    I have been working at Inprov full-time

    Pros

    They empower employees to grow, although it may not be communicated very well. I work with some very talented individuals in a relational atmosphere. Good benefits like matching witholdings, health and dental, vacation, PTO, yearly bonus. The owners of the company are very personable and passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    The workload can be daunting. I'm also very separated from project stakeholders, which some people may like. Sometimes the upper management has trouble communicating to the rest of the company, which makes them seem secretive. Middle management is overworked. There are times when we're expected to do what we're told without asking why.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees know they are empowered to grow. Free up money to send staff to conferences with the caveat that they report back to the department as well as actively recruit. Ensure there is margin for middle management to lead instead of having to take on a full load themselves. Communicate regularly, even over-communicate. Not enough communication leads to gossip.


  2. "The company has changed alot"

    I have been working at Inprov full-time

    Pros

    There are free drinks and snacks in the kitchen.

    Cons

    The company has changed alot over the past year. It used to be that nobody here had a title but now we have VP's. Alot of the people who worked here for years suddenly quit and there has been turnover. We don't do fun things for morale as much as we used to do. When you first start working here everybody is nice to you but, once you get yelled at the first time you start to watch your back. We don't trust each other any more. And, the company isn't managed well so we don't know what we are doing half the time.

    Advice to Management

    You should treat your employees better than you treat your clients or you will lose them. If all your good people leave you'll lose business because, the work you do won't be as good.

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

    Pros

    Inprov is a small, family-owned company with a great work environment and added job security.

    Cons

    There is little to no room for advancement and the process of off boarding employees could stand some improvement.


  4. "A good "stepping stone""

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

    Pros

    People are awesome, lots of talent, laid back/casual atmosphere. Ideal for someone just starting out or trying to gain experience.

    Cons

    Pay is below average and reviews are inconsistent throughout the company - some departments are looked over when it comes to increases. Unless you are the receptionist, there is very little chance for growth and promotion. Management chooses not to designate specific job titles to employees, which prevents promotion/advancing roles.

    Advice to Management

    If you are interested in keeping long-term employees, please consider restructuring salaries and vacation policy (again) to be more competitive and also create a role structure that allows for growth.

    I have been working at Inprov full-time

    Pros

    Friendly and laid-back work environment, amazing snack pantry, opportunities for growth and "moving up"

    Cons

    Slow to change, lack of clarity/communication to the staff when there is a change, and no clear boundaries/roles.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to define people's roles. It will prevent a lot of manipulation and frustration amongst the employees.
