This is what some of our ICE colleagues had to say:

“At ICE, I have the freedom to think outside the box and have all of my thoughts considered. Since day one, I have been given the opportunity to grow and show my potential. I’m constantly learning from the best people in my department. I am always outpoured with recognition when I do good work. I beam with pride when I’m asked where I work and what I do. The people at this company are a pleasure to work with and make it enjoyable to come to work!”

“Everyone here is a joy to work with. We work well as a group and if one person’s spirit is lacking, someone else is there to be the cheerleader getting you through. We all are friends outside of work because of the relationships we have formed inside the workplace.”

“Everyone is treated as an equal member of the team, and there has never been a scenario where I was told I could not leave early or take days off at a seconds notice because of a family emergency, i.e. we are treated like family members and people here, not like numbers.”

“From top to bottom, the amazing employees at ICE make this a great company to work for. Our upper management leads by example and is directly involved with numerous day-to-day project activities. We all work as a team to accomplish a common goal – performing the highest quality work, excelling in our industry, and having fun doing it!”

“It all starts with our visionary leaders. Our owners are the hardest working PE’s I have ever met in my life. They work with our team to help us come up with innovative solutions for our customers. If we are stuck on a problem, they are the first to jump in to help. Working at ICE, I found a mentor that was vested in my success. Working with such accomplished PE’s not only inspires me but aids in my development. I know my efforts are appreciated because of the feedback I receive and the gracious bonus I was given.”

“The culture at ICE is one that values the contributions of every employee from every discipline. Everyone is encouraged to express their opinions and collaborate in all aspects of work. It is a very welcoming environment. Management is excellent at utilizing the employees strengths to provide the best service and product possible.”

THANK YOU to each and every colleague that participated in the Best Places To Work survey! Gathering employee feedback is crucial to improving our company culture, satisfaction and our overall work life, so we always encourage and are thankful for your feedback.
