    I have been working at Information Management Consultants full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is a pretty good company with decent senior management, a reasonable organizational framework to allow you to be successful, very good flexibility to allow you to get your job done with reasonable expectations, and barely adequate infrastructure and capabilities.

    Cons

    Lacks strategic direction, is a bit "all-over-the-map" in the pursuit of new business, does not properly support the teams with a minimum proper IT investments (teams are left to fend for themselves to "figure it out"), does not have a comprehensive organizational delivery process / style and each team does things their "own way" which reduces the efficiency of the organization when new teams are stood up or team members move from one team to another . . .

    Advice to Management

    Read "Good to Great" and focus on select core areas, properly support those core areas, properly train and support the teams, and look at the portfolio from a long-view perspective.

    Great flexibility, work your own hours, independent. Great place to balance work and personal life.

    Flexibility comes at the cost of recognition, annual benefits.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, vacation benefits better than average, breakfast once a month, attempt to find you work if your project has ended

    Cons

    Employer discretion 401k match (no match), limited tuition reimbursement, limited training, blatant display of employee favoritism, some employees are allowed to work from home and not others

    Advice to Management

    Invest in business development and to the employee's 401k plan, make an effort not to isolate leadership from the employees

    Pros

    Relaxed, friendly and professional work environment for the most part. IMC gives decent salaries and packages with respect to the market.

    Cons

    Unclear vision to where the company is going and how teams should be structured. Poor senior program and project management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more creative, flexible and adoptive to technology and market trends. Get your hands on and replace/hire a new management layer that is really capable of taking on their responsibilities.

    Pros

    Great people. Flexible hours. Fun work environment. Long history. Lot of wisdom in these walls.

    Cons

    Highly locked into niche markets and contracts. Investment in people and infrastructure is minimal at best. Skeleton crew IT dept with hardly any company-wide tools and technical resources. Extremely conservative financially.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and infrastructure

    I have been working at Information Management Consultants full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule; great teams who work hard and also know how to take time out for fun; if a contract ends, employees will be placed on other teams

    Cons

    If you want to go to a conference or take a class and want them to pay for it, they will make you sign a form that you will pay back any money spent if you leave within a year (prorated if you leave before 2 years). They fail to see immediate payback to the company if you acquire new skills and knowledge! Basically, you become stagnant unless you have the resources to pay for yourself. Issues are brought up once, during your yearly review, and it can be a surprise as you had no idea there was an issue with your performance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees - their professional growth is a growth for the company
    Communicate any performance concerns immediately, not during yearly evaluations
    Reward hard work accordingly, with increase in salary or other perks
