Automation Engineer (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 17, 2016
IPsoft is absolutely going places. Because the company expanded quite rapidly over the last two years, there isn't much height to the company hierarchy but that is a good thing for new hires. It is very easy to accelerate your career at IPsoft if you work hard to complete your work efficiently and thoroughly while asking for additional special projects.
free snacks and drinks, keg in the kitchen for when we have really good days.
Salary is average but the company is ahead of the curve

High volume work in a comfortable setting. Some nice perks like free food and coffee. The culture is odd, they do not necessary promote the best people to the best roles. It is a bit of an "old boys club". They invest in the loudest, not the smartest or hardest working. Work is highly geared in their proprietary system, as a result I feel it is tough to move away from the company and go elsewhere. Job is secure and the company is a good one the bet on the long term, they will go far.
Great view, free food, good compensation, lavish parties
Little freedom during the work day, many get stuck doing thankless tasks, cannot work from home, many coworkers have bad attitudes, very difficult to move up or leave, unusually high accountability, very few women
I was let go without any notice from a manager I've never met located in an office 1500 miles away from where I worked. The issue was something that was not proven to be my fault and I was given no warnings beforehand. The business is hostile and unsupportive in every way. No training, no patience, just demands and time limits. Every department they have is under resourced and they're doing nothing to fix it. Definitely a good ol boys network on the top.

After 3 months of being there I started noticing that what this company does is actually grab our jobs from other companies and manages them, the try to gain their employees with free breakfast, snacks and parties, but little by little is taking our jobs from us.
Helpdesk Administrator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 23, 2013
I worked for IPsoft for almost 2 years. The company, as a whole, is great! I believed in every aspect of the company's philosophy. I felt connected to the executives at the company and enjoyed the environment and everyone I worked with. My biggest gripe would be that there was no performance improvement plans. I don't know if it was like this in all departments, but I was given 1 strike and out. I would have loved to have planted my flag at a company that is poised to make a massive splash in Managed Services, however, apparently, the "company" did not feel the same way. Additionally, we were required to work 1 weekend day a week, which typically, consisted of 3 calls over a 9 hour shift, with approximately 20 tickets split among 5 people.
bonuses, benefits, monthly happy hours, company anniv. party, holiday party, free coke products, fresh fruit daily, semi-weekly lunches
poor management, no performance improvement offered, weekend hours

While all companies have their pros and cons, IPsoft overall is a great company. Many companies claim generalized statements such as 'we're a family' and being a 'flat organization' and 'open door policies' but IPsoft actually practices these key elements that make work an excited place to be.
work life balance, good communication from top down, culture, advancement opportunities
