    I worked at Information Control Company full-time for 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 have been working at Information Control Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are opportunities to grow with ICC but it is very limited. If you are a software engineer then you have to be very lucky to get a good client (with good tech stack). If not, you will not have any career growth. Few people (Associate Advocate, Recruiters, and some engineers) are good and understanding. After a couple of years, PTO is good. Culture is good just because of its employees.

    Cons

    ICC only cares about revenue. They pay you less than 50% of the money that they bill to the client. ICC thinks that its employees are nothing but a money-making machine.

    Advice to Management

    Make your policies better and pay your employees at a industry standard. Also, treat your employees like they are a family. Update your benefits too. Also, clarify on the bench policy while people are hired. Especially the ones who have visa dependency.

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant 

    I have been working at Information Control Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Experience of consulting while being paid a competitive wage.

    Cons

    I have been working at Information Control Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Employee focused and provide many growth opportunties

    Cons

    While compensation is somewhat competative, organization is weak on benefits. Many assignments you find yourself working next to a Full Time employee on a client site who makes the same amount but greatly out paces you with total compensation.

    I worked at Information Control Company for less than a year

    Pros

    ok benefits, life/work balance, on time payment

    Cons

    no stability, unprofessional on their end, extreme lack of communication Don't consider this company if your on H1 and taking full time. They don't have many clients once project you got hired is over they will layoff with in a week as they don't have bench policy and not even a single project in pipe line. They will revoke H1 as part of the process.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest while hiring (don't say you have 15 clients 30 projects), The fact is if 10 resources are coming to bench you guys can hardly place 1 resource.

    I have been working at Information Control Company full-time for 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 for 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.
