There is still hope
Sr. Business Development Manager, Procurement (Current Employee) –  Brentwood, CA2 July 2018
This company is the creation of the improper people being promoted to leadership positions when they do not have the proper training, skill set, nor experience to lead teams, let alone a company, not to mention launch an entire product to a new industry. Great people, cool product, just poorly guided.

Fun place to work
Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA30 April 2018
Very meeting centric. Too much internal political influences. initiatives driven from Australia even though it was U.S company. Great work culture, fun place, good people. Limited growth as it was family run business.

CRM Review
CLIENT RELATIONSHIP MANAGER (Current Employee) –  New York, NY22 April 2018
-Truly need for more competitive salaries

-Need a team dedicated to accounts that have a 10% chance of being renewed

-100% is a bit unrealistic given the poor book of accounts one may be expected to manage

Cool Company
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NY7 September 2017
Glorified Telemarketing a product that is in fact tough to sell when its a 'very nice to have.' Management and training is robust, but does get a little repetitive. Tenured Sales people have big accounts, leaving new folks to scrounge for smaller opportunities while also maintaining metric #s
Pros
Young friendly environment, Financial District.
Cons
Smaller opportunities on BizDev side

Passive aggressive environment
Senior Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA29 August 2017
This company gives you the perception of family but it's just not true. This company is about cliques and who likes you and less about contribution.

Management is trained to create a wall between BDM and upper management. There is a clear disconnect from the reality of starting a new business and celebrated past success.

This company at times can be racially insensitive and has a culture that is more fitting for singles who love to get drunk. If you don't share all of your personal business you may be considered an outsider or a threat to the culture.

No consistency in the treatment and discipline of employees, back handed complements from management, and a lot of empty promises of earning potential. This is a great place if you love a sales process that takes a year to complete then an additional 3-6 months to get paid.

Good Company that will train you to be a better sales professional
Business Development Executive (Current Employee) –  New York, NY27 June 2017
IBISWorld allowed for me to really sharpen my soft skills and better understand economics and trends as a whole. IBISWorld is keen on promoting from within. This can often mean your former teammate is now managing your efforts (this also means there is room to move into management if you are interested.) Tenure is not necessarily a factor in recognizing management material either. This was positive for my experience as my manager and I progressed through our roles and responsibilities together.
A lot of opportunities are tied up with more senior sales people which is extremely frustrating and tends to leave less tenured people with smaller, less lucrative accounts who are less likely to have budget for the product. There is little to no lead generation so just be sure to anticipate quite a bit of cold out reach
Pros
Top Notch Training
Cons
Product Improvements would lead to expansion into other verticals

For entry level sales employee
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA17 May 2017
Management is always where you make or break employees. This place has a serious mid-management cancer. There is a true disconnect between the executives, and The Churn and Burn Factory. Many mixed messages from the top. They say one thing yet actions display otherwise. Most of the greatest sales reps and editors have lost respect for the Exec. Suite. It's as if leadership, is in dire need of some leadership. It's just a mess! Save yourself a year or two of your time. Benefits aren't the best either.
Pros
Free Breakfast on Fridays if you love bagels solely cause that's it
Cons
Heavy Traffic, Horrible Parking or Pay Monthly

Great people, hard product.
Business Development Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA20 March 2017
Excellent training, managers, and work-life balance.

It is a cold calling job, and inbound leads are rare.

Product is not for everyone, extremely niche and you are selling something that no one has heard about. The office can feel a bit cramped at times.

No room for growth
CLIENT RELATIONSHIP MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA27 December 2016
No room for growth, culture is very stiff. Compensation is not up to par with the amount of work that is done on a daily basis.

Business Development Manager (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica, CA14 October 2016
This was the worst job I have ever had. The managers all like to micromanage the employees and it is a very stressful situation. Procurement is very boring,

Great company
Industry Research Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NY4 October 2016
The company itself is great and there is an overall good culture. There is a bit of turnover on the analyst side and it is a bit hard to move up. The CEO and managers are great overall.

Management goes out of their way to show they care. Work can be a little dull, but they do their best to make it fun. Awesome co-workers and you learn a lot.

A good experience for out of college
Procurement Analyst (Former Employee) –  Santa Monica, CA15 January 2015
IBISWorld was an ok company but management was seemingly inexperienced. The business structure was based on high employee turn-over and as such they treated the analysts as disposable.

Compensation was below market average although the benefits package was nice.
Pros
Micromanagement wasn't really a thing
Cons
Management was lacking

Good Product- SOP needed
Client Relationship Director (Current Employee) –  New York, NY1 June 2013
Creating a work flow was my biggest goal at the start of my career at IBIS. Grossly understaffed, I was hired as part of an initial expansion effort. A typical day consisted of reviewing upcoming client contract renewals to avoid any lapses while simultaneously keeping lines of communication open with book of business to identify growth potential and increase potential for retention year over year.

Multi tasking and thick skin iis imperative.

IBISWorld would have been a dream career move for me- but as far as advancement based on merit, my experience was less than ideal. Due to the need for aggressive hiring, upper management began bringing in friends and familky. office soon became extremely fraternal, and took on a haves and have not mentality.
