    I have been working at IQPC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    IQPC has provided me with the most important and formative experience of my career. I value the structure, support and serious approach to the events business. IQPC NYC is a vibrant and successful office with some very talented and dedicated staff in place.

    Cons

    Structure is an essential requirement for success in this industry - IQPC delivers on this across all departments and I personally see this as a serious pro, but some candidates can regard it as a negative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating

    Pros

    Working for IQPC gives you opportunities you wouldn't have many other places. You have access to Fortune 1000 executives that most people wouldn't dream of working with. You get to travel to major cities across North America a few times a year. Working here teaches you the basics of sales and that can take you a long way in today's world. As someone who ended up needing a unknown amount of time off and accommodations for medical reasons, they were more than supportive and helped me through the process of coming back to work. If you're a hard worker and want to excel and move up within the company, the management team here is more than willing to help and support you.

    Cons

    IQPC Tampa could definitely use a better training system. There are a lot of people who would like to see more continuous training with their position. The job itself is a little monotonous at times but that's inside sales.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the changes and keep innovating!

    I worked at IQPC full-time

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about this organization.

    Cons

    This place is a chop shop. Horrible management team. Extremely high turnover. Inability to produce leads so new sales people are unable to build an effective pipeline. Therefore, sales goals are unattainable, way too high and unreliable with the overly structured sales process. The only way to succeed is through favoritism. Also, One of the managers inappropriately touched me at a holiday party and made me feel very very uncomfortable. Highly unprofessional company. Beware!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better. Seriously.

    I have been working at IQPC (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the pro's of IQPC are flexible hours, ability to network with C-Level executives, and professional development.

    Cons

    The commission structure is abysmal, along with their PTO policy. They took PTO when employee's ddn't come into the office the day before a Category 4 Hurricane hit.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better commission structure where sales doesn't lose their commission if you deny an attendee or if an event is cancelled.

    Pros

    Fact paced environment. Personal development is through the roof. You will meet the most in-demand and influential business minds in North America at the events. The opportunity for advancement is clear and abundant. In a sales role, the compensation is well above average.

    Cons

    If you don't like pressure, this is not the place for you. Internal technology is still lagging and the offices are outdated.

    Advice to Management

    The product is second to none. Continue to innovate and put out great events. Investing in an updated CRM and updating the office will go a long way.

    Pros

    Talented sales people, central to mid-town

    Cons

    High pressure to close sales, a wave of people get fired every quarter if they don't deliver on aggressive sales goals. Constant fear of being let go.

    Poor benefits package

    Advice to Management

    Sales are important but there are other intangibles that go into boosting outcomes. Employees need to feel safe and valued.

    I worked at IQPC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are none. There really are none.

    Cons

    If I could give a zero rating, I would. IQPC is a horrible company with a 'churn and burn' business model; i.e. bring in new batches of employees, mostly new college grads, work them to the point of burnout and then discard them when it's clear that the stress and angst of the job have taken their toll and, of course, before it's time for a pay increase. They have absolutely no regard for the health, well being or genuine professional development of their staff. Managers and executive team are aloof and there is a clear divide between them and those of us who were in the trenches.
