    I worked at Information Control Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very positive company that wont push you too hard, but will give you every opportunity to help you build a better self. Good benefits, and many other perks that I've never received before. My co-workers were incredibly diverse, but also extremely competent and a joy to work with.

    Cons

    The fantastic receptionist at the front desk keeps the candy dish well stocked, and I have zero willpower. The dining options around the office are not great.

    These things don't matter at all in the grand scheme of things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I like the direction that the company is going, and the HR policies and the associate advocates make this a very comfortable place to work.

    I worked at Information Control Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for training. Their open-collaborative space is actually well done. The managers do a great job, and leave the engineers to perform their duties without interruption. Compensation is competitive, but yearly raises are 4-5 times higher than anywhere else I've worked or even heard of. The break room always has fresh fruit, and catered lunch meetings are very common.

    Cons

    The only downside (and it's minor) is that you must be local to Columbus, even if their customers aren't.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change anything, you're doing great

    I worked at Information Control Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Having fixed length project work means you can go through 2-3 different assignments/projects and get a lot of exposure to the tech industry which looks great on a resume, and is as good a stepping stone career wise as can be expected. If you get hired in a large recruit 'class' its even better for networking, because you'll be able to network far and wide when everybody leaves.

    Cons

    After 2 years, pay was lower for similar FTE positions. If you're a new grad you don't get a say in your assignment, and some are much better than others.

    I have been working at Information Control Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Free snacks and beverages at the office
    * Send a welcome gift basket
    * Send a cookies for your birthday every year
    * In 2015, introduced a staff member to handle any concerns, career management assistance, etc cross-client rather than having you work with various account managers as you move from account to account
    * Account managers are very engaged, making regular (in my case, weekly) on-site visits
    * They tend to take the long view when dealing with clients, trying to build a long-lasting relationship rather than focusing on how they can make a quick buck now.
    * Hack night every month, with beer, pizza, boardgames, and presentations/labs on technologies of interest.
    * Several SIGs within the company to continue learning (big data, PM, leadership, ToastMasters, certification programs, etc).
    * Annual company holiday party.
    * Annual company trip (Columbus Zoo, CedarPoint, etc)
    * Pays for membership in approved professional organizations
    * Has a tuition reimbursement program
    * Decent insurance
    * Have health related resources like Healthy Weigh Challenge, yoga classes, massages in office, etc
    * Mileage reimbursement for clients more than 25 miles from ICC office.

    Cons

    * 401k matching vested on schedule (<2 years 0%, >=2 years 25%, >=3 years 50%, >=4 years 75%, >=5 years 100%). 5 years is a long time to stay in one place in consulting.
    * Unused PTO paid out on scale (<1 year 0%, >=1 year 20%, >=2 years 40%, >=3 years 60%, >=4 years 80%, >=5 years 100%). 5 years is a long time to stay in one place in consulting.
    * It's a consulting company. While they care about their associates more than many shops in town, moving you off a project you're unhappy with might not happen right away. They're likely to tolerate somewhat pushy client requests in the interests of keeping the client happy.
    * 8 company holidays, but follows holiday schedule of client. This can be pretty awesome if client is a bank, or kinda crumby if the client is retail.

    Advice to Management

    Changes to improve culture and associate success are working, keep growing the engagement. Work a little more on the give and take with clients. It's a partnership, we shouldn't just be a "yes-man". Associate Advocates have too many resources to properly manage, hire more.

    I worked at Information Control Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a company, they worked very well to aid continuing education, especially when it was required by the client. The pay rate was quite fair, and the office staff were quite capable and supportive. Hosted family-oriented events regularly, and made it easy to maintain a positive work-life balance. Can go pretty far in the company if you're willing to put in the effort (and face time in the office.)

    Cons

    My only con had more to do with visibility within the company. Being a long term assignment consultant, it could feel easy to be felt forgotten. Most times, I usually felt like a stranger to the office when I was on site during bench time.

    I worked at Information Control Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are billable and getting moolah to this place, you will be well taken care.

    Cons

    If you are non-billable and not getting them moolah (irrespective of market slowdown or sales team not getting opportunites or whatesoever) you will be terminated without any headsup. One day you'll be full-time and the nexxt day on street

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on. you guys are on right path. Wish you best.
