- room to grow (if you know who to talk to) - because IMPAQ is out to make every dollar there is, they will put junior staff on tasks they are completely unqualified for, but, it's a great opportunity to learn - amazing co-workers. people are smart and hardworking. - research with a social impact mission
- family run company results in amateurs/family friends in management. - I was not paid the same as my male counterparts. - like i mentioned, out to get every dollar in gov't contracting so it results in unethical choices (including staffing junior personnel, low quality research, strategic charging of time) - you will be staffed on at least 5 project at a time and 2 proposals during the summertime. Because IMPAQ works on billable hours (this is its own can of worms omg), you will work incredible hours of over time. - personal development will happen during your own time, always off the clock - innovation is not encouraged (unless it's to overbill hours to a client!)11Impaq International Response5y
Thank you for your review. We strive to make a positive impact in the world, and treat our staff with respect, fairness, and to provide opportunities for professional and personal growth. We are very proud of our nice, smart, and hardworking diverse staff. 68% of our team hold advanced degrees, and we have 43% women in leadership. Many staff started here in entry-level positions and have developed (in terms of research skills, business development experience, etc.) and been promoted accordingly to more advanced positions/responsibilities. Others have learned and contributed and then moved on to seek advanced degrees and/or experience new exciting opportunities. We aim to be a Company that encourages growth, entrepreneurship and innovation; we try to say “yes” whenever we can and support staff to take chances, challenge themselves and the status quo, and make their mark. While we have grown a lot in our almost 18 years, we still consider ourselves flexible and agile. We are always interested in ways to improve, new ideas, and growth opportunities (for the business as a whole, as well as the individual).

Professional atmosphere with room to grow. Firm encourages development and training. Wide assortment of projects to work on if desired.
Must be able to work independently, self-promote. Staff so involved in own projects and with own clients that internal communication is limited.

- 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)
- 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.1
