    Pros

    InnerWorkings is an incredible company with a startup feel to it. There is a tremendous amount of growth opportunity within the company. The best part about the items we produce is that they exist in everyday situations. The work balance is totally managable.

    Cons

    Some clients will be more demanding than others. Therefore, every job differs based upon the client.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.

    I have been working at InnerWorkings full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people, the tech, the great physical work environment, no dress code, challenges and opportunities for growth abound. Serious about their work, but not stuffy.

    Cons

    Pays slightly less but it's a worthwhile trade off if you aren't the type that got into it primarily for cash.

    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun, entrepreneurial environment with a lot of smart executives with fast-paced expectations for growth. High degree of competencies with strategic sourcing/supplier network and technology applications (custom developed for large clients).

    Cons

    Grew a lot by acquisitions - so there are several silos throughout global footprint as different markets and management teams learn what others capabilities are - not consistent in every country.

    Advice to Management

    Need to standardize roles/responsibilities across different job descriptions, so that team members are fairly tasked with appropriate work, and have career progression opportunities.

    Pros

    I worked with a lot of great people. I learned a lot about the public company reporting requirements which has been super helpful in my career.

    it would be helpful if the lower level employees had more transparency on where the business is headed and its goals.

    Very energetic place to work. People are supportive and all working toward same goals. Great culture for growth-oriented people.

    Company is a well kept secret. We need to spread the word to keep attracting more talent.

    "Great Company - You Get What You Put In"

    I have been working at InnerWorkings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Continued rapid growth means new opportunities are constantly opening up.

    Most of the Senior and Mid-Level managers that I have worked with over the last 3 years have a genuine interest in looking out for and developing their teams.

    If you have an idea on how to do something better/faster/cheaper, it's generally easy to get the support of management and the empowerment to make it happen.

    Substantial career growth is absolutely possible, but you have to earn it. Promotion is based more on merit than seniority.

    Cons

    Health benefit cost is high relative to comparable companies in the area and industry, especially for families.

    Rapid growth means there are times where some teams are over committed.

    Some teams seem less integrated with the larger company as as a whole. This is more prevalent with sales offices and the offices of companies acquired in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focus on integrating former acquisitions with the rest of the company - culture, systems, processes, etc.

    Better leverage the global reach of the company. Take relationships we have with large customers in one continent and push for global deals. Perhaps consider multi-national tiger teams to make that happen.

    Pros

    None!!! You'd be better off working at Walmart.

    Cons

    Sleazy business practices abound. Be careful if you work here as your professional integrity will be compromised. I'll be surprised if the company lasts another year due to illegal business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more corporate attorneys. You're going to need them!
