    I have been working at Impact Networking full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Many of the projects I work on test my knowledge as well as creativity - Colleagues are always willing to help out and everyone gets along with each other - Managers and anyone "higher up" will always make time if you want to talk, which is awesome that they don't let their titles get in the way of interacting with their employees - Impact really takes care of their employees and is always open to feedback on how to improve - I've only worked out of Chicago offices but the offices are amazing, some of the best views of the city - Hearing about the company's constant growth is motivating because with growth comes opportunity and if you work hard you will be rewarded

    Cons

    very adamant about not working from home

    I have been working at Impact Networking full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've been working as a software developer with Impact Networking for just over 3 years. Every year has been better than the last! Everyone has a great relationship, we often hangout at the office on Friday's and catch up. The projects are engaging and I enjoy the client interaction aspect.

    Cons

    Sometimes dealing with clients on a bad day can be a little stressful, however I've been able to keep in mind that everyone has bad days so just because they may be a little rough on the phone they must be going through something. So overall, nothing I could see as a con.

    Thanks for your review. Impact's baseline PTO is 13 days (not two weeks), and all employees also receive 11 paid holidays in addition to PTO. Our dress code is pretty lenient with the exception of our sales representatives whom we request wear business professional attire. In regard to insurance offerings, we regularly (at least 2x per year) analyze our benefit offerings and monthly have a call with our broker to review where we are at within the industry. If you have additional questions regarding benefits, please do not hesitate to reach out to our HR department at ImpactHumanResources@impactnetworking.com.

    I have been working at Impact Networking full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love the culture here at Impact. Everyone is here to help you achieve your goals. You can go to anyone with your questions/problems - no one is "too important" to talk to you. They are always pushing you to be the best you can be and want you to succeed.

    Cons

    There is definitely a learning curve when starting here, but you have amazing support systems that can help you with anything you have issues with. It may seem like a lot of work, but it all pays off.

    Pros

    If you put the time and hard work into what you do, you WILL get rewarded. Amazing company culture that truly takes care of its employees for working hard. Great work life balance, never really have to take your work home. Provide all the tools you need to succeed in your career path. Company reviews are done with the CEO of the company (never seen this before).

    Cons

    Sometimes the coffee machine doesn't work, other than that, no complaints.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Impact Networking full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Coworkers/managers are always willing to help which makes for a complex synergy around the office. This company employes many out-of-college graduates which they strive to imbue the technical aspect of a typical help desk and the customer service of a sales rep. Overall, an excellent place to learn for recent graduates or those looking to embark on a new career path.

    Cons

    During COVID-19, there were some questionable choices made by HR (prevaricating to employees about cases, downplaying the seriousness of it, etc.). The company as a whole made it clear to us that progress is worth more than the well-being of its employees. High turnover as well.

    Thanks for your review. We wanted to address your comments regarding COVID-19. Due to HIPPA guidelines and protecting the confidentiality of individuals, there is only so much that can be communicated to the employee(s) in regard to a positive case of COVID-19 within the office. HR will continue to be as transparent as legally possible. Our HR department and CEO welcome any direct questions, and if we can legally answer it, we will send the reply to both the individual asking as well as the whole company. Impact's HR team has spent many days researching and educating themselves on appropriate ways to return to work safely, utilizing resources from local and federal health departments. The well being of our employees is of our utmost priority, as it will continue to be, which is why we invested heavily in the necessities to ensure our employees are safe & healthy at work.

    Thanks for your review. Impact has an open-door policy with our leadership team if additional guidance is needed. Our training department is also available should our employees need training or support outside of what is already provided. We wish you the best of luck!
