    Great people. The company truly was a family environment. Hard to find a place this unique.

    Don't just think you do, but actually talk and listen to all of the employees, not just your friends, and not just fellow managers.

    Pros

    ICC is a family. Most of the staff has been here a long time. The Management Team has done a good job trying to manage the change that came with acquisition. The dedication and commitment of the CEO should be recognized. Let's be honest, he could leave and find something better but he stays and continues to fight for his team!

    Cons

    Change is one thing and ICC has managed it well over the years. Having to manage to lies from people at the parent company level is another. ICCs CEO is a good man who continues to fight for his staff through the most difficult of changes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change who you are as a person - at the core. You will have no regrets!!

    Pros

    Some good people still work here, who've poured their heart and soul into the place

    Cons

    Poorly managed, management is very cliquey, impossible to make a positive change, management doesn't support the staff. Ever since being bought out, people have lost their jobs with little warning. Some people just weren't at work the next day. The CEO lied to the employees for months about the future of the company. Management got the best cut of the deal, while the lower tier guys got the shaft despite keeping this place running. No incentive or ability to move up the ladder. Steer clear.

    Advice to Management

    Think long and hard about your priorities, try caring about your employees.
