    I worked at IQAir

    Pros

    The people who work here are wonderful. I really liked them and miss them. However, we always seemed to have a lot of turnover, so no one was ever around long enough to get to know. The work was challenging, and what they are trying to do to better the environment we live in is wonderful.

    Cons

    Management cant make a decision. They take a long time to do so. They are very nice, but that is fine as long as you don't try to think for yourself. They want to do it all themselves and will not share any of the opportunities to make something happen. Again, they are nice. But not necessarily the best when it comes to managing a team of co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share. Hire people who understand the business and where we are trying to expand. Instead, we stay very insular and do not bring in fresh ideas.

    I have been working at IQAir full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Small company with lots of growth potential. Uses state-of-the-art technology with every technology-based project. Inclusive culture where you are asked to explore newer, better, and more efficient methodologies, processes, tools, and techniques. You are challenged daily with making yourself more efficient, resourceful, and with your general personal growth.

    Cons

    Upper management needs to better support the middle management so that it can efficiently and quickly address company objectives, goals, and issues. Also, simultaneously support its work force's concerns, and needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to encourage the use of state-of-the-art technology. Your technology division is on the cutting edge of technology, so maintain your existing ecosystem and leverage this knowledge for future products. Also, continue to develop a close and inclusive team that works like a lean, efficient machine.

    Pros

    This is a a company that stands for their product. The people are super nice and there's plenty of interesting work to go around. Free lunch on fridays and an onsite gym! If you work hard and make use of the amenities, this is a great place to spend 8 hours of your day!

    Cons

    I've only been here a few weeks, but nothing seems astray so far!

    I have been working at IQAir full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Having worked here for for less than a month, it has been everything you'd want from an employer. Your supervisors don't treat you like a slave or beneath themselves and everyone genuinely wants the company to grow and succeed it is a great environment. The perks working here are in line with some of the perks you'd receive at bigger tech companies.

    Cons

    The approval process for work can be rather long, however everything has a reason for the long approval process. If you can't take direction or aren't motivated to get tasks and project done on time then this may not be the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only been here 3 weeks and there are really no obvious changes that I could point to.

    I have been working at IQAir full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    On site gym, free lunches on Friday, hybrid vehicle program.

    Cons

    At any given time, 75% of the employees at IQAir are new hires. Unfortunately, the good hires always move on to better opportunities after 6 months or so. What's left behind is the chaff, all of the last chance salooner's and idiots that couldn't cut it anywhere else.

    Amongst this chaff, you have a few gung-ho employees who don't mind being micromanaged and are more than happy to drink and share the IQAir cool aid. However, if you spend enough time in the cafeteria, you'll meet more than one dejected and burned out employee that is in desperate need of stress leave.

    Once you get passed working with mostly depressed, incompetent robots, there is the horrible pay. Fortunately for me, I've received multiple raises.These raises have drastically improved my pay, but it is still one standard deviation from the median pay for other people in similar positions in the industry. If IQAir wants to retain young, talented employees, they need to be more competitive in pay and offer more opportunities to work from home.

    I have been working at IQAir full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you like a high speed, high energy, no nonsense, let's-get-this-job-done kind of place - this is it. You bring your skills, your drive and your determination to be better and the company will provide the tools to make it all work. Leave the excuses at home. If you work here you will be part of a company that is showing everyone else how it's supposed to be done. When the day is finished you'll be tired, exhilarated and off the clock. Burn out is strongly discouraged.

    Cons

    If I ever do run across something I don't like here then maybe I'll update my review. Okay, maybe one thing: Is there any other paint color than white?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To all the senior management: keep up the energy, excitement and drive. It lights up this building even more than the eco-friendly LED lighting.

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and will go the extra mile to help out. Company is growing and CEO wants to make this company a great place to work with a positive work environment. They just implemented a new bonus structure as well as an increase in PTO accrual. Lots and Lots of perks!!

    Cons

    You work hard EVERYDAY......If you aren't the type of person that's up for this- then don't bother applying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should make a "Suggestion" Box... Keep up the good work!!!

    Pros

    Rapidly growing company, extremely hard working staff, brand new facilities with gym, improving company culture, opportunities for training and growth

    Cons

    No bonus structure, employee compensation is not very competitive, some people will have a difficult time adapting to the high-stress & high-productivity environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some departments need better planning, cross-department communication should be improved. I would suggest having some sort of town-hall style meetings to further improve company culture.
