    I worked at Impaq International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working for Impaq International while I was there. It was an open welcoming environment. I felt that Impaq really cared about their employees. There was a good work life balance here.

    Cons

    Most of my issues here came from IMPAQ's Clients, not IMPAQ itself. The only reason I left the company was my desire live closer to family and the possibility of working remotely was not available.

    Pros

    Company that gives you room to grow and really carve out a niche for yourself based on your interests.

    Cons

    A lot of virtual communication, so it can be difficult to gauge the satisfaction of your work among your supervisors and project directors.

    I have been working at Impaq International full-time

    Pros

    Lots of smart people, sometimes interesting work.

    Cons

    I used to admire the atmosphere and values of IMPAQ, but over the last year or so I've noticed that office politics have been getting nasty, especially as funding has become unsteady in some content areas--top managers can be distant/absent, rude, and unsupportive/anti-helpful; people are throwing others under the bus and talking behind others' backs. It's feeling pretty toxic. Yuck.

    Advice to Management

    The competition is outside the company, not inside it. Support people in their success instead of hindering them. Don't reward middle-school behavior.

    I worked at Impaq International full-time

    Pros

    I worked at IMPAQ as a contract phone interviewer, that was a full time job but just last 3-4 months. Most people there were part-time, and I think there was a nice place to do part-time since the fixable working hours. People were so nice, and some supervisors are nice too.

    Cons

    The payment was not very competitive.

    Pros

    Collegiate atmosphere; flat organization within some of the Divisions

    I have been working at Impaq International full-time

    Pros

    I have been working at IMPAQ for 14 months and have been very happy here. The project-based work is flexible to suit your professional development goals. If you want to develop particular skills there is a high chance that you can become involved in an applicable project. Self-advocacy is effective and can influence work based on your interests and goals, including both research-content and managerial skills. There is a higher level of transparency between upper and lower management, which I greatly appreciate. The work-life balance is good; if you need to work remotely for an appointment or sick child you will not receive any push-back. the culture is respectful, kind, and entrepreneurial.

    Cons

    I work in a satellite office; sometimes there are delays in decisions getting disseminated to our location.

    I have been working at Impaq International full-time

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere with room to grow. Firm encourages development and training. Wide assortment of projects to work on if desired.

    Cons

    Must be able to work independently, self-promote. Staff so involved in own projects and with own clients that internal communication is limited.

    Pros

    Good culture getting even better. New CEO has been a lift. Young and connecting well with staff at all levels. Engaging, empowering and driven. Company just scored the largest win ever and this will only strengthen the staff morale.

    Company just restructured and my area has been combined with others, so hoping this will bring new opportunities for all.

    Cons

    With growth brings some uncertainty. Leadership appears stronger than ever, but you just have to hope that the culture can continue as we open up more locations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Encouraging to see new faces in leadership, diversification beyond government and an engaged CEO that can connect with staff on a personal level.
