    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ideaca for less than a year

They are way to revenue focused - people and the customer are...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer service, training and retaining the right people. This company seems like it used to be well run - but has since lost its way. A focus on customer service and delivering a good product by proper internal training, developing a proper project team prior to taking on work, and ensuring your team stays with the company will yield better profits than the current model
