    I worked at Idea Integration full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Idea has a sister company called Modis. The two company's have many synergies that made working at Idea great. Modis provided many consulting opportunities within their large client base.

    Cons

    Many leadership changes occurred in the 2011-2012 that caused many changes during that period of time. The most significant change was when Idea was sold which caused additional uncertainty with the company and the overall strategy.

    I worked at Idea Integration full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people and a great place to work. Good benefits, management was enthusiastic and well informed. Goals were well defined and attainable.

    Cons

    Merger with another company brought turmoil and changes in management that ultimately led to a significant drop off in sales and then cuts in staffing. Seemed to be floundering in what the company direction should be and articulating it to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of listening to the staff may have contributed to the struggles.

    Not the same after the merger, lost some good people

    Pros

    It a paycheck
    Home office
    You can be lazy and do nothing if you want
    You can hide if you want

    Cons

    HR - no help
    29 execs let go by old CEO
    try to get paid on expenses - ugh
    customers leaving left and right
    SE help - not there
    headhunters / search firms - ask them
    ask an idea person what they think

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the old boys club set up by old CEO
    get rid of old reps that have not sold a thing
    cut out the turnover of new hires
    grow up so you don't continue to lose customers
    drinking is more important than business

  11. "fun culture"

    Star Star Star Star Star

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

    Pros

    There was a lot of creative and technical talent in the office while in my short stay there. A solid client list and more importantly, a casual and fun culture.

    There seemed to be diverse set of projects ongoing that spanned the digital spectrum especially around digital marketing. I felt like there was a lot of opportunity to take on different roles and a general openness to new tools and technology.

    Cons

    Timelines and deadlines were sometimes unrealistic. Career development was murky. Work life balance should be more than just "coach-speak".

    Metrics for management should be re-evaluated to align with a strategy of quality vs quantity.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage the culture and focus more on quality over the number of billable hours. Look for better projects with higher margins and longer engagements with current client list.
