Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – Reading – 8 April 2016
You agree your own realistic targets. Hands on management without micromanagement. Help when you need it. A growing company which is open to new ideas. Management who are interested in the root cause of bad figures, rather than hitting you with a stick or worse, a hire & fire attitude. Training given. Hard working bunch of really nice people and a fun atmosphere.
You are expected to take responsibility for your given area and treat it as if it was your own business. If things aren't going well, then be prepared to work harder. If things are going well, then you're not going to get any grief. You will get out of this company what you put in. There is the technical expertise and the guidance available to give you the potential to earn as much as you want.
When you're not working, there are plenty of local amenities, office pool and table tennis table, free boot camp sessions, plenty of company socials and inter consultant/ team competitions.
Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee) – Reading – 9 September 2018
IC is a micro management agency with a big drinking culture. they focussed on calls made, cvs sent and day to day activity heavily, the managers/directors watched staff like hawks and managed staff out of the door regulary. Good commission to be made but you were expected to dedicate your life to making money and no flexibility offered unless you partake in the trips to the pub.
Thank you very much for your feedback. As a growing business, it’s important that we get feedback from employees so that we can review and improve.
Yes, we do carry out meetings at the pub from time to time, to either celebrate success or have a more open and honest conversation with people on a one to one basis. We find having these meetings out of the office in a more informal environment to be much more productive and when our consultants work hard it’s important we take time out of the office to say thank you.
We’re sorry if you felt you were micro-managed on a day to day basis. The areas we encourage people to focus on are the ones that, with our 20 years of experience, seem to help them build their markets and enable them to achieve their work and personal goals. We try to be as supportive as possible but understand the environment may not suit everyone.
It is a shame that we didn’t get to discuss these things with you before you left.
IC Resources is very unique environment. Whether you are an experienced sales consultant looking to further your career, or young and enthusiastic looking to get into sales, it allows you to map out your own career path.
It is an extremely enjoyable place to work with a very fun and vibrant atmosphere that focuses on the long term views and development of it's employees rather than immediate results.
It understands the importance of maintaining a strong work life balance offering a table tennis table, pool table, personal training/bootcamp twice a week, weekly pub lunches and after work socials, plus much more.
A highly recommended company and fantastic place to work.
