    I have been working at Information Services Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Highly recognized in the Industry. Forward Thinking. Award winning. Strong presence in emerging technology, i.e. RPA, AI and cognitive. Virtual model allowing employees to work from home offices when not traveling. Aggressive growth.

    Cons

    Although the virtual model is great, you must have strong leadership and the right team in place to ensure success.

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grow and gain recognition, be mindful that our competitors are watching and eager to recruit our top talent. Consider being more progressive in employee retention programs.

    I worked at Information Services Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are amazing to work with, The projects are fun and challenging, base pay is competitive

    Cons

    They don't pay bonuses, even when achieving or exceeding incentive objectives. C-Suite does pay themselves bonuses. Depending on preference, travel can be excessive (Though not more than other consulting firms)

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees with bonuses as you do yourselves

    I worked at Information Services Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, telecommuting available, office paid lunches and snacks

    Cons

    They don't believe in pay increases or decent bonuses unless you are in sales. Very unorganized especially with new acquisitions blending to the original company. Laid myself and many long time employees off to hire new at lower wages.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth earned with all your employees not just the ones who can add to the bottom line. Give real pay increases not this 1% crap. When you acquire new companies have them transition to one system rather than continue in theirs and manually combine multiple data.

    I have been working at Information Services Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good starting salary. Good benefits.

    Cons

    No raises or bonus, as promised when hired. Management does not communicate well within team. Example, when new contracts are signed, when there are changes within current client environment.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to your employees so that we are not blindsided in meetings. Company needs to share the wealth with employees, provide opportunities, bonuses

    Pros

    Co-workers are very knowledgeable and willing to help answer all questions.
    The potential for growth is arguably the best part of ISG. Senior management and leadership expect you to expand your knowledge/certifications. Additionally, every engagement is a great opportunity to learn/expand your knowledge.

    Cons

    maintaining a work/life balance is hard considering there is an expectation for perfection.

    Pros

    Decent compensation
    Great benefits.
    Interesting and rewarding work

    Cons

    Becoming just another typical consulting company and losing it's identity
    Since going public, the need to grow the business and increase revenue has become more important that making sure they deliver a quality product.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assume you can replace experienced IT consultants with young talent who have little to no practical experience and achieve the same results.
