    Good place to work if you are not an aggressive employee

    Senior Developer (Current Employee) Naperville, IL

    ProsGood work/life balance, hours are flexible, you have time to learn, not a lot of stress, free lunch, fruits, snacks, tea and coffee, pay is ok. They have summer hours program and jeans day every Friday in the summer. They have some discounts for employees and they are thinking of creating a day care.

    ConsWork from home is not available and the lunch could have some more healthier options.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I agree

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Naperville, IL

    ProsI agree with the others. Good benefits, free lunch, etc. The work is rather easy, so there is not much stress.

    ConsPolitical. my managers are not very involved with the associates, so there is little communication. Most people feel they are underpaid

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate, take time to talk to those you manage and get to know them
    Managers need to give more responsibility to the associates

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
