    Pros

    If you are straight out of college, it's a good opportunity to get some experience. They provide some training. You will learn how to use a CRM system which is a vital skill to have, but extremely boring. People you work with are great too! You can always shoot the s* w them as long as you put 80 something calls a day. IQPC employees are hounded by other companies, so you will get a lot of job offers from recruiters trying to poach you.

    Cons

    For their events: Profit first, quality later.
    It gets boring and repetitive if you're college educated. There are no challenges to overcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can run your company anyway you want, you have your priorities and we have ours. For me, If the job is boring, I will jump ship. So dont promises the world to a new college grad when all you offer is a small pond.

    Pros

    Relatively good training. International travel for some roles.

    Cons

    On the surface IQPC London, Victoria seems like a work hard, play hard environment with no staff hierarchy. In reality this is a company of jumped up job titles, a massive gap between senior management and the masses and little respect for staff. You will have no work life balance, so be prepared to add an extra 2 hours a day to the advertised job hours... the only flexibility on offer is whether you do those extra hours morning or evening. This may be denied at interview but that is the REALITY.

    Be prepared to have about 5 managers, there is no one in the company below 'manager' status, job titles are jumped up to encourage self importance which doesn't trickle down in a good way. There is high staff turnover across the board and depending on which department you work in there is no sense of team work.

    Oh and top of a heavy work load you'll be expected to produce a plan to explain your plan, to explain your plan as well as having 10 meetings a day to 'plan'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some older people into the company so it stops feeling like a bad Syfy movie whereby all people over 40 are mysteriously removed. Stop making people under 30 company 'directors' its laughed about by many and it promotes a culture of 'kissing your way to the top' rather than promotion based on experience and merit.
