    I have been working at IQPC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I recently read a review on here basically shaming the company I work for! Some of the things said including cultural discrimination are just completely false. It’s a fantastic place to work for, that values meritocracy and equality. I’ve only been here for 6 months out of uni and can say it’s been such a valuable experience.

    Cons

    There is some pressure but that’s just sales!

    I have been working at IQPC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Fantastic training opportunities - especially the Managers Development programme. - If you show you are invested in the company, high management will invest their resources in you - High management open to trying new ideas - You are allowed to make mistakes as long as you learn from there - Very good work / life balance - we are not expected to work late, just work smart. - HR have recently invested more into work / health benefits

    Cons

    -Websites and brochures need updating - Office layout could be improved - a place to eat lunch would make all the difference - Not enough meeting rooms - There are a lot of events - must be able to prioritise and manage your time

    I worked at IQPC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None - absolutely nothing

    Cons

    It’s a corrupt system where one person who’s been there for 10 years gets to ring fence all the best leads whilst the others scrape for crumbs. Your given a script when you start, with decent training but there’s no strategy in the sales campaign and just all cold calls and blind Calls to enquiries and content downloads. Managements terrible and corrupt and the MD makes really inappropriate comments
