    I have been working at iCIMS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I truthfully don't think I will get enough characters here to describe the pros of working at iCIMS, but here goes. Having worked for companies who drive you into the ground with negativity and been in truly depressing work environments, iCIMS is a complete breath of fresh air. My manager actually truly cares to help me become a better employee and progress within the company, something that I still am shocked about coming from other offices. My mentor is so helpful to me and I feel like I can turn to anyone on my team with questions or advice on how they would handle a situation. The work can be difficult, but it is rewarding and you are pushed in a motivating way rather than a hurtful way.

    Cons

    The literal only con is that space is hard to come by since so many people are flocking to work for such a great company.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE continue what you are doing! Working for iCIMS is truly the best thing I've done thus far in my career as it's the first time that I feel like a person and not a number and felt that my contributions matter. In a company of 500+ and the executives know your names? All I can say is wow and thank you.

    I have been working at iCIMS full-time

    Pros

    iCIMS is a great company that offers incredible benefits and opportunity for growth. They are a SaaS company that is growing and has the potential to be one of the top technology companies in the country.

    Cons

    Management at iCIMS can be better and they could work on growing staff with session planning.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees instead of only thinking about replacing if they don't seem to work to your level. The average employee time to ramp up needs to be 1.5 years.

    Pros

    As a new hire I am providing a review of the interview process at ICIMS. Overall, the interview process went smoothly, and I met some incredible people along the way. I think the key to having a good interview with ICIMS, is to bring your passion for the position, which you are applying for. To also provide as much information, to the interview, that can been seen as a benefit to the company, this highlights your strengths.

    The company atmosphere was extremely positive.

    Cons

    None at this time to report.

    I have been working at iCIMS full-time

    Pros

    - Great benefits (401k, healthcare, PTO)
    - Location (great if you live in NJ)
    - Casual attire

    Cons

    - Zero Career growth. upper management do not have a career plan so why would an associate?
    - Perks are being eliminated. there used to be socials each month...those are gone. There used to be a great training package...that's dwindling. If you like bagels, they offer bagels on Fridays and there's a Coca Cola machine that's filled each week
    - Sales is a frat house
    - Marketing is miserable
    - Overworked and under compensated
    - Takes at least 2 yrs to be promoted from a level 1 to a level 2
    - Leadership does not know what is going on. Very disconnected from C-level to VP to management to associate

    Advice to Management

    Work on ensuring current employees are happy before you go ahead and onboard a boat load of people every two weeks. Promote within. Give your employees something to reach for rather than hitting monthly quotas so managers look good and hitting reset every month

    Pros

    Benefits easily the best thing icims offers, other company could learn from there benefits package.. first option free or extremely affordable buy up package

    Cons

    The amount of cons at this company are too many to name. The CEO has a great company vision and its unfortunate the upper management below him couldn't run a circus. Middle management has ZERO say in anything, they are literally told how to run their department and their employees by upper management, they even have to change employees reviews to go ahead with upper management agendas.

    Completely frat house atmosphere. Over 20 employees have up and walked out or have been pushed out. EXTREMELY UNREALISTIC sales goals.

    There is a reason almost every employee is right out of school, stay for a year or two and move on, awful work/life balance as well

    Missed budget almost every month in 16, not one change in any of the upper management or "sr" leaders. Its ALWAYS the employees fault. All the upper management is from company the ladders and nepotism hires and hand picked yes man hires run rampant at this place. In a company huge on change only thing not changing at this company are the upper management who have run the place into the ground and took one of the best places to work and turned it into the circus.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was great its a shame they would not let him manage his department or employees

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

    Pros

    * I work with amazing and talented people
    * Benefits package is decent
    * Ability to work from home when needed

    Cons

    * Tend to grossly underpay employees
    * Shift in culture
    * Tend to execute without proper planning

    Advice to Management

    Focus on smart process changes and plan how to execute them. Have a vested interest in those you manage because they are more than willing to work harder if they know you care and are trying to do things intelligently, rather than haphazardly. Take risks on great culture fits and enthusiastic people.
