    I have been working at Innovative-IDM full-time

    Pros

    Some companies talk about culture and others, like this one, live it. I have worked for great leaders and not-so-great leaders and this company has some of the best leadership I have experienced. Innovative-IDM has an overall team that cares not only about the success of the company, but also personally cares about each team member and their family. The President is very passionate and takes great pride in what he and the entire team have built. The company makes large ongoing investments in continued education and is always looking for new opportunities to help people be their best.

    Other benefits include paid time off to help the community, profit sharing, educational reimbursement, numerous company funded meals, ½ days off for winners of competitive team events and a team that is always working to help you be your best.

    To be successful here you need to be honest, hardworking, a team player who likes being coached, unafraid of accountability, and enjoy driving toward aggressive goals.

    One testament to the success of the culture and the company is that the current staff is always recruiting family and friends to come be part of the team.

    Cons

    None that I have found other then it still being a job.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the culture as your grow.

    I worked at Innovative-IDM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart, nice people at this company. The customer base is diverse and interesting.

    Cons

    The owner is a narcissistic egomaniac. Put a microphone and a drink in his hand and he never stops talking. He loves himself and if you don't love him, you will go away. Pay is terrible. They pay way below market value for technical positions. They claim a family environment but only if you are part of the family that owns the company. They use a lot of manipulation to lore young college engineers into their sales force with promises of being a "sales engineer" when in reality if you don't make the numbers, you go away. They are a profit driven company.

    Advice to Management

    Sell now, the LLC format you are in will never grow under your current ownership.

    I have been working at Innovative-IDM full-time

    Pros

    Honestly, this is the best place that I have ever worked. They are constantly growing and treat people right. I have never heard of someone who wasn't treated properly, even employees that left.
    Fast-paced environment
    Extremely competitive
    Caring managers
    Leaders, not bosses
    Competitive Pay
    Fun parties
    Understanding of family
    Understanding of life priorities

    I feel like the employees are my second family, and have found a couple of life coaches to help me get through not only business issues, but personal issues as well.

    Cons

    Small company can lead to some disorganization.
    Very competitive so you can't just skate by.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing! Yall rock!

    I worked at Innovative-IDM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some great people working in the trenches, that's about it. Best part of IIDM are the former employees and a few that remain.

    Cons

    Top leadership feel they are better than everyone, unless you are part of the family there is no loyalty at all period!

    They preach culture, loyalty, dedication each and every day which is a nice idea but it is all a bunch of BS, again no family no loyalty period!

    Tons of pressure to succeed which can be god but it is their way or the highway, no one that is in a real authority position can actually make a decision without getting it blessed. And then when you bring an idea it gets shot down if it is not theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Get off of your pedestal and realize the few great people still there that you have not run off, let them do what they do well instead of manage like a dictator.

    So many great people have been driven away or tossed out, funny thing is they all landed on their feet and are very successful, maybe the real problem is at the top.
