    Pros

    Good life-work balance. Challenging projects. The people who work there are highly capable and want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    In the effort to address issues and defects often additional processes are introduced that create unforeseen complexities. The result is that it can be difficult to progress work at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on reducing complexity by challenging new projects / processes to ensure that they are truly value adding.

    Pros

    The strong team building that is due to the underlaying manager that pushes the employees to take iniatives and report actions that are not normal dyring daily activities

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are top-notch. People are smart and mostly nice to work with. Location in Chicago is terrific.

    Devolve decision making to local management.
