    I have been working at Irving Burton Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at IBA has been a great stepping stone to get me started in my career. I feel very fortunate that I work with a great team and everyone is very approachable. I love the fact that since everyone in the company is approachable we are able to work as one big team. As a team we all have one common goal no matter what department you are working in. There are always opportunity to grow and learn here as well. There is also great work/life balance.

    Cons

    I wish there are more opportunities to attend professional events and/or training (not that I have asked).

    Advice to Management

    I love the fact that Management is very approachable and understanding to employees. Please make sure you maintain that and encourage that feeling throughout the company as a whole.

    I have been working at Irving Burton Associates full-time

    Pros

    Working environment is too bad. If you just do your job it is a very easy day.

    Cons

    You are just a number. No sick leave. No professional development. No dream manager. You are literally just an employee to bill towards the client (gov.) This job is like being a construction worker in many ways, minus the hard-hat and reflective vest of course.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your limits and employees. Sometimes companies push to be big money machines, but forget about their employees and motivations to keep their employees. There isn't anything about this company that is presented, or informative, to keep me motivated about this company. The only good think is the community that I am helping through my gov. client. The rating for this company are very well deserved.

    I worked at Irving Burton Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good locations and telecommuting options and the benefits are OK and people rarely work over the minimum number of hours per week. Mostly good intentions.

    Cons

    Lower than average salaries and no help to learn the organization or what the client expects and no innovative thinking and reactionary firing based on client requests for real or imagined reasons and a solid inner circle.

    Advice to Management

    Have an open conversation with employees from time to time beyond the inner circle if you can build the trust to do it right.

    Pros

    Health Insurance and pay is good

    Cons

    IBA does not support employee growth or engaged in employment satisfaction, not the only former employee who has recognized they will not stand up for or put employee first.
