    Very young staff

    Clerk (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat environment, experience, people, benefits

    ConsToo many very young people as clerks. Need to hire a little older staff. Pay more to your Clerks. Salaries are below the average.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to negotiate salaries with your clerks on experience, not just pay a standard salary for that position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Decent job but not much opportunity to advance.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsCompetitve salary
    Excellent Medical Benefits
    Flex-Time
    401K and Profit Sharing
    Floaters readily available when needed
    Good software training
    Jeans Day Every Friday

    ConsLow morale and poor level of communication from management. Gossip runs rampant at this firm. We learn more information about our office from the media than our own management team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more feedback more often on job performance . This is not a congenial work environment. A lot of employees want to find other jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
