    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Impaq International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Lots of room to grow your skills as a consultant - Good work/life balance (as long as you know how to draw boundaries) - Leadership cares about the well-being of their employees - Some of the smartest/most diligent people you'll ever work with - WFH flexibility (dependent on project)

    Cons

    - Researchers are expected to contribute to business development at all levels (can be challenging to juggle project work on top of it) - There's little investment in professional development unless it relates directly to corporate initiatives or if you find a project to sponsor the hours. The company is making an attempt to change this, but it can still feel like an uphill battle to get things approved outside of professional certificates and continuing education.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Impaq International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I can not think of one outside of the regular staff!

    Cons

    Toxic Culture and Management. Politics run the organization inside out. The regular staff are kept in the dark while management is very non-transparent on all the major decisions (such as selling company behind closed doors). All decisions seem to be based off internal politics\conflicts among the management team. Everything seem to be just a show so the higher ups can stuff their deep pockets. Super limited room for growth! Terrible benefits and health insurance will cost you an arm and a leg!
