    Pros

    Gary Nemmers is an excellent CEO and openly shares what's going on. It is rare to find an enterprise software CEO so willing to share so much and be involved with each customer he can so closely. Consider the well-known competitor with the CEO who commutes back and forth from the Silicon Valley to the Midwest, and Gary's commitment is clear. He moved here. He doesn't jet in and out. And he is one of the most customer-centric CEOs in the ERP space today.

    It's a great culture where people really care about each other. Everyone greets everyone else in the hall and it's a friendly place. It's a welcome change from the companies in the Silicon Valley that see people as expendable. Everyone matters at IQMS and it's a place anyone can make their own reputation and career - it's wide open.

    You have the opportunity to make your job what you want as the company is growing so fast.

    Cons

    Bonus structure could be clearer.

    Consider more open attitudes about working from home.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being focused on customers and going after growth! This is a great company and the culture is supported by great, hard-working friendly people.

    I have been working at IQMS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1) Good relation with upper management and you will have opportunities to work with them.
    2) The flexibility that allows you to work remotely if need be and come in later/earlier if required.
    3) Great hands-on learning for out of college graduates as you can get an in-depth look at the company financials.
    4) Most days you are in at 8 am and out at 5 pm. While we are busy near month/quarter end and you will not have any of those 70-80 hour work weeks.

    Cons

    1) Salary is less than you Bay Area/LA firms.
    2) Not much of an international presence will be working out of Paso Robles upon starting.

    Advice to Management

    More of a presence on the support floor if possible.

    I have been working at IQMS full-time

    Pros

    The best job I could have asked for, especially as a new graduate that would not pigeon hole me into a monotonous task with poor compensation. My knowledge and experience base is growing daily and I can whole heartedly say that I am apart of the best team in the whole company. The Finance Team is 100% solid and so is its leadership.

    Cons

    I really don't have any Cons to list.

    Pros

    The people for sure
    We have some of the smartest talent in the country from tech support professional services and training.

    Cons

    - morale is horrible in some departments
    - they don’t invest in their employees anymore. Our CEO has been quoted as saying we enjoy all these perks but really the so called mixers are a joke. Holiday parties are no more than a poorly planned birthday party.
    - my profesional services colleagues complain of a quota so hard to meet that it leads to burnout and basically pushing them out the door. They have already lost so much talent and consultants that used to work for us have now left to start their own consulting firms and actually taking business from IQMS
    - QA/Dev being held to rigorous illogical and often times unattainable deadlines where product quality is compromised and features promised to clients get pushed back to different build or a different version altogether

    Advice to Management

    Get it together! We have an amazing product with amazing people. Saving pennies and trying to cut back in investing in your people will lead to many of us using IQMS as a stepping stone to something better instead of IQMS being our place to grow our careers and call it a home

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

    Pros

    The changes have been amazing and the old guard that held this company down for so long have either moved out or moved over to make way for the expected growth. Growth for a software company at this size/age is very hard but the new management team has come in and shown the ability to do it year over year.

    Cons

    Annual bonus communication sucked but yet all were paid and so the naysayers all had to eat their words of doom and gloom.

    Advice to Management

    It's been nearly 3 years since the founders sold and private equity took over. The changes have been substantial with not all of them being popular. New management team has been forthcoming on the financial and product development expectations at a high level but not all of that filters down to the rank and file employees. Sr management needs to make sure we all get the message on a regular basis :-)

    I worked at IQMS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Culture in which the company was founded on was great
    -Great Benefits, especially for large families
    -Cal Poly graduates can be the cornerstone to IQMS's success

    Cons

    -Have not got rid of the key individuals that hold the company from getting to that Silicon Valley type of success (not adaptable)
    -Upper management is seen as untrustworthy, no openness until after the decision is made

    Advice to Management

    -Look at the successful software companies that have transitioned from Waterfall to Scrum, it's not easy, but you can do it right
    -When having open forums, take action on key issues
