    Pros

    I truly enjoyed working here. I think it was a great work environment with intelligent employees that were very work driven but also knew how to make work an enjoyable place. The work balance was well divided among team members.

    Cons

    I can't say many negative things at all about this company. I guess there can be more formal training when you first start but it was easy to learn and the team leads and seasoned analysts were very helpful in walking you through the process.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any negative advice to say about management. It was a very well managed with intelligence people leading the way. I think they use the chain of command properly but anyone is always willing to lend a hand, regardless of their position.

    I worked at Integral Consulting Services (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers make the place acceptable.

    Cons

    Management is condescending and does not listen to employee recommendations, causing high turnover and poor employee morale. Promises made to employees are not carried through.Too much work for some people, while others are not helping out at all, causing a drain on the others. Poor management style and concern for others.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to advice of employees during meetings and work together. Reward hard workers, and read the "cons" above.

    "Hubris is not a Character of Great Companies"

    I worked at Integral Consulting Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many of projects that the company is involved with contributes to the security of our country and troops. Also, the company does try to show its' appreciation via awards, celebrations, and end of year holiday party. The benefits offered are competitive for the industry.

    Cons

    Leadership continues to demonstrate traits that creates an atmosphere where employees second guess themselves, fear being proactive, micromanage, favoritism, and toleration of dictatorial managers (NGIC), difficulty dealing with confrontation, and hubris. The strategy of some of the hardworking, intelligent employees at Integral is to keep your head low and fly even lower to keep off the radar. This is not the way to become a Great Company.

    Advice to Management

    You can blame the last few reviews on disgruntled employees if you want - that probably will be your natural tendency. However, if you can open up to the possibility of some honesty in these statements then I think you can make the necessary adjustments to put the company on a path to bigger and better things for all parties - employees, customers, and leadership. I sincerely wish you well in the future.

    I worked at Integral Consulting Services full-time

    Pros

    Fair benefits like paid vacation, health insurance and retirement plans

    Cons

    Integral is advertised as a woman owned Minority Company to win contracts. The wife (woman owned) actually
    doesn’t have a roll or any power in the company. The husband runs the show. Under his leadership the company is
    unethical, wages are low, discrimination is rampant in the office and there is a lack of management.

    Advice to Management

    Integrity: You are known for your consistent principles.
    Honesty: You tell the truth and be upfront about where things stand
    Respect for Others. Treat everyone fairly regardless of their title and background

    I have been working at Integral Consulting Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees work very hard at this company. Senior Management wants to keep good employees and tries to make sure that they are doing the right things to make this happen.

    Cons

    Some growing pains as the company increases its' number of employees, but management is aware and making plans for this growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and make good, thoughtful decisions when making and communicating changes in the future - these can be good and not so good changes. Communication and teamwork are key!

    I worked at Integral Consulting Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have good number of clients in the baltimore area.

    Cons

    I worked for Integral for a year and I have to say that by the end of it, I was looking forward to move out of the organization as soon as I could.
    Some of the issues faced by me were-
    1. Layering of employers done without informing the candidate. I had no idea that I was being given out to another employer and then to the final client until after I joined the job. So there are multiple companies taking a cut on what you earn without you having any idea about it!
    2. Contractual restrictions are added in the massive amount of documents that you are made to sign and so one ends up being bound to work for them for as long as you want to work with that client! You can never really convert to your client without being threatened to be sued (and probably even being sued if you insist on converting).
    3. Legal and visa related support is so bad; it might take weeks to get any response back, if at all. Also, you cannot be certain that the legal guidance provided is accurate or not. One is better off hiring his own lawyer for visa related issues than rely on them.
    4. Better not expect much of a salary hike once you are in.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good if they stopped living by the contract and deal with situations as is needed. After all, employees are human and situations demand that support and flexibility be provided as per each scenario.

    I have been working at Integral Consulting Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All employees work very hard and want to do a great job. Majority of employees are engaged and appear to have a genuine interest and passion for their jobs.

    Cons

    Growing pains of a small, growing employer. At times going fast and furious while at the same time building infrastructure along the way. This can be frustraing for some, but also fun and exciting for others like me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Management is respectful and trying to put into to place an environment where people can do their best work and have some fun along the way.
