    This is a great company to work for!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is ample room for growth and the company seems to really respect work-life balance. The work is challenging but rewarding and the leadership seems very interested in growing their people.

    ConsSo far I haven't really experienced any major challenges. The company seems to be experiencing a good bit of growth so I expect to see a few minor growing pains in the near future but nothing I would consider out of the ordinary.

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

    Great place to learn from great people

    Benefits Implementation Manager (Former Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsEnjoyed the flexibility. Opportunities were consistently available to those seeking. Client experiences often times were enjoyable, yet challenging.

    ConsA lot of work expected with lots of hours for nearly everyone. Becomes very stressful during fall season making PTO challenging around holidays. Constantly restructuring making it difficult to settle in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a structure that works and stick with it. Else you will be lapsed by competition because to much time is wasted on re-organizing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
