Pros – I guess there are alot of fun events that the company puts on, but many times they are only for management. The benefits are pretty good. Salary is average unless you are managment. The business is not flashy but it is interesting and vital to the economy, You can learn a lot from people in the organization. The are plenty of lifers here so there must be something good. August hours are cool. Everyone is generally friendly, The new office space is outstanding. There is a lot of leeway with many jobs. Senior Management is very accessible especially Kenney. The others are fair also.
Cons – Opportunites are few and none. Kenney tries his best but he is a very moody boss. The HR department is totally incompetent. There are so many IT people running around it is unbelievable. They have initiated multiple computer enhancements with none coming to fruition. Sales and management are extremely well compensated but regular employees have a hard time getting more than a 3% bonus. There are a lot kiss ups and not much diversity. I imagine they try but there are a lot ethnic and racial cliques. The one charity that is sponsored is not very varied and seems just to garner media attention.
Advice to Senior Management – Spend time with your underlings. Realize that many of your yes man are basically full of bs.
Pros – The Chicago office Team was very understanding and cooperative
Cons – Integrity and honesty did not pay here
Advice to Senior Management – company should give opportunity to the staff to express what his / her feels when u listen give time and monitor what is right instead of discussing it with the immediate boss. In India the boss is powerful to manipulate and misuse the weaker ones.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Advice to Senior Management – Decide if you're going to keep the company going or sell it off entirely.
