loads of recognition for employees. parties (of some sort) on a monthly basis, more often in summer. work hard, play hard, celebrate, definitely lives by that.
Freedom to work independently
workload distribution was hit and miss in terms of fairness, is also client-driven. more demanding clients = more work.
Attitude towards older colleagues
there was a good mix of people that were hired, and that work there (in terms of age). it came down to qualifications and experience. Some jobs were entry level, some were not.
there were places to move within the company, but not directly related to what I did, so my position was fairly unique and I felt "stuck" as I didn't want to move into a sales type or role, or something that was more client-driven/support.
Overall compensation for your work
the parties, and non-financial benefits were great. health coverage was ok, not cheap.
PTO was very good, something I miss.
Office / Work Environment
some buildings/cubes were out of date/old when i worked there, been upgraded since. better now, but can't rate it for the now since I don't really know it.
this is client-driven. i worked at home a lot on nights and weekends. certain times of the month i would be monitoring email until i went to bed and would have to respond in 10 minutes otherwise I'd get emailed again or called for the answer. co-workers understood work-life balance, client did not. not all clients were like that.
i felt mostly safe in my position, but knew that if I didn't meet the mark set by the client (internal and external) there would be questions asked and things would change...including my employment at BI.
i felt accomplished finishing tasks, but had another one to jump right in to, leaving no time to take a breath.
Inclusive / Diverse
overall it was good, everyone there is nice. there is definitely noticeable cliques that form that make things tough to work with/feel good about.
Suggestions for improvement
- The one thing that comes to mind, would be to enable the managers/directors to back their employers when talking to the clients. BI is a very client-pleasing company (as they should be, clients pay the bills), but I got very burnt out from a demanding client and there wasn't much of anything that could have been done about it.
What I like about the company
good benefits, great parties, overall a good employer.
What I dislike about the company
can't think of anything I didn't like.
