    I have been working at IQPC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company has the best people I have ever worked with. The management team really cares from the very top and it shows. The improvements made by leadership in just the past 6 months have been tremendous and it really shows that they listen to their employees.

    Cons

    Culture was a bit tricky in the last couple of years but it has gotten way better.

    I worked at IQPC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros to working at IQPC besides some decent exposure, and a central location (5th Ave/Grand Central area).

    Cons

    For all roles, this company pays at least 80% below the market. The culture is poor, and the office is drab and dirty. There is no warm running water in the bathrooms, so you will need to wash your hands with cold water (this was horrible during the early days of COVID-19). The kitchen is small, and is disgusting. The lounge area is small, and is also disgusting. The office is ultimately a sweatshop for young employees. The interview process is long and unwarranted. They also drug test! They will drug test you, but it is seeming apparent that many of the employees use either cocaine or meth. Lastly, no one there knows what they are doing. The company is one big cluster of confusion and pointless tasks. STAY AWAY from IQPC. Oh, and there's no room for advancement.

    I worked at IQPC full-time

    Pros

    Working with some great people. That's about it..

    Cons

    I worked here for over a year as a marketing manager and it was the most stressful experience of my life. As you read my review of IQPC Exchange, you might think "They're just being dramatic," but trust me, I wouldn't have spent the time to write all of this if it weren't true. Plus, all of the positive reviews you see were written by the recruiters or management teams to persuade people to apply for the entry level sales jobs. - Crappy pay - $35,000 annual salary as a Marketing Manager (85% below the average salary for mktg managers) - HEAVY workload for just one person - one manager is assigned to each event and is responsible for creating and executing the marketing plans (Website creation, SEO, social media marketing, email marketing, analytics & reporting, ALL advertisement & content design, Google Ads campaigns, paid social campaigns, media partnerships, onsite event materials, and more). I should mention that they are managing all of this for 4 to 6 events at one time. oh yeah... and you don't even get to travel to your events most of the time. -Everyone on the marketing team works 50 to 60 hours per week WITHOUT additional pay. They also get paid less than most of the sales reps. - Management does not care about you and does not listen to advice. They don't have any proper leadership training and honestly just got to the top because everyone else quit and they were forced to take on more responsibility. - Nepotism, office drama, and affairs are commonplace. - Very high turnover. The highest I've ever seen/heard of at any organization. - No diversity in the workplace. The sales managers only hire attractive, young girls with the exception of a few token individuals - probably required by corporate to prevent lawsuits. It feels just like a frat/sorority (In a bad way). - The office is super boring and does not have anything on the walls. I would never recommend this company to anyone. Management is corrupt and the office politics are ridiculous. There is a very obvious social structure and if you speak your mind at all, they get rid of you. This company needs a serious change if they want to avoid going bankrupt. Please trust me. Put yourself first and save your time, energy, and sanity - do not sign your life over to this company.

    I have been working at IQPC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    IQPC has revamped their Employee Benefit and PTO policies for 2020 and are incredibly competitive in the workforce. Base pays have increased for all departments and commission structures are very generous. Culture has also changed and more upbeat. Welcome to 2020- it's a great place to work!

    Cons

    This is a sales driven business so there are metrics to meet. Not for the weak of heart. Confidence and ambition needed to succeed. But I believe this is the formula for life in general...
