    I worked at iCIMS full-time (More than 3 years)


    The people who worked here were awesome. My teams felt like families and a lot of the connections I made exist beyond my employment.


    Acquired by the Private Equity Firm Vista and things started to go downhill. I would like to believe I was one of the more hopefully people who thought things wouldn't be too bad once Vista hopped on board but I soon realized I was sadly mistaken.

    Since iCIMS was acquired by Vista the culture felt it began to go downhill. Soon the focus was not about building something 'bug free' or 'easy to use' but on making sure things were released ASAP; whether the product was bug free was something we would worry about "after release".

    To make things worse, a plan was set in place to get rid of all test engineers within the company. They wanted to turn these TE's into "Software Engineers" and developers when in-turn expected to begin UI testing as well. This, unfortunately, called for many people well into their careers to consider changing their own career path.

    While I stayed optimistic about this career change, a year later I was informed we want to move testing off-shore. This product already had enough issues while being tested internally, by the people who know it the best. I can't imagine how many issues will result from this off-shore testing...

    All in all, I loved working for this company for the last few years but was unfortunately met with the sad reality of private equity - soon became about reducing unnecessary expenses and streamlining our business to improve profit/expense ratios, but in theory, the human component suffered tremendously.

    Advice to Management

    Please follow one of your most important core competencies, Transparency, and refrain from providing any poor lip service that comes with P/E acquisition. Please do not promise the preservation of culture and improving things for the employees, when it becomes more and more clear that the objective is really to make the balance sheet lean enough to sell before a decline in quality is known by clients.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at iCIMS in May 2020.


    My interview process was completed entirely remote via Zoom calls due to COVID. My TA specialists Jillian coordinated multiple meetings across sales, support, and executives before an offer was made. I was very impressed with frequent updates and overall engagement of team and commitment to make the right hire.
