    I have been working at Integrated Project Management Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing people top to bottom. The work is challenging and meaningful. I can't say enough about the culture here. Such a genuinely caring and ethical company. I feel that IPM is meeting the challenges of growth head on and is evolving in a really smart way. What I have seen in my time here gives me great confidence for the future...they are ready to meet the challenges of a changing industry and are evolving smartly.

    Cons

    The work is not for everybody. A lot is expected and there are times when long hours and travel will be a requirement of the job. IPM does a great job of balancing that, but just know that you are a consultant and there are challenges that are built into carrying that title.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show a willingness to evolve. Continue being transparent. Continue to hire the best...they are a joy to work with.

    Pros

    Starting from the CEO down, the focus is to bring the right folks on the bus, then you can go anywhere.

    Cons

    Long term view provides stability but also risk aversion; company does not change quickly

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing

    I worked at Integrated Project Management Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at IPM is great. There is a family vibe that goes from executive level management to the newest employee. Most everyone is friendly and willing to help others.

    Cons

    IPM operates under the promotion from within philosophy. This wouldn't be a bad thing if they took time to actually train the managers. There is no consistency in how employees are treated and they move from manager to manager, potentially with each project. If there are no set guidelines, the employee has to adapt to what each manager believes is the best way to work. IPM also should realize that just because someone is in a position to be promoted, does not mean they should be promoted to manage people. That requires a specific skill set that not every one has.

    Advice to Management

    Train the managers that directly supervise employees. Create a consistency that will allow employees to know what to expect as they change managers.

    Supervision is indeed sacred turf. The caring that an IPMer would show toward any other colleague must be raised to a new level when supervisory responsibilities are added. Development, feedback ... More

    Pros

    The company culture is the best of any organization I have ever experienced. Management strives to create a close knit organization focused on excellence and providing the best possible environment for employees to succeed.

    Cons

    Client locations are not always convenient to residence. Travel throughout the region may be a part of each project. Management does its best to minimize hardship to PMCs

    Pros

    Professional consultant company with a family oriented environment. The culture is like no other, a truly impressive and supportive place to work. They really work to hire the best, so you will always be surrounded by great people. Environment of continuous improvement. Health care covered by the company.

    Cons

    Commutes to client sites in Chicago can be long. Travel may also be needed occasionally, but managers help to make it fit your work/life balance. Limited advancement due to small size of the company.

    I worked at Integrated Project Management Company full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are generally very friendly and excited to collaborate on various things. The culture is great for a while. Mission and beliefs offer a good foundation for the company.

    Great place as a first time job in the corporate world.

    Cons

    The "culture" becomes a bit stodgy after awhile. Senior management bends over backwards for the consultants as they are the money makers. This leaves the support staff feeling ostracized. Consultants are promoted left and right and have the ability for job growth where as there is no room for promotions for the support staff. There are no options for job growth among support staff.

    Several managers shouldn't be managers, but are simply managers because they have been with the company a long time. These managers are often unprofessional.

    Work/life balance could be greater, with less emphasis on being 100% billable/fully utilized.

    Company boasts about being innovative, but many things don't change "because that's how they've always been done".

    Very little appreciation is given to those that work hard and deserve it.

    Salary is well below what is average for the same job, in the same geographical area, with the same amount of experience.

    Pros

    A great place to work, learn, and grow!!! There are options for travel assignments and working in a broad range of industries.

    Cons

    Not a place for someone who settles for "close enough".

    Advice to Management

    What they say is what they do! The culture promoted by senior leadership inspires collaboration and camaraderie! They truly "walk the talk" when it comes to honesty, caring, respect, responsibility, excellence, spirituality, and humility.

    Pros

    The company walks the talk. They understand the employees are their most valuable asset and treat them like family. They make you feel valued. The culture, team collaboration, and transparency is refreshing.

    Cons

    Nothing the organization can do about this, but It is a smaller organization and opportunities for advancement are limited.
