, good experience for entry level positions, travel to other cities and countries, generous amount of PTO

    Cons

    Honestly, where to begin...the main issue is simply that this company does not value its employees. With the exodus of smart, talented people that has been going on lately, one would think someone would wake up and realize a change has to be made. However, it seems that upper management simply does not care about all the people they have lost as nothing has changed. Unattainable goals, unimpressive performance reviews and compensation structures along with minuscule room for growth make this a 2-3 year stop for many people before they move on to greener pastures.

    The sad part is that there are some really great people at IIR that make working there fun and enjoyable, but unfortunately the work environment is soured by terrible managers and coworkers who do not support their teams, do not value feedback unless it aligns with their agenda, and are seemingly only concerned with their own projects with no regard to what their colleagues may be working on.

    Advice to Management

    Read the writing on the wall (or on here for that matter). When the best thing about working for a company is the time spent outside the office instead of inside, there's a problem. Take the time to actually listen and understand what motivates employees and makes them feel valued. This model of having the majority of your staff underpaid, underappreciated, and overworked isn't sustainable. If nothing changes, don't be surprised when the good people you do have left can't take it anymore and follow those before them out the door.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to Travel, events are interesting, 9-5, employees are great, hard working and support each other.

    Cons

    Management-starting with the top is HORRIFIC. Managers are deceitful, not trustworthy and DO NOT support their teams. They DO NO value their employees, they are not honest, misrepresent themselves, the company and the position. Get everything in writing! I would NOT recommend working here.

    Advice to Management

    LEAVE, you are not welcome there!

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

    Pros

    End of year holiday vacation
    Lots of team work - if you like that
    Depending on role, there is travel to interesting places
    When you do travel, you stay at nice hotels

    Cons

    There is no money to be made here. Extremely cheap company. Lots of my coworkers hold down another job to make ends meet.

    If they try selling you on a lower base with promises of profit share, don't buy it. You receive the profit share months out, after the company recoups its own expenses money. And it's usually such a small sum, in the years I have been with the company, I have yet to see the amount promised at sign on.

    Proseses are so confusing that no one knows what to do.

    Multi tasking, here you will be a chicken without a head. Everyone's to do lists are extremely long because we are so understaffed. So there is a lot that falls through the cracks. The culture encourages blaming others. It's a negative vibe here

    Advice to Management

    This place is a lost cause. Management is so confused and is torn in so many directions I'm not sure there is hope.
