    Thanks for the review. This review refers to early 2014, maybe sooner. Since then, many changes have been made: adopting the Salesforce.com platform (platinum partner), improving the value ... More


  3. "Used to be good, but then…"

    I worked at icix full-time

    Pros

    For people who are into appearances and looking slick, this might be the place for them. Also the company provided lunches onsite since the fancy new office was so far away from anything.

    Cons

    The board destroyed the good part of working there: the culture. The CEO back then was a great, approachable guy who fostered a caring, comfortable culture. Then they fired him and brought on some corporate slickster guy. Everything turned upside-down. The move to an "open, collaborative" office (read: no privacy nor possibility of concentration), the forced adoption of the micromanagement disease called Agile/Scrum, the flavor-of-the-month technology pushes, the harebrained sales schemes. Everything quickly turned into constant emergency "war room" firefighting, and it was miserable to work there even apart from that.

    Advice to Management

    You never should have fired the guy who made the place what it was to begin with. Way too late now, I suppose.

    Thanks for the review. Reading it, i think it refers to the year 2014. While I cannot comment on what happened then (i was not there), I can certainly understand the frustration. Since January of ... More

    Pros

    After a long stretch of crazy leadership (CEO, CTO) with outrageous spending, no corporate direction, no idea how to deliver technology in the 21st century, along with a decimated culture it seemed that icix was doomed.
    Thank you to all those who contributed to hitting the reset button.

    Culture is now a positive, help each other, customer focused machine.
    The technology that icix is bringing to the market is transforming how businesses collaborate and understand the data within their trading networks.
    I'm confident that this company will have a reputation as "the place to work at" throughout the Bay Area. How often do you get to work at a bleeding edge company, with a fantastic team and culture, that makes people, companies and countries (the world) better???

    Cons

    Too much junk food! Healthy options please, better coffee would be a bonus!

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great focus and execution. Keep the culture and company growing in this direction. Looking forward to setting this place on fire with all my teammates!
