    I have been working at Intelex Technologies (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Market leader in our segment, fantastic growth potential
    - Software helps corporate customers reduce impact on the environment and improve the health and safety of their employees - a very worthy cause
    - Significant increase in talent across the business over the past 18 months
    - Staff are overwhelmingly friendly, dedicated and embrace teamwork
    - loads of career potential for people who work hard and perform

    Cons

    - With fast growth comes lots of change, it can be fun but also challenging at times
    - Many reviews note exiting of some employees as new roles/people brought on (I don't think this is a bad thing as business trying to up the expectations of our talent pool)
    - Some legacy employees do not like change and seem overly negative (as evidenced in some reviews)

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. The business has great potential and we have lots of great people to achieve this. Legacy staff that don't like new challenges should move on if they are not committed to building a bigger and better company.

    I have been working at Intelex Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Constantly iterating processes and approach to ensure we stay ahead of the market.
    - Creative input encouraged
    - Expansive territories with lots of opportunities, leading to an attainable (or exceedable) OTE
    - Great place to develop a wide arrange of skills (prospecting, demoing, responding to RFPs, communicating with multiple stakeholders)
    - Occasional international travel
    - Strong, organic culture

    Cons

    - Constant change can be stressful
    - Big learning curve can lead to it taking time to get to first sale
    - Smaller company, so you feel the bumps
    - Young management leaving little room for accelerated job growth

    Advice to Management

    - Implement strategies to help employees reach their career goals (career pathing)
    - Look at the talent you have internally, rather than always reaching outside the company
    - Insulate employees from the changes, bumps better

    I worked at Intelex Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - great culture and work/life balance
    - great benefits and perks - no dress code, free gym membership, birthday off, 3 weeks starting vacation etc
    - great coworkers - most people very helpful, if you're young (20s or 30s) this is a fun place to work

    Cons

    - culture is slowly dying since investors took the reigns, many of the more expensive perks they used to offer are already gone
    - company currently lacks transparency (no insight into what's going on since HR dept was gutted) and a strong sense of direction (no clear roadmap)
    - very stingy with advancements - they say after 2-3 years they will give you a promotion but they don't follow through with it or even the standard annual salary increases!
    - currently downsizing so can be laid off with zero warning/reason

    Advice to Management

    stop trying to do a million things at once and just pick a focus

    Pros

    Love the swag Intelex hands out. Especially all the mugs with our names on them.

    Cons

    How come the mugs have names of people I've never met? Oh right they don't work here anymore. Company swag is like a graveyard of employees who didn't make it. Not really a great motivator.

    Advice to Management

    Don't personalize things if you don't intend to keep employees long term.

    Pros

    One of the fast phased growing company on the EHSQ market.
    Lot's of opportunities to build carrier and advance.
    Lot's of benefits, promoting healthy life style through the clubs and events.
    Top-notch latest technologies are used for day to day life and in production to guarantee customer 100% uptime and satisfaction.

    Cons

    Located in the middle of downtown and bit hard to drive in rush hours.

    I worked at Intelex Technologies (More than a year)

    Pros

    The software is best, or near best in class for what it does.
    The CEO is a nice person who wants to promote from within.
    Sales team is remarkably nice and supportive.

    Cons

    The software is over priced and the start up fees are often a deal breaker. Too many clients can spend 20% of what I was charging to get 80% of what they're looking for. Very long ramp up period and longer sales cycles.
    Management seems to turn over frequently, with new priorities and paradigms annually.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy and stick with it. Make the company less of a clique consisting of who you like and more of a meritocracy. Management is mostly straight, white males who have only ever worked at Intelex. Diversity of opinions is healthy.

    I have been working at Intelex Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Intelex is bar none, the best organization I have ever worked for. Other companies talk a lot about culture, and caring, but Intelex actually ‘Walks the Talk.’ At Intelex I feel my career has been positively impacted; I have been given an opportunity to push myself and grow my skills. When I have an idea, I feel I am listened to, and they are acted upon. At Intelex your voice is heard, your career can grow, and you can positively bring Goodwill to the world.

    - Challenging work
    - Ability to influence Intelex's processes and have a meaningful impact on the company’s success
    - Working for an organization that cares about your well being
    - Opportunity to pursue your passion, and build your career
    - Great Perks and Benefits
    - Fast paced and constantly growing

    Cons

    With incredible growth comes change. If you can't handle change, this isn't the place for you.
    To achieve the companies goals, takes hard work. If you don't want to roll up your sleeves, this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Hard things are hard. Don't sway from the path to success. Continue to make the tough decisions for the future of the company.

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    Clubs and events
    Comradely among teams members is really great

    Cons

    "The Management Club", the managers who have been with the company for ages and enjoy bullying people in other departments since there will be no repercussions
    -Being pretty and liking to party will get you further than any amount of work
    -When barriers and impediments are brought up during monthly meetings, management will pretend they are trying to help sort them out when setting up to fire you- no transparency from management

    Advice to Management

    Get new managers, ones who actually try to help their employees
    Restructure sales organization- its like the wild west where they can do anything they want because they bring in the money
    Hire competent people, not people fresh out of school or based on their looks
