The environment is structured. This is one of the least un-chaotic places I've worked in my 20 years of working in IT. The benefits and salary are quite competitive. There's a great work/home balance.
Well, there's no plastic-ware in the cafeteria for people to use but that's about it.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work. I like that there is lots of transparency and what the company's vision for the future is.

I applied through college or university. The process took a day – interviewed at Fort Dearborn (Elk Grove, IL) in November 2012.
The hiring process is usually conducted on one weekend where prospective candidates will come and spend the day at the corporate office. Here they will receive a tour of the facility and also have 4 interviews with Sr MGMT. The interviews are based on high school accomplishments, college accomplishments, future goals, strengths and weaknesses.
