    Great Place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe office culture, while conservative was very friendly and family-oriented. Most employees worked with the company for over 20 years. Great place to learn the ropes.

    ConsWhile compensation was fair, it was a bit on the low end of the range.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A truly horrid company to work for.

    Structural Designer (Former Employee) Minden, LA (US)

    ProsI needed a job and they had one. When you're in need of a paycheck you can't be choosy. Well, I needed a paycheck so I wasn't choosy.

    ConsSee above, it's much easier to discuss what the benefits were and assume all else was a con. Working for Inland was a pleasure much in the same way herpes isn't.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company has been acquired so there isn't really much to say here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    MoHighly negative s

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPays well and that's about it.

    Great people and rewarding place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany culture was one of encouraging individual growth and support.

    ConsThe business decision to consolidate multiple, un-related lines of business proved to be more challenging and resulted in the firm's financial issues. I believe the company was divested and sold.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Great Company, Great Internal Audit Department
