    I worked at Ivie full-time

    Pros

    Exposure to Walmart Marketing Operations and large national marketing initiatives

    Cons

    -administrative
    -no feedback/pov allowed to WM associates
    -note taker/agendas/next steps were my main responsibility
    -did not feel like I was contributing to the company and felt like I was treated like an admin when I was supposed to "own" my projects

    Advice to Management

    I would be very transparent in the upfront on expectations and process with sitting onsite at Walmart. I was told I would be the "owner" of my projects but was never allowed to give any feedback or a point of view in any meeting yet I was required to capture all notes, send out next steps and follow ups. I think a lot of PM's were unhappy and would not have accepted the offer knowing they did not actually own any responsibility beyond timelines and notes.

    I have been working at Ivie full-time

    Pros

    Great learning potential. Work with large companies, touch a lot of different departments

    Cons

    Ivie relatively does not pay competitively at all. They hire great people, but do not value them and do not know how to keep them. Benefits are below average.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people you hire or stay a revolving door.

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

    Pros

    Very nice & promising in the begining. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Arrogant, very fake & heartless management. They don't seem to genuinely care about how each employee is doing. They only seem to care about the production deadlines. They basically abuse the employee with the silent treatment instead of communicating the issue at the moment. They often fed us lunch to make us feel "appreciated". I do not recommend trying to build a career with Ivie. If you do decide to work for them, keep it temporary until you find a real job. The bad energy will make you very unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Try being more genuine & communicate openly to your employees. Address an issue from the begining & help them fix it.
    Make the employees feel genuinely appreciated. Don't work them too hard & then punish them when they can't fulfill your expectations for that week.

    Pros

    Management at the Corp office is nice. Good business concept.

    Cons

    Total lack of training for people in the field. Offsite management is not always good and good employees are lost because of it. Poor pay and long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people - especially your managers. Flexibility would be HUGE.

    I worked at Ivie full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best thing at Ivie for me are my teammates. We are a tight-knit group who work well together and support each other as we all work to support our clients.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, and not a whole lot of room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits are great, but people want to be paid well for their time and effort put in. Work-life balance could use some work too. Most importantly, client service associates are not the client. They are a support team for the client the same as all other teams in the company. Putting them on a pedestal above all other teams does not help overall company morale. If it weren't for all teams working together for our clients, there wouldn't be a company.
