Still love the company
Business Development Director (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIApril 4, 2018
- The imagination / creativity is completely endless at BI and it's because of the people they hire
- It seemed there wasn't anything they couldn't do to help companies achieve their engagement goals.
- That aspect of representing BI was probably the best position I was ever in - to be THAT kind of value to a company was priceless.
- I admire the top management still to this day because they're just good people and they want everyone to succeed.
Pros
People / Mgmnt / Tools / Resources / Results
Cons
I think they created the phrase "Drinking from a firehose" because there is so, so much to learn

Great company
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Eden Valley, MNFebruary 25, 2018
BI Worldwide is a very goal oriented company with reachable goals if focused. I have learned a lot of additional computer skills since starting there. The most enjoyable part of the company is there is always something new to learn.

Awful
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNFebruary 5, 2018
Unless you are lucky enough to be assigned to a designated project (which is almost never allowed) you will only be performing the job of a Business Analyst about 5% of the time. The rest of the time you will be acting as a 24/7 on call help desk for whichever client you are assigned as well as other clients when there is a need to cover for absent co-workers. You will be expected to lie to the client when there is an outage to make it seem that the fault is not that of BIW. You will not be supported by your fellow BAs nor management. You will be expected to work as many hours as it takes to meet the unreasonable deadlines set not by knowledgeable BAs, developers, or project managers, but by the sales people.
Pros
free fruit twice a week
Cons
no teamwork, unreasonable expectations, no support from management

very rigid
Call Center Associate (Former Employee) –  Eden Valley, MNJanuary 31, 2018
Working here there is a very strict rigid time schedule you must follow making employees feel restricted in a sense. They do have programs to encourage being on time and showing up for work but seemed minimal.

Behind the times for IT Companies
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Edina, MNJanuary 19, 2018
Typically a day at BIW is very reactive to customer requests. There isn't much that is regular on a day-to-day basis, and while some thrive in this environment, others are stressed out.

The management here is very interested in "filling boxes". They have pre-defined roles that people must adapt themselves into. This is different from some modern management ideas of keeping the people and fitting the roles to their strengths. So if you're looking for a place to make a role your own, this is not it. At least not at the level I achieved within the company.
Pros
Office parties, relaxed dress code
Cons
Old software, resistant to change

Business Development Director (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 28, 2017
A company started in he 50's that has many same values as then. Siloed business units with their own P&L's create competition for sales team mind share.

Company is slow to process programs

BI is a good company to work for, but slow to process programs. Very structured, which can slow things down. Lots to sell, but maybe too much.
Pros
Nice benefits
Cons
Very silo'd need to change things up a bit.

Comfortable work environment and team atmosphere
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Troy, MIAugust 30, 2015
BI Worldwide is very flexible when it comes to work/life balance. The accommodate the need to work from home to attend to other business provided all work gets done, meetings are attended and schedules are met. Team is easy going, however, the organization is so flat there is only one person in each job with no backup. This makes covering vacations difficult or if someone leaves the learning curve to fill that position is large.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Job stability, "flat" organization - no advancement

This is a great company to work for if you already know the people that work there.
Senior CSR / Dropship Inquiries Team (Current Employee) –  Eden Valley, MNJune 11, 2015
In reviewing BI Worldwide, it is my opinion that it is a great place to work if you know someone that already works there, or live in the town. Unfortunately, your raises do not reflect the work that you do on a daily basis. You can have one person that carries the weight of 5 people, gets good reviews, and maybe gets a $.20 cents per hour raise. Many of the people that work there like to spread rumors about their co-workers. And then there are others there that will not do their jobs, and get praise from the Management Team when they do one little part of their job just to appease their boss. Many of the temps that they bring in have no work ethic, sense of urgency, and lack loyalty and accountability. Many of the employees, due to the "friendships" with higher ups in the company, are able to get away with doing hardly anything; while other employees that don't "schmooz" with the bosses are expected to pick up the slack left behind. I have worked for much larger companies than this one, and have never worked in such a backward environment where even the Management team does not follow their own rules, nor do they get in trouble for breaking any of them. All in all, if you have never worked for a larger company to know the difference, you would probably think that this was a great company to work for; but if you have experience than you would know right away that there is something wrong with how the company is run in the small town.
Pros
Sometimes the employees are given points to spend in the catalog, time off certificates, and other small incentives for doing a job well done.
Cons
Too much favortism, too little compensation for a job well done, and not enough disciplinary actions taken against poor performances by employees.
