They have lot of activities happening at the firm

Featured review

IBI Group selected this as a representative review
Some days are prolonged paced and some with enough working pressure, but most of the time, it provides the right work-life balance. They have some summer activities that encourage a good and healthy lifestyle.

Thank you for taking time to write a review! We appreciate you acknowledging the fact that IBI provides the right work-life balance to our employees as that can sometimes be difficult to achieve in such a tight deadline-driven industry. We encourage all of our employees to live a balanced, healthy lifestyle and enjoy supporting that through fun health and fitness competitions, wellness resources and interactive classes with their fellow colleagues! We are glad you enjoyed these and took the time to participate!

Productive and fun workplace with table tennis table

Good organizing of working process. I've learnt a fundamental knowledge of my job responsibilities but sometimes need further mentorship. The company is a fun place to work with, though sometimes too many entertainment activities. I enjoyed the time in this company, have known many friends, and wish to concentrate on my professional career further.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Long hours

good learning experience

Management doesnt know how to retain good , sincere employees. Otherwise they have fun events. Social every last friday of the month. Stressful at times, but can have some relaxed moments as well.

Productive, Flexible working environment

A growing company looking to keep pace and lead the industry into the future by utilizing all the available tools to make it happen. There is also a drive to make the company less of a service company.

Productivity

During a typical work week, one of my biggest tasks is checking in on my tasks and assessing progress on various projects. I like to meet first thing on Mondays to discuss our priorities for the week, then meet again in the middle of the week to check progress to discuss goal setting for the next week. On Fridays, I make sure all tasks are completed and I've sent all the necessary communications via email and in person. Finally, I create a list of priorities for next week.

not an ideal place to work

Not a good place to work, very mismanaged, they have no problem under paying you, they don't reward hard work, you feel like just a number to them

A Great Place to Start My Career

IBI Group Calgary was my first job out of school, and continued for 9 years after. If it wasn't for their flexibility in your schedule, their desire for you to grow and advance in the company, the varied types of projects and the varied experiences and stages within each project that only smaller firms can offer you, and the amazing group of people that became friends and family, I would have left a long time ago. This was a great place and opportunity to grow after graduating.

Pros

flexibility, small architectural group, work on all stages of a project, many offices worldwide
