    Pros

    The work is steady and the co-workers are (for the most part) pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Communication is poor, the company's executives and upper management do not understand very fundamental parts of their own company, and depending on the department, there is little to no positive feedback given, ever.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't understand how a major part of your own company works, if you're incapable of performing even the most basics tasks in subordinate but absolutely ESSENTIAL positions, you are failing as a manager. People who lack understanding lack compassion and critical thinking; neither of those are things anyone, let along those in Management, should be lacking in life.

  3. Great company with lots of room for growth of young employees.

    Pros

    Company culture is one of growth and opportunity. You control your own destiny by working hard. Leadership team is constantly looking to develop young talent.

    Cons

    With so many employees across the world, salaries are not too competitive. Growth past mid-level management takes years of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Be less concerned about controlling costs and more about growing the business. Personnel are stretched very thin.

    Pros

    You get to set your own schedule in reference to which accounts you service each day.

    Cons

    Local management could not be trusted, and was unorganized.

    Hopefully they have improved by now. Just be honest when you are interviewing prospective employees.

    Pros

    Decent Pay and benefits. Good workout, always busy.

    Cons

    Overworked and long hours; typical day you start around 4am and do not get home until about 6-7pm. Also you are constantly outside working, therefore the weather in chicago is not helpful.
    No room for movement

    Advice to Management

    Shorten the hours or offer more pay. The long extreme hours are unfair.

  10. Great competitive work environment
