  1. "Business Analyst"

    Former Employee - Business Analyst in Houston, TX

    I worked at Icon Information Consultants (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was great working with Mia. He was upfront and kept me abreast. He sent me on several interviews before I landed my position.

    Cons

    It is hard to get a new assignment when assignment is completing. It all depends on whether they have new requisitions to fill positions that match your background.

    I worked at Icon Information Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly pay, weekly pay, weekly pay

    Cons

    Craptastic "insurance"
    Rude office people

    Advice to Management

    Wake up - you are providing a service to both the employer and employee. Without employees, you have no one to place for your jobs. Offer better benefits and be kind. You all are RUDE.

    I worked at Icon Information Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly paychecks, the lunch program for internal employees and Christmas Bonus.

    Cons

    This job shouldn't have been difficult at all. I think training for this position wasn't very consistent, my trainer/coworker wasn't patient answering random questions about processes and procedures. Management was so quick to run me over with a bus for issues that were not explained to me thoroughly and also there is favoritism in the company. Everyone in the office knows a little too much about everyone's personal issues. Basically people are hired into the company based on who they know and not on their experience.

    Advice to Management

    Not going to list anything since management won't change anything. Everything is exactly the same for the last 20 years.


  4. "Icon Staff"

    Pros

    You receive a weekly paycheck.

    Cons

    The company I'm consulting for uses Icon for their W2 contractors, so I had no choice but to be hired by them. The on boarding process was extremely slow (just over a month) and the recruiting coordinators rarely return phone calls. I had to inquire about state mandated benefits and was told that Icon HR only found out about them because other employees were complaining. There website was last updated in 2009, so there is no employee portal to access any information and you're dependent on the staff — who has to manually calculate things like hours earned.

    Advice to Management

    Update your website and require hiring recruiters to check in with contractors on a quarterly or monthly basis. After all, you're earning money off of us working for you.

    I have been working at Icon Information Consultants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, on boarding was quick and painless, weekly pay

    Cons

    Difficult to get in touch with, website is extremely outdated and unprofessional, horrible insurance benefits. Also, they were not in compliance with insurance laws and half way through the year tell me that I need to deduct more from my paycheck each week in order to help the company get in compliance (over $600). Very sketchy and unprofessional.


  6. "Project Coordinator"

    I worked at Icon Information Consultants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Insurance is paid at no out of pocket for full-time employees.

    Cons

    I was initially interviewing for a role on the recruiting side and was told I would start as a recruiting coordinator until I got the hang of things since my direct manager works remotely. Pay was less than what I was offered but despite being a payroll/hr company of was never made an offer in writing. People are terminated almost weekly and those who aren't quite just as quickly. Management is extremely unprofessional and employees are often yelled at in front of others. No opportunities to advance as all potential promotions are never posted or offered and are filled by outside hires. Practices are extremely outdated and most personal information is passed to payroll on a handwritten piece of paper (pay rate, social security number, etc. ). Overall environment is stressful, underpaid, dehumanizing, and inflexible. Do not work here unless it is as energy entry level position in which case do your time and get out.

    Advice to Management

    None as they are stuck in their ways and would refuse to acknowledge it anyway.

    Pros

    Paid on time and bonus for hours was a nice benefit

    Cons

    Lack of any real communication from the main office on anything really. Recruiter and office staff difficult to contact and rarely knew what my contract situation was.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your personnel and the status of their contracts and contract employers

    Pros

    Job is not difficult. Basic office functions. Training is easy and the people are friendly. Depending on your area depends on the type of work you will have to.

    Cons

    No growth potential, sometimes the office is very loud and hard to make and answer calls. Sometimes there is not enough to do and there is no challenges.
