    Pros

    Despite how established ICS is as a staffing provider, the partners are still open to innovation that will contribute to the growth and success of the organization. Success is measured by both output and effort which removes the fear of testing something new while pursuing goals.

    Cons

    Changing organizational habits can be a challenge and require research for proof of concept.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to who you are.

    Pros

    IF you are NEW to the industry this is a good company to join for a short period of time and learn about industry and allow you to decide if this type of career is a good fit. People who do well here have pride in the company. Good ATS.

    Cons

    If you are an experienced recruiter you will be very disappointed in ICS. There is a lack of clarity in the organization with commissions and profit margins. Salary is extremely low and not competitive. Frat house attitude and the company uses an excuse of "work hard-play hard" to justify behavior. Drinking/drug use on company trips, happy hour on friday to end the week on a "good note" and help you forget how bad the week really is. They are one of many vendors to clients, company does not operate with ethical reasoning in situations when it comes down to the RIGHT choice vs profitable choice. Employees are not empowered to make decisions. They do a lot of things the way in recruiting but the reasoning behind the actions are not ethical, looking to take advantage of candidates instead of truly work with them.

    Ex. for referrals management would prefer for recruiters to give gift cards instead of writing a check so they can avoid taxes and paperwork.

    This company is a rumor mill, prepare to be judged by peers and management. Management and recruiters are friends so if something goes wrong blame will be moved to someone else. Sales believes they are more important than recruiters so do not expect equal treatment.

    They have a makeshift HR department and should you report something be ready for the company to retaliate...because HR is friends with management...

    As someone with several years of experience in the industry I will say there are numerous better options in the Minneapolis area for someone in recruiting.

    If you join ICS you will probably have fun, you will enjoy many of the folks you work with, but you will not have job security, you will be stressed even if you are at 200% of goal, you will not be respected and you will be forced to chose one of two paths; will you take an ethical path or Infinity Consulting Solutions path?

    Advice to Management

    Create a real HR dept, grow up and stop telling sexual stories to your employees, be humble, report finances accurately, remember consultants and internal employees are actually people.....

    Pros

    I've been here for 3 and a half years and its been really fun and interesting. Management is very flexible and understanding with needing time off for family etc.

    Cons

    Intense work environment, super deadline oriented for back office people, but they make up for it

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to create a quieter space for back office, sometimes its a little loud

    Pros

    Everyone here is young and hungry. Hours might be long but this is the industry and the people are friendly and helpful. A lot of knowledgeable people at the top to gain advice from.

    Cons

    If you are very closed off this is not the place to work. It is an open floor and constant communication with others.

    They have some good clients but much fewer than other agencies

    Pros

    Great work environment, the partners are very present, approachable, and eager to help and coach. Very positive office culture - people seem excited to be at work most days. The ability to move up is relative to your work ethic. Work hard, get rewarded for it, make more money. A novel concept.

    Cons

    The base salary is low - 35k, so until you break off your draw of $50k in earnings, it can be tough. But the earning potential after you get off the draw is limitless. People typically are off of their draws within a year.

    Pros

    The people are fun, they do yearly trips and over embrace happy hours

    Cons

    There are many cons, you make 35K your first year if you want no commission otherwise you can take 20K and commission 6 months in. You drop to 30K after 12 months. Work days are 8-6PM minimally, more like 7:30-7 realistically. You can’t expect flexibility if you need to go to the doctor or your kids event unless it’s after work. They make you write the president of the company 90 days in advance if you want to request a day off. You have off 8 holidays a year but they WILL expect you to work them unless it is a major holiday like Christmas. Consultants are looked at like dollar signs-paperwork is skipped to reduce federal/state taxes and other stuff that is not so good. People work their butts off and are not rewarded with anything but more work. The recruiters are fun but the language and behavior is crude. I would not recommend working for ICS.

    Advice to Management

    Happy hours do not make everything all better; you need to figure out how to be flexible and rewarding to employees who succeed at ICS. In addition, the place needs to be more professional and less like a zoo.
