    Pros

    great people, cool technology, was very popular. Had nice offices and a good location. windows showed a lot. always experimenting with new things and technologies.

    Cons

    ended up shutting down, so that's kind of a bummer. But hey, it was great while it lasted. I really like the people and management was great.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to listen to employees and ask their advice and give them consideration in all that they do. Be sure to manage things better in the future so that we don't have to sell to another company.

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

    Pros

    iBahn was purchased via bankruptcy auction by their competitor, so I guess that's something. At least they can pay the bills.

    Cons

    Lack of any management at all. The new management doesn't seem to know what they even want to do with the ibahn office, it feels like a boat that is just sailing with the ocean current. The office itself is a bit of a ghost town, maybe 1/4th of the cubes are actually filled. They actually put security cameras in to watch the employees, which I am not comfortable with. With how little attention or communication comes from the new owners, I feel like there may be layoffs and closure of the SLC office in the future. :(

    Advice to Management

    Actually make some decisions with what you want to do with our company now that you've bought it.

    I have been working at iBAHN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers on US side, decent middle leadership in US.

    Cons

    Disinterested and arrogant US leadership, Malicious and Anti-American leadership in the UK and Asia resulted in bankruptcy and sale of the business

    Advice to Management

    Divide the regions with different levels of customer expectation, monitor junior execs, and watch what happens on their teams. To evaluate management, consult the people they manage... Stop trying to make all your customers fit in the same box... listen to your customers.

    I have been working at iBAHN full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cool technology, great co workers, flexible work schedules, and long term employees were valued at one point. Recent executive management changes, changed all of that.

    Cons

    The former president of the Americas, who drove the company into bankruptcy, had no idea what he was doing. He had no grasp of the company culture, American culture, nor did he have an ability to inspire, motivate or lead by example. Instead a culture of financial insecurity, finger pointing, and general disarray ensued. Unfortunately the company has lost its reputation in the industry among employees, customers, valued partners and long time trusted advisors.

    Advice to Management

    Lets hope the new CEO can restore iBAHN to where it once was before it fell into bankruptcy.

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

    Pros

    Laid back, loose atmosphere. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    No 401k match, no training and/or tuition reimbursement, and no vacation rollover.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees future by matching 401k contributions. Invest in employees knowledge by sending to training or providing tuition reimbursement, this alone would provide value for years to come as employees become more familiar with technology. Invest in employees mental health by not restricting vacation rollover. People need a break and to get away from it all, by not allowing vacation rollover, you are contributing to the decline of productivity and overall well being.

    Pros

    The Rank and FIle employees are Great. This was once a great company that I thought I would never leave. Now I am scrambling to the life boats with everyone else.

    Cons

    6 years ago Marriott, iBAHNS largest client annoucned new brand standards. EVERY customer facing employee was screaming to the executive team that iBAHN MUST start working on comliance. Many members of the E team just blew the warnings off. Now Marriott Employees have been told to not even negociate contracts with iBAHN. iBAHN is currently laying off emplyees with 12+ years of expeirance and Tribal knowlwdge, and even with an entire year of trying to meet the new Marriott STandards (Which are not unreasonable) they have failed and failed again to be certified.

    Advice to Management

    Your a great group of individuals. But you neglect to take the warnings of your employees has been to your detriment. I was in a meeting with one of the Sr Most Founding employees a few years ago were he was begging that we start working on the new complinace (CSN) he was told to stop talking about it, and was even laid off severel months ago.
