First job maybe...
Acting Supervisor (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 12, 2014
As an entry level position, you find out the harsh realities of sales. Colleagues and managers are fun people, but do not be surprised by a lack of loyalty when commission is involved. It is sink or swim without much direction on how to improve. In a tough job market it's worth experiencing, just count on having to use external tools for personal growth.

Good work/life balance, lots of travel and opportunities, bureaucratic and management issues
Social Media Strategist (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 2, 2014
Pros: good environment, travel, fun programs and good co-workers, decent hours
Cons: occasional stress, disconnect between management and staff, lack of transparency
IIR boasts a large, young work-force, which means plenty of opportunities for an active company culture with happy hours and institutionalized programs for both training and socializing. Getting to travel to events and attend sessions generally intended for senior business leaders was a great opportunity. Other perks included a discount gym membership – more... and a week off at Christmas/New Years.

However, overall pay was somewhat low and management was disconnected from the day-to-day struggles of the average employee, frequently making decisions without any input from staff. There was also very little room for advancement past a certain point. This is a company with a very wide base of lower/mid level employees and a small group of long-time management. – less

Good place to work, but expectations mysterious
Marketing Manager (Former Employee), New York NYApril 1, 2013
Pros: great incentives, good benefits, lots of challenging work
Cons: tendency towards favoritism, few opportunities for advancement
On the whole, I liked working at IIR. I got great marketing experience, and the profit-sharing program certainly boosted motivation. However, after one year I was let go for "performance issues" that were never clearly explained to me. Also, there seemed to be some inconsistency about expectations. For instance, one person might be chastised for missing – more... a deadline by a day, where a "superstar" could be six weeks late with no reprimand. Similarly, one employee's weaknesses were overlooked because of financial results, where another profitable worker might be transferred because of "poor synergy." Overall, though, I'm glad I had the opportunity to work there, and I wish I could have stayed. That said, though, I didn't see a path to advancement, and I wonder if I would have wanted more in a year or two. – less

Un lugar donde aprender a trabajar en equipo y con disciplina
Auxiliar administrativo y marketing manager (Former Employee), MadridJuly 29, 2014
Pros: horarios
Cons: relacción con los altos cargos.
En IIR la disciplina era muy importante.

Es el lugar prefecto para entrar en contacto con el mundo laboral, el netwoking, y el trabajo en equipo.

La organización para los altos cargos es algo debil, y hay bastante politica implicita en la forma de funcionar, amiguismos y demás, pero si trabajas duro, y demuestras quien eres y lo que vales, lo valoran, – more... y se nota. – less
