Company Culture

The culture is bi-polar: if you are part of the "in-crowd" you are treated with tremendous decency and respect, but if you fall out of favor for any reason you will be lucky if they say hello to you.

Support from management

Senior leadership tends to be absent from the organization and relies on middle management to make things work. Senior management considers their primary responsibility as managing SUBWAY not their employees.

Teamwork

Very collaborative team environment

Freedom to work independently

Employees with high aptitude are encouraged to push themselves and are often acknowledged or rewarded for this behavior

Internal Communication

Erratic - messages change all the time along with the priorities

Gender Equality

There is no equality at IPC. There is no documented career development or formal management training. HR is atrocious and acts more as a policing department than talent retention and growth.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Employees hold other employees with great respect - upper management only recognizes their favorites based sometimes on troubling characteristics that have nothing to do with the quality of the work they do

Career Development

Non-Existent. Company will "save" people from lay-offs that they like and put them in jobs that they aren't qualified to do, while letting others who are qualified but not "in" get walked to the door

Overall compensation for your work

IPC has a very equitable compensation and benefit plan

Environmental Friendliness

IPC is a highly reputable organization in its negotiations with vendors - the questionable stuff takes place internally

Work-Life Balance

Those who get ahead tend to work long hours, similar to most organizations

Company Image

IPC is highly regarded in the industry

Job Security

If you are part of the "in crowd" it's like having tenure. The moment you fall out - sometimes for reasons out of your control - you have absolutely no job security

Challenging Work

While it varies by department most jobs require a fair amount of creativity and effort

Suggestions for improvement

  • Relax the dress code; people can be professional without having to wear a tie everyday. Challenge HR to stop policing people and actually create a career development plan to grow internal talent. Recognize that all people regardless of their position have great value to the organization and treat everyone with the same level of respect

What I like about the company

Tremendously talented and passionate people who really do want to improve the workings and operations for Subway franchisees

What I dislike about the company

IPC Board of Directors waste a great deal of the franchisee's money and behave in an extremely unethical manner. They believe their election to the Board is license to do whatever they please ad spend as much as they want with little or no recourse
