    Pros

    One of the most mature agile shops in town, learned a lot about the methods and practices on bringing software to market quicker. Lots of good folks to work with

    Cons

    Some immaturity in some of the leadership roles. Lack of advancement opportunities in some cases. Management of technical debt sometimes an issue like in most other agile shops

    Advice to Management

    Trust your technical leads as well as your analyst on charting technical direction. Give them an equal share in shaping the direction of the organization.

    I worked at IGS Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pros are some benefits offered. Other than that, there is nothing else. Base salary is 30k for Home Energy Consultants, that's a slap in the face, especially since cost of living is higher in IL than OH. The company can afford it.

    Cons

    Oh, where do I start. They are based on lies. Lies they feed to their customers and employees. It's sales so what do you expect. When recruiters call you can tell they are reading a script, they trip over their words and it's just horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay and bring outside sales in doors!

    Pros

    In central ohio where cost of living is decent.

    Cons

    The whole business model is based on "bait and switch", i.e. acquire customers with a promise of saving money, and then jack up their rates after a while. Thus, actually charging them more than they would have paid otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Your business model is outdated.

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work at IGS energy. Period.

    Cons

    This company lies to get you on board, the only advice I can give to anyone looking to hire into this company, is to steer clear especially if in the sales department.

    Pros

    Company invests in new technology to equip sales team with. Leadership shows that they actually do care about us

    Cons

    It's door to door, so you have to have tough skin, but it is a great service/product. Base pay is a little low, but commission potential is high. If you work close to corporate office, you sometimes feel a part of there culture; can't speak to other offices.
