    I have been working at Investigo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a tough climb but once you get there it is really worth it. There is a very rewarding commission scheme mixed with rewarding internal incentives. It seems like the organisation are genuinely concerned in their own continual development & improvement for the benefit of retaining top tier staff and that grounded sense of humility and inclusiveness very obviously resonates through the company.

    Cons

    Integration across the company is often spoken about but little is formally done to push this. I would recommend driving hot desking and to consider other initiatives to rotate seats around the company for the benefit of connecting the company better and improving cross-selling.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep looking at ways to improve things at the bottom line.

    I have been working at Investigo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Having worked at Investigo for around 4 years, I have to say that this business still amazes me. They have somehow managed to keep the small business feel, where everyone matters, at the same time as packing a powerful corporate punch, which overall makes it a great place to work.

    I have been genuinely inspired by my time here by some very strong leaders, including the recently promoted CEO Nick Baxter.

    The whole senior leadership team are very unique and there is a very autonomous culture where even junior consultants joining the business are treated with great respect by the senior managers.

    The business is collaborative, innovative and a genuinely fun place to work. For those who achieve, the financial rewards are second to none. The company has a great reputation in the market which has allowed me to break into a new sector and create a thriving business unit in a relatively short space of time.

    If you want to enjoy going to work, learn about business and develop on a daily basis and be financially rewarded for your efforts, Investigo is the company you should work for.

    Cons

    Nothing worth mentioning, generally positive all round.

    Advice to Management

    Keep inspiring and motivating more junior members of staff, they are the future of the business.

    I have been working at Investigo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People, Culture, Reward, Progress & Reputation

    Since joining here nearly 7 years ago I have been seen the company grow from 60 to close to 200 people. Being part of that journey has been both rewarding & fun. The personalities & culture within the business haven't changed and work is still as fun as the day I walked in.

    It's a great place to work where the rewards for hard work are clear to see.

    From commission, high achievers trips & quarterly events the business ensures we are engaged in what's going on with the business and allow us plenty of time to integrate.

    I think the big thing for me is that it's still a joined up & rewarding environment to work in.

    Private Health insurance is a massive bonus as well as the various sporting events we run.

    Cons

    Working from home could be looked at in more detail.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to adapt with new trends in terms of lifestyle and the wider market. Look to continue & add to the flexible benefits on offer to suit all. The corporate golf membership was an exceptional perk.

    I worked at Investigo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company culture is great. Quite an autonomous environment where management will let you get on with things, provided that you can demonstrate your ability. Good feel about the business day to day, where people are genuinely happy and friendly. Excellent incentive rewards offered to everyone, every QTR. Commission structure reasonably good.

    Cons

    Promotion criteria, probably could be looked at
    Quite federated in terms of business units
    Work life balance can be looked at, but in comparison to market it's probably one of the better mid-sized agencies

    Advice to Management

    Maybe the business needs less non-billing management positions...
