    Great experience!

    Intern (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsRelaxed workplace gives me plenty of time to get things done and feel comfortable asking for more responsibilities. Open environment makes it easy to meet others in my department

    ConsLimited time working with others--mostly on the computer with "busy work." Few exciting opportunities or projects. Only intern in my department doesn't allow me to meet others

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is working on intern housing, which would be great! General overview of what interns can be responsible for could help all departments

    doesn't value independent thinkers

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    Proscompany is enhancing the organization's infrastructure - some flexibility for work - life balance. Nice people for the most part.

    Consthe company promotes people who aren't ready for promotions and then they don't receive training..so the blind leads the blind. overly concerned about the wrong things... too busy worrying about covering and justifying the work - which takes more time away from being able to get the work done.... too much reporting and "cya".... lack of entrepreneurial spirit and encouragement to think outside the box...

    Advice to Senior Managementtrain your new managers to be managers. support the people who don't fit the cookie cutter mold and listen to their ideas as well. as employees age - value them - don't cast them aside.

    Disappointing!

    Analyst (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThere some really smart people with immense talent working in this company. Unfortunately they are the ones who take all the burden too.

    ConsManagement!
    The management starting from managers to the upper management have zero concerns for employee satisfaction and appreciation. There is no appreciation for people who work hard. Managers do not care about motivation, instead use micro-management to get things done.

    There is no sense of team work, the work is highly fragmented. They simply do not care about team building, the only team building activity I know is the team lunch for Christmas or when some is leaving the team !

    They make sure you work more than your role demands of constantly micro managing each aspect and finally when it time for a raise they give the cliche response of "you worked hard but the company didn't have a strong quarter lately".

    Really?! You have millions to pay for the upper management but cannot afford to give the employees a descent raise ?!

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut your money where your mouth is!

    TU is lost in transition for the past 2 years

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGood people, good work life balance. 19 days of vacation.

    ConsThere have been so many changes in management and team structures, it's hard to keep truck. It's a mess with no structure and no direction. Many high level positions are filled with people who have no idea what they are doing. Multiple teams that are doing the same thing but using different technologies. The culture is of finger pointing and talking rather then doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop making excuses for your self and take responsibility for leading the company in the wrong direction. And decide on a direction! no project will ever be done if people rotate in and out and managers change strategy every other month.

    Upper Management has aggressive goals to achieve but no clear plan how to achieve them.

    Associate Product Manager (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    Pros- People.
    - Work from home (depending on who your director is)
    - Close to transportation.

    Cons- Upper management lacks transparency and has put forth aggressive goals to achieve but no clear plan on how to achieve them with lack of resources and support which creates disengagement among employees.
    - Lots of people leaving due to extreme change in management. Overhead one director telling an employee that they if they don't like the new direction of the company then maybe they this is not the company for them.
    - Lack of communication from upper management.
    - Technology is not up to date.
    - Everyone can see the writing on the wall that the company is getting ready to sell based on recent cut backs and lay offs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate and be honest with your employees.

    Company is trying to succeed

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsStrong business model that allows the company to sustain profitability. Executive are trying to strengthen company with strategic investments to diversify base. Good benefits with 401K match and an annual discretionary company contribution to retirement account.

    ConsCompany is middle of transition, and private equity owners are only focused on financial gains. Executive team seems to be only paying lip service to other things like job satisfaction, work/life balance, and professional development.
