    I worked at Ivie full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coordinators and lower management are really great people

    Ownership, when around (which seems rarer and rarer), seems to genuinely care about associates

    The culture team will give you free snacks

    Cons

    Ivie seems to keep making the same mistakes over and over again with no consequences for the senior management - there is no apparent longterm plan or if there is, it hasn't been communicated to associates

    Ownership and company Presidents never seem to be around

    Pay is below market value across the board

    Layoffs have been ongoing throughout 2017 - mostly to people that had tenure or were making higher salaries

    Company keeps expanding through acquisitions and opening new offices with no real plan on how to integrate or make things work.

    VPs will make promises to clients without any idea if they're actually achievable, and when they're not, they'll drop the hammer on the associates who tried their best

    Advice to Management

    Take a long, hard look at your executive team. There are too many VPs, and they're all angling to see who can be in control. Too many of them are in it only for themselves and their bonuses, and they're lying and taking credit from other teams and employees just to make themselves look better.

    Associates meanwhile are all looking around wondering who's going to be the next to get axed. The lack of communication about what's been going on is alarming

    I have been working at Ivie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some genuinely great people working here. You will make friends.
    Management is rather flexible and caring for the most part.
    Familial atmosphere

    Cons

    Relatives/friends are given precedence, even to the point of not firing them after multiple HR complaints.
    The culture has taken a dive downhill recently.
    Senior management lives in a world of their own, they aren't very accessible or in tune with their employees
    Pay is low, raises are few and far between
    Very little room for upper mobility
    Client facing employees are always given the benefit of the doubt, and are not punished for causing issues
    Staff is lean, and it's hard to convince management to hire more employees when you are swamped

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they tell you something is wrong. Stop preferring people related to execs.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and laid back

    Cons

    Top-heavy, very political, no opportunity for advancement, unless you are related to the exec's. Pay is extremely low unless you have a life line to executives or are related.

    Advice to Management

    Quit playing favorites with related employees.

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Great co-workers
    Referral bonus program (Heavily taxed)

    Cons

    Not trustworthy
    Phony culture
    Understaffed departments
    Little room for growth

    Advice to Management

    Being proactive, versus reactive, will greatly improve your bottom line. Managers at branch locations need to be evaluated by their employees quarterly - feel free to use emoticons as a metric.

    I worked at Ivie full-time

    Pros

    Not sharing a building with other tenants allows for more freedom to provide functions. The culture tries to provide a welcoming and fresh atmosphere

    Cons

    The salary is pretty terrible and there's very little room for growth. Working for a family that employ's themselves might sound charming, but in actuality the nepotism and allocation of resources quickly becomes somewhat soured.

    Advice to Management

    focus less on funding a music career, and building up employee morale. Hire well, and pay decently and retention is bound to increase.

    Pros

    Good way to get your foot in the door and gained industry experience
    Good networking opportunities with clients for onsite teams

    Cons

    Low pay
    Significant amount of unpaid overtime
    Management doesn't seem to actually hear out what employees say
    Willing to do ANTHING the client wants no matter how unrealistic.... Values clients over employees
    "Culture" seems great but fades away after being there a few months

    Advice to Management

    Start fixing problems your employees bring to you, compensating fairly, and hiring people fit to do their jobs instead of just young, attractive women.

    Pros

    It got me experience in Walmart Home Office

    Cons

    This company is such a joke that when people in my area see it on my resume, it hurts instead of helps.

    Advice to Management

    Quit running your business like you're a teacher assigned to the after school detention class. The people working for you are professionals who legitimately want to do a good job. Stop treating your employees like sheep.
