    I have been working at Integration Point (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for upward growth within the company. Senior management is made up of many young team members. Most positions are filled through internal promotion rather than external hire. Management is generally very adaptable to employee’s needs. No micro-management. Rapid growth. Company has doubled in size over the last few years. Average raises are well above the industry standard. Excellent opportunities for domestic and international travel.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment can be overwhelming at times. New employees, often fresh out of school, are expected to take on a large amount of responsibility which isn't for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to operate as a small company and don't get caught up in the typical corporate bureaucracy.

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

    Pros

    There are some very smart people here, and there’s a lot of opportunity for growth. You also have some good opportunities if you try to take advantage of them. I had some great coworkers and did learn a lot.

    Cons

    Pretty sure they hire people straight out of college so they can pay them less and mold them into whatever they want to because they don’t know any better. Employees are overworked, and management and leadership have no interest in actually listening to you. People are promoted based on tenure and not actual merit. Constantly chastised with little to no support.

    Advice to Management

    Truly LISTEN to your employees!!! And stop burning people out. There’s so much potential there that is being lost or squandered.

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

    Pros

    Helped give employees entry into understanding software

    Cons

    The culture was extremely toxic. There are leaders who have been removed from working on projects with coworkers due to their anger management. This was my first job out of college and I have since worked in other companies and realized what it is like to be respected and trusted. I was unaware how bad it was and how inappropriate leadership's actions were until I took further harassment training. The employee turnover is high. Additionally, the pay is well below the standard.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to grow and respect your employees

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers, young company, given a lot of responsibilities as a relatively new employee. I didn't have any software experience prior to joining the company (which is normal) but the training program is awesome and gets you up to speed quickly. Managers are approachable and always have your back. Company culture is fun but hard working. Great salary and opportunities for travel.

    Cons

    You are expected to stay as late as it takes to get your work done, so work-life balance can be a bit tricky at first.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows, make sure the company culture doesn't change too much.

    I have been working at Integration Point full-time

    Pros

    There is always something new to learn about the industry and government policies. No clock watchers here and they are flexible with time off and working remotely should it be necessary. Keeping your mouth shut is the best way to be.

    Cons

    The training is actually series of boring 30-90 min videos that no one really ever has time to absorb and apply. Seeking help only comes from coworkers if they feel like it. And once you do receive help from a coworker five different people have five different answers on how you should complete a task. Think you've finally figured it out? Think again, your coworkers will rip it apart and offer no solution other than they don't like it. Sales and Marketing department is plagued with profanity driven sales reps and cliquey mean girls. HR is nothing more than a paper pusher and offer no help to office conflict other than allowing Management to run their department how they see fit no matter how unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking micromanaging is a form of a babysitting. Your employees deserve true leadership and guidance. If you see someone struggling, or their work is lacking, instead of penalizing them or worse firing them take a step back and look at yourself as a manager and say to yourself what is it that I'm not doing that it's not contributing to my employee's success?

    Pros

    The company allows entry level employees without an IT background to learn about the tech industry. Great place to train.

    Cons

    Bad work environment. Upper management is not compassionate to its employees. I've seen multiple people leave the company after less than 1 year of working there.

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

    Pros

    Some of the work can be simple, the employees are nice and management tries to create bonding events. Ping pong table

    Cons

    The biggest Con is that Business majors (CSMs) with no background in SQL or any other computing language are responsible for implementing LARGE clients and catering the software to their specific business processes utilizing XML and writing SQL Queries. This makes absolutely no sense because deficient client-implementations are inevitable which leaves Support (CS & CIS majors) left to clean up the mess that the CSMs created which could have been avoided if CS and CIS majors implemented the clients in the first place. Not to mention that there is a QA department however the REAL QA department is Support (Trade Ops).

    Advice to Management

    Look at the current organization of this company. The software is so insufficiently developed and counter-intuitive that Support intervention is NECESSARY in order for clients to use the software....Having to explain to a client that the "Save" button has to be clicked twice in order for data to be saved should really indicate something hear. In the end, insufficiently written software mixed with poor client implementations is a recipe for disaster causing Support intervention to be necessary to even use the software that is created.........MAIN ADVICE: Hire CS and CIS majors for client implementations so support doesn't always get the short end of the stick.

    Pros

    Small company mentality when dealing with interpersonal issus. CEO is great and personable even if he is a bit intense. between most departments communication is great.

    Cons

    Beginning to outgrow itself. company is growing so fast that some people are not keeping up and communication is suffering. leadership is unwilling to shell out the money for infrastructure that would align with current needs as the company grows.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the company is no longer a 1 room- 10 person operation. this is no longer a small business we need infrastructure to support our growth.

    Pros

    - Job training. It's a serious thing at this company and you need to take notes. It is paid, so they want you to learn.
    - Flexible. Depending on your department, you have vacation etc. Developers are generally more relaxed, but you're always expected to go the mile.
    - Collaborative. The company likes office activities and takes great effort to make everyone feel cared for.
    - Crafty minds. There are some smart developers here.

    Cons

    - Legacy System, but gradually changing through development

    Advice to Management

    Rewards for greater contribution. Would definitely encourage people to see growth potential.
