    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

    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.

    They limit how much I can work.

    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 Internal technology is still lagging and the offices are outdated.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.

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

    Pros

    You can learn a lot about sales in a short time at IQPC from the managers as well as your co-workers. During my one year at IQPC I had training almost every week with other managers and they provided me many helpful training, guidance and advice.
    IQPC is a good springboard for people to go into sales. They help you build a “salesman mindset”. In fact, everything in life seems to be about sales, not only doing business. The skills you learn from here can help you tackle many issues in life more effectively and achieve more in every aspects of your life.
    IQPC also take initiatives in taking care of its employees. They have happy hours, summer and winter parties. They organize for you to go watch some game together. You can also find people who have the same interest and hobby like you and friendship sometimes last beyond the time people work here.
    Managers are generally very supportive and will give you more chance to climb higher in the organization if you work hard and stay long enough.
    The hour is not bad at all, basically 8 hours a day. It's possible to have a work-life balance when you work here

    Cons

    Maybe higher salary and more benefits

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Provide training and instructions to new employees and provide them regularly like you have done. Stay positive to keep everyone motivated.

    I worked at IQPC full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 have been working at IQPC full-time

    Pros

    - learning about a lot of different industries
    - have the opportunity to speak with high level execs
    - form a sense of camaraderie with coworkers
    - so long as you show effort, managers will help you succeed
    - commission seems to be pretty great if you can close deals
    - room for growth within the company

    Cons

    - freezing in the office
    - some people ring the gong too loudly
    - still on windows 7
    - crm is severely outdated...
    - base salary is a bit low
    - double monitors would improve productivity

    Advice to Management

    - turn the temp up a smidge
    - Windows 10?
    - please update the crm. Please.
    - double monitors would seriously be a huge help

  8. "Horrible Company with Zero Growth Potential for New Hires"

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Close your doors

    Pros

    Have established incredible relationships and bonds with co-workers across all departments.

    Given opportunities that I wouldn’t have received at this point in my career at a Fortune 500 company.

    Learn about all different industries and macro pressures moving the global economy.

    As the offices revenue has grown the investment in the office space, company activities and employee earning opportunities.

    Cons

    Once you reach a certain point in your career your transferable skill development hits a ceiling as 99% of training is in-house.

    Inter office politics and rivalries stunt growth of the overall business as times.

    Advice to Management

    Make opportunities for advancement in the office for all levels of employees known so they don’t feel like they have hit a ceiling and need to look elsewhere for further growth.

    Look outside of our office for additional training opportunities like we have done recently with sending employees to conferences or bringing in outside consultants.

    Send your employees to the events they sell on.

    Pros

    Great people, products, and process. Would highly recommend for people looking to get into sales/marketing. A ton of opportunity for upward movement.

    Cons

    A true "get out what you put in" model. For middle of the road performers, hard to be successful here.
    Sometimes too focused on the numbers and metrics and not overall performance and value. Can't always assign a dollar amount to qualitative traits.

    Advice to Management

    Continue pushing management to prioritize their people and building an environment that's conducive to employees feeling valued. I've seen this improve dramatically in my two years here, so keep pushing in that direction!
