Was not the best fit for my skills
Associate Commercial Director (Former Employee) –  London, ON14 May 2018
Competitive Call Centre environment. Not what I am built for.

Very fast paced and often tough to keep up with trends. Training methods are ok - not much training to deal with companies being chased after.

If you are built for sales, this is a good place to test your skills.

Good people, management unwilling or unable
Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto14 April 2018
A constantly changing environment with little to no consistent direction. Info-Tech has a knack for attracting talented people but not retaining them. People either learn to game the system (sales especially), befriend the CEO and rapidly progress through the company, or get completely disheartened and leave.

The CEO is incapable of relinquishing control and competent managers are severely limited in what they can accomplish. Constant changes in direction have left the company's research product a shell of its former self. Management realized that the only way left to demonstrate value is to throw overworked, under-prepared analysts in front of clients at every possible opportunity. The fact that these analysts continue to bend over backwards and pull off miracles is the only thing keeping the company afloat.

Pros: Get exposure to a wide variety of clients and quickly build the skills you need to move on to a better job.

Cons: Every day the management finds new ways to leave you beat-down and dejected.

Toxic place to work
COMMERCIAL DIRECTOR (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 October 2017
I wouldn't recommend this place for any one other than people right out of school with no experience. This is a badly run private company and doesn't function like a normal business. There is poor training and development. Little opportunity for career advancement. Management is unprofessional. The product is very difficult to sell.
Pros
great people
Cons
corrupt management, difficult product to sell, no career advancement

I have enjoyed working here, but would not dedicate my career.

Good office, mostly happy people. Good for new graduates.
Office Administrator & Events Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 July 2017
Info-Tech is good for new grads. The pay is decent if you're in sales, but not ideal if you are in any other department, with the exception of upper management. The atmosphere is good and the executives do seem to actually try to make it better continuously.
Pros
Great buildings, good people, free fruit, good benefits, big focus on fun events for employees.
Cons
Non-Sales employees could be paid better

Top 50 best companies to work for in Ontario
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  London Ontario4 September 2013
As a Business Development Manager I was responsible for Mid-Large size acquisitions and growing my book of business over the telephone and video conferencing. The hardest part this job was connecting with prospective clients and enticing them to a presentation in a very short period of time. What I learned at Info-Tech was that if you use your listening skills you can decipher what the clients need is, understand that need, and recommend a solution to that need. The best part of this job was using all ones skills to provided the right solution recommendation that made a difference for each client.
