Network Administrator (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – December 2, 2018
I worked in IT and the IT director did not have any respect for the people who work for him. One of the worst bosses I've ever had. Hard to deal with it. The benefit was not that good. For example, they had 401K without any company matches. You will have to save your own money for your retirement.
Administrative/Sales Intern (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – March 27, 2018
At Impact, you're expected to work hard; people that aren't self-motivated probably won't last very long. That being said, if you stick it out, the workplace is fantastic and the culture there is second to none. Very tight-knit community. Lots of opportunity for advancement, if you perform well you will be noticed.
Services (Former Employee) – Darien, IL – February 19, 2018
Cohesive Leadership and Entrepreneurial culture are the keys to this organization...and they make it work. Expectations are high, but so are the rewards. If you have the right attitude and drive, this is an excellent place to work.
Senior IT Help Desk (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – November 7, 2017
Very unorganized company. Yes, they have quarterly raffles but somehow that doesn't compensate for the outrageous health insurance costs. Everyone is drinking the Koolaid at Impact thinking that the more customers they obtain is all that matters. There is no organization of the information they acquire from these customers. Very arrogant management. Especially within IT. You're better off somewhere else.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 19, 2017
The Indianapolis office of the GM and SM are jokes in the local area. Training is good, but not applicable to sales in the field on the products. Stay away from this company, there is no future success.
Impact wants ALL of their employees to succeed and advance in their career. Hard work is rewarded, and one must work to their potential, NO SLACKERS.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – IN – September 30, 2017
I have worked for impact for almost a year. Starting out, training is at headquarters, they provide ones stay and Impact gear, and those applicable will receive their company car, etc. I have put in a lot of hard work and drive to build my clientele. Impact gives their employees the tools, advice, motivation and rewards to keep employees striving for success. Upper management and ownership are involved and always give recognition and rewards when earned. Working at Impact means working. Everyone does their part in making Impact a successful company.
Highly rewarded, opportunity for growth, Fun atmosphere, Great company culture, Paid time off, medical benefits
Life/work balance throughout the work week (off every weekend)
Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 6, 2017
Impact is a very entrepreneurial, fast-paced and fun environment. With over 400 employees, the owners still do a very good job at making sure we keep a very close niche and family oriented environment. I have been with Impact for a little over 4 years and have been challenged and happy since day 1.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 28, 2017
Impact Networking provides a great training program, however most of it will not be applied until much later on in the career. Those who enjoy the grind of cold calling and high starting quota will definitely enjoy this job.
Sales (Former Employee) – Illinois – July 31, 2017
Some managers have no idea what they are doing and how to communicate with their employees, of course, unless you are selling. Loved the working with the support team however once they have someone good they let them go.
Marketing (Current Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – July 25, 2017
Impact has a transparent, growth-oriented culture that values each employee as an individual. Managers are encouraged to reward talent and effort, and there are amazing incentives in place to reward top performers. Employees understand the value of their individual roles and how those roles interact to help the entire company be successful.
