What It Means by “Sharing the IFI Experience”
We’re unique and some may describe us as being quirky in a fun way because we like to celebrate our differences; both personally and professionally. Things in our world are always changing, and our employees are challenged every day--either using new technologies or by the creation of perspectives through the lens of a kaleidoscope. Each day is different, and it’s never the same old thing.
Our office has a cool vibe to it with state-of-the-art technology, stand-up desks, and personalized snacks. Each member of our team is more than a number or “just” an employee: we’re uniquely human and treat each other with dignity and respect.
Our company fosters a spirit of camaraderie. By working collaboratively, developing solutions, adapting to change, and applying new technologies, we consistently develop key skill sets needed to maintain success in our environment.
