Project Management Consultant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – June 4, 2018
This is an absolutely exceptional company that is values based, develops its work force, and truly cares about its people. The CEO is a visionary who consistently plans for the future growth and success of the organization and its most important resource...its people.

The training is clearly defined but also rigorous which feels like a part time class for 3 weeks, called PREP. You are "Integrated" into the client's office most of the time and support their project as if you were part of that company.
Leadership at IPM is beyond willing to support and listen to your experiences and help when possible. There is never a wrong questions.
the company's SharePoint site is incredibly open and clear and it is easy to find all the resources you need.
The flexibility as a consultant is important but they try and reduce or reward those situations by also being generous with reimbursement, bonuses, and recently profit-sharing.
Dealing with teams and sponsors of various types can be difficult and also going into a new project could potentially be daunting but leaning on your manager (Director) is effective.
Flexibility, team building, activities, quarterly staff meetings, reimbursement, tons of different opportunities
Project Management Associate (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 21, 2018
IPM is great for so many reasons, with the best reason being the culture. Everyone at IPM wants to help each other and truly treats employees like family. The hardest part of the job is always being expected to put out your best work and continuous improvement, but they also give you the tools to do so. IPM truly focuses on the concept that their product is their people and in order to have the best product, they treat their people amazingly.
Senior Project Management Consultant (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – November 13, 2017
In my 30 years in the workforce, my time at IPM has been the best in terms of quality of coworkers and overall work environment. It is a collaborative, team environment that people feel good about working in. The job can be stressful and grueling at times, but the company makes a concerted effort to take care of its people in the tough times.
Exceptional people; professional environment; company with a soul.
Project Management Consultant (Current Employee) – Burr Ridge, IL – January 31, 2017
The people at IPM are wonderful. My peers are bright and talented and push me every day to be better. Management is great. Never in my career have I felt that my manager cared more about my own growth, development and career goals than I have felt here. And this has been true with multiple managers in the organization. The executive team is smart and leads by example ethically, professionally and culturally. Projects are challenging and matter significantly to the clients we work for. I feel that I have a green light to focus on areas of passion for me in a pursuit to grow IPM and make the organization better. The hardest part of my job is finding time to work on those internal initiatives that benefit IPM with a full-time consulting workload. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to work with a number of great organizations. The people you meet, relationships you forge and things you learn from this exposure are invaluable. People should keep in mind that this is a business consulting firm. So as a consultant, the majority of your time will be spent at client sites and not at the IPM office. Additionally, commutes can be long as with any consulting job. If you understand the demands of business consulting and are ok with them, I can't imagine a better organization to do it with.
Great people, challenging work, genuine management, impressive clients
Employee (Former Employee) – Burr Ridge, IL – April 28, 2016
The culture is wonderful and overall is a wonderful place to work at due to the events that take place as well as the co-workers that are there to make working fun. The CEO in particular is a wonderful person to work with and even talk to. The benefits offered are top-notch but that is where the good stops. The expectations that the company has for you is unrealistic and the weekly one-on-one meetings and evaluations will tire you out. Basically put, if the job given to you is a lot and can't be finished within a day, you better work from home to complete it even if you're an hourly employee. I'm sure it depends on who your manager is but there isn't a real standard to the evaluation so it feels imbalanced and more unfair for an honest working employee. There isn't a real standard for things there which in turn makes working hard as there isn't any clearly defined expectation of how things are done or what is expected of you.
I'm sure with improvement, the company could greatly expand but as it is currently, I can't see it growing rapidly with minor things that set it back.
Occasional lunches and parties, extravagant events, benefits

Most of the people there are great to work with and they treat you like family. They have a great and established reputation that will guarantee success in the future. The only fault I found at Integrated Project Management was management in expecting 100% from you right from Day 1. You are trained for a day and you are expected to know the material after a few hours of training.

IPM has very demanding and unrealistic expectations. No casual days, not even Friday. They boast about being voted a great place to work, but that only happened because of the benefits, not the work environment! PMs travel A LOT and are a pain to work with! I recommend working elsewhere!
Demanding and driven company with high standards of quality.
Project Management Consultant (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – January 14, 2014
Provided Project Management Consulting services at client sites throughout the United States. I learned to trust and rely on Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in the execution projects. The most challenging part of the job was relationship building with the SMEs in a very compressed timeframe.
