    I have been working at IST Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    IST has been a great career decision for me. I was hired as a Catering Specialist before Covid-19. When the client decided to remove the position due to the coronavirus, IST worked hard to keep me employed and transferred me to a new position within the company. The Site Manager and Operations Manager have been able to recognize and encourage my drive for success and passion for innovation and creativity. They truly wish to see me succeed. Opportunities for advancement abound for those with the skills and desire to pursue them. IST provides tools and training to improve and hone the skills needed to be a great manager and leader. HR is responsive, knowledgeable, and eager to help.

    Cons

    The benefits are pricey for the salary which is slightly below average.

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

    Pros

    The work environment is very positive. I have the ability to manage without my boss micro managing me. I have great employees working for me and our client is very easy to get along with. You have the ability to run your site how you see fit and make changes for the better of your staff.

    Cons

    The only con for me would be the benefits plan. The PTO is great but the health coverage needs some improvement.

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

    Pros

    Empowered by senior management to make decisions and effect change at client sites which provide added benefits to both clients and employees. I am very pleased at the direction my career has taken since I have joined IST Management.

    Cons

    Remote work environment due to locations of accounts. Wish I had more opportunity for face to face interaction with other Ops team members. Not really a con, more of a wish list item.

    I have been working at IST Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you have drive and a zeal for client service, IST is a great environment to work in. The company philosophy is to be a leader within your sphere and lead with a servant heart. This is a great way to work and lead - a true win-win!

    Cons

    All work requires compromise, sometimes you have to lean in with a point of view not your own. While hard at times, this CON can actually turn into a PRO by helping you become a better person & leader. Costs of benefits continues to rise, this is a challenge for all to positively address.
