Info-Tech Research Group – Why Work For Us?


Info-Tech Research Group is the world's fastest growing IT research and advisory firm. Founded in 1997, Info-Tech produces unbiased and highly relevant IT research solutions. Since 2010 McLean & Company, a division of Info-Tech, has provided the same, unmatched expertise to HR professionals worldwide.

A little History

In 1997 Google, LinkedIn and Facebook did not exist. Smartphones and cloud storage were at least a decade away. Wearable technology was non-existent. Yet that year Joel McLean, a graduate of the Ivey School of Business, had the foresight to recognize that business leaders would need help navigating IT’s rapidly changing landscape. Based on a business plan he created for one of his professors, Joel founded Info-Tech Research Group in 1997 to develop research products and tools for business. His vision was to build a company that consolidated IT information to provide practical advice in a user-friendly format to these professionals.


Joel started the company in London, Ontario with three employees. In 2001 the company was awarded the London Chamber of Commerce E-Business Achievement Award and named a regional winner for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. In 2002 Info-Tech Research Group was named as one of Canada’s 50 Hottest Start-ups. And in 2004 the company ranked 9th in Profit magazine’s list of 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Canada. Fast forward to 2015 and the company still ranks as one of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies.


Today Info-Tech Research Group has nearly 500 employees in four subsidiary companies in Canada and the United States. Outsell, Inc. (an independent market research firm), consistently recognizes the company as a market leader in terms of our “ability to execute” and being “in tune with tomorrow”, positioning us above such global industry giants as Gartner, Forrester, CEB and IDC.

    I have been working at Info-Tech Research Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great modern offices in Toronto and London (Ontario).
    Relaxed dynamic environment, no dress code (for devs at least).
    Many fun events throughout the year.
    Most development is based on Rails but if you are the right fit they'll let you learn Rails on the job (you still need relevant experience with other technologies).
    In general it feels good to work there.

    Cons

    Benefits are average. Can't think of anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade benefits.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Info-Tech Research Group (Toronto, ON) in October-2015.

    Interview

    On-campus first round, in-person second round. Interviews are fair and a good indication of what the job is like. The first round uses a case interview method while the second is a behavioural one.
