    I have been working at iQmetrix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The people. At iQmetrix you are constantly surrounded by the hardest working most passionate people. Their drive motivates you to grow and learn on a daily basis. - The growth opportunities. iQmetrix is huge on teaching you things you may not know, and if unable to do so internally, they are big proponents on supporting external learning opportunities such as courses and seminars. Leadership is constantly... encouraging staff to seek these opportunities. - The culture. It is pretty common knowledge that iQmetrix is a very cool place to work. The perks such as the snacks and drinks readily available, the fun activities planned for team and office bonding, and the initiatives set up to support community organizations make it such a happy environment to be in. - The company values. There is nothing more inspiring and invigorating than working for a company that has healthy and forward-thinking values.

    Cons

    Especially in comparison to other companies one could work for, iQmetrix excels at so many things.

    I worked at iQmetrix full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    99% of the people here are FANTASTIC and really know their stuff.

    Cons

    The 1%, should be taken more seriously by management. During my term there this known 1% was an issue from start to end with many individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded and continue exactly what you've been doing, from my experience its a great place but I wouldn't return with teh same individuals in place. Freedom of employee's goes in both directions, and sometimes there that 1 or 2 percent take advantage of that, twisting it in ways that suit themselves best.

    I worked at iQmetrix full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Seems like it was awesome back in the day. They love to promote the glory years and talented people they have. They are pretty flexible with your time but only if you work in the right departments. Oh, and there's free beer.

    Cons

    The glory years are gone. Talented people are jumping ship for much better salaries and opportunities. If you think you're above office politics or that you'll be the one to get a raise because you're a good worker, you're mistaken. Employees talk about these issues in many departments. Executives say they want new ideas, but really they mostly want you to fall in line. Don't expect constructive coaching or... guidance. Just frustration and games.

    Advice to Management

    Management's primary focus is on raising funding money, and they've ignored or are incapable of honestly addressing the growth of the company. Good workers feel helpless and undervalued -- money wise. Turns out they want more than free soda and modern furniture. The old iQmetrix is gone. It's time to hire outside management that isn't stuck in "the good old days."

    Pros

    Free Drinks and you can leave at the end of the day

    Cons

    Changed their performance structure. It is harder to get raises in the company. Before you would get a yearly review and get a base raise as long as you are doing your job good, now you will only get a raise if you do something ground breaking. No longer can you make a career out of a single position. Tier 2 and Tier 1 are being put together, you are expected to know more but not compensated for it. Iqmetrix... seems to have turned into a company that cares less about their employees

    Pros

    It's a good brand It's a challenging environment, you will meet, work and grow with smart people You will learn alot Benefits are competitive The CEO and your team lead commends you for creating great experiences

    Cons

    Office politics. I dont perceive this as negative though, it's a reason to prove your worth. Just put in the good work continuously with a good attitude and your work will justify you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the commendations from the CEO and team leads, its quite motivating.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Nice office. An extra annual one week vacation the company organizes for employees. Good salary.

    Cons

    Lots of politics. Will recommend that company only for junior specialist or as a temporary place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Rebuild the management, get more energetic people with new ideas. Change marketing strategy .

    Pros

    Culture is good. People are very friendly and there are a lot of events and activities that bring people closer. The company encourages a good work-life balance. There are regular fitness classes and a gym in the building.

    Cons

    The company went through a restructuring last year which involved team changes and layoffs. The morale was very bad at the time. I left the job because I wasn't motivated and challenged enough in my team. Depending on which team you join, you may have great growth opportunities or none at all.

    Advice to Management

    More leadership coaching and better personal/career development budget.
