    I have been working at ifb full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ifb has an awesome work environment with a lot of good people. As a smaller consulting firm ifb is not regulated as bigger companies so there is a lot of freedom. The flat hierarchies allow to be open and the management allows people to be themselves as long as obviously people are respectful to others.

    Cons

    The salary negotiations are tough. Raises in my case were around 5%-6% per year. The discussions are tedious at times also as at the end of the year when performance is evaluated team leads try to find something they can evaluated as less than 100% satisfaction. However they are open to discuss.

    Advice to Management

    I think ifb is great. Great people, a lot to learn, a lot to do, chances to thrive. The salaries may not always be competitive but they are good enough.

    Awesome work environment with awesome colleagues. The hierarchy is quite flat even though it has been changing a bit in the last few months, so it gives freedom and you can easily talk with senior colleagues.

    In some cases is not clear to whom you must talk regarding certain topics.

    Advice to Management

    ifb is an awesome company, awesome colleagues, and awesome work environment. Try to keep the flat hierarchy as long as possible.
