Perks and Programs

We asked Integrated Project Management Company, Inc. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Insurance: IPM pays 100% of the premiums for medical and dental insurance, short-term disability, and life insurance for employees and 95% of the medical premiums for their dependents. IPM also covers the first 77% of the deductible and all of the co-insurance.
  • Mentoring: IPM provides a mentor to each newly hired employee through a formal program, which officially spans one year. The mentor helps the protégé assimilate into the IPM culture and provides guidance and support. These efforts are supported by the Company with up to $50 each month so that conversations can occur in a casual environment, such as over a meal or enjoying an activity. In such settings, a true relationship is more likely to be formed which will add value in the trust and comfort with which potential issues can be discussed. At the end of the year-long mentorship, the mentor and protégé are recognized at the Company's quarterly Staff meeting and given a leadership book of their choosing as commemoration.
  • Tuition Reimbursement: IPM provides college tuition reimbursement of $15,000 per year per employee.
  • Bonuses: IPM shares its profits with all employees. Management is eligible for the Executive Bonus Program. Every non-management person who contributed to the year's results can be rewarded through the Company Performance Bonus Program. The company has paid more than $4 million in performance bonuses to non-management employees since 2005. These bonuses have averaged 25% of the company’s profits, with last year's bonus increased to 27% of the company's profits.
  • Business Referral Bonus: Employees referring business to IPM receive an incentive equal to 3 percent of the first year's revenue from the new client. Efforts along the way are supported with the "Cha Ching" initiative. Each employee receives cash awards of $10 for providing a qualified lead, $50 for securing an introduction meeting with a prospect, and $100 for proposal generation. If a project is secured, the employee receives 3% of the revenue of the project for one year.
  • Employee Referral: Employees referring successful candidates for employment receive a $5,000 or $10,000 referral bonus (depending upon location).
  • Quarterly Staff Meetings: All employees gather each quarter in Chicago. While there is a business purpose, the most important objective of the meeting is camaraderie. Because our work is largely at our clients’ sites, it is critical for us to connect with each other face to face – it is the only way we can ensure our culture and connection with each other is maintained. The day-long event is laden heavily with hugs and laughter. Staff day begins with breakfast and ends with a fun activity and cocktails affording our employees the opportunity to mingle and re-acquaint themselves with colleagues from around the country. The cost of each meeting exceeds $150,000 however this expenditure is a critical investment in maintaining our culture.
  • Integrated Project Mercy: Giving back is a core principle of Our Mission & Beliefs, the ideals we live by every day. Integrated Project Mercy, the philanthropic arm of IPM, was founded to support Our Mission & Beliefs. Formally established in 2007, the program focuses to providing support to children, education, disease research, veterans, and the homeless both globally and within the communities where IPM employees work and live. Through Integrated Project Mercy, our employees dedicate their time and talents to their communities while strengthening their relationships with each other. Each quarter, one of the IPM offices selects the charity or cause which will be supported nationally. Through these efforts, IPM and its employees have raised over $350,000 while contributing hundreds of hours to help those in need.
  • Travel Incentive: Our travel incentive program was developed to compensate employees for extended billable travel. An extended billable travel assignment is defined as one requiring at least 50% nights away from home for a minimum of four consecutive weeks. The Travel Incentive is calculated as a 10% increase in pay for each night spent away from home.
  • Social Committees: Volunteers from each of our offices plan, organize, and facilitate fun social activities monthly throughout the year. Events such as parking lot BBQs, family picnics, chili cook-offs, dessert competitions, and First Friday cocktails are examples of such events.

How to Get Hired

We asked Integrated Project Management Company, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

  • Exceptional interpersonal and leadership skills to effectively communicate and build relationships as appropriate for each position
  • Demonstrated work ethic, integrity, and professional conduct and appearance
  • High energy
  • Proven history of holding to a high level of excellence
IPM is a community of extraordinary people who care about each other, care about quality, care about continuous improvement, and care about making the world a better place. From Our Mission & Beliefs: IPM's Mission is honored...each time an employee achieves his or her dreams, each time IPM earns an employee's loyalty, and each time the Company's efforts positively influence our society and the world in which we live.  

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Since the interview process most often begins by response to a job posting, the resume is the first glimpse into the candidates' eligibility and requisite experience.  By submitting an outstanding resume and cover letter, which displays alignment with our corporate culture, and using creativity to demonstrate excellence, interest in the resume should yield a phone interview for the applicant.  Also, the cover letter should specifically outline why the candidate is a good fit for our requirements using our position description as a guide.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We are seeking Project Management Consultants with the following qualifications: expertise in Life Science, Engineering, Consumer/Industrial Products, and/or Process Improvement Knowledge, and application of a disciplined project management process. (Six Sigma and Project Management Professional certifications are a plus). Exceptional leadership and interpersonal skills are base requirements and must be combined with the ability to communicate in a clear, concise, and professional manner.  Solid analytical and strategic capabilities and business acumen also come in very handy.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

By visiting our website, our Glassdoor, and LinkedIn pages, candidates can learn more about IPM, our employment opportunities, our culture, and our greatest asset - our employees. Interested individuals can apply for a position with IPM through our website. Our recruiting staff receives many resumes; in fact, too many to respond to each one. As a general rule, if we believe the candidates' qualifications may be a good fit with our needs, we will contact the candidate within two weeks of receiving the application and paperwork.
