    Pros

    - fun people to work with
    - nice salary and bonus
    - quality support staff
    - great number of benefits

    Cons

    - direction of the company unclear
    - seniority sometimes weighed more than quality when advancements were decided
    - poor communication from management

    Advice to Management

    There is really not much feedback one could leave to Clark Consulting management. The nail is in the coffin unfortunately.

  8. Very good place to work, but can be tedious at times.

    Pros

    Culture of the company is very good, good group of people to work with. Work scheduling isn't overly demanding and as long as you do your job, you won't be scrutinized.

    Cons

    The direction of the company was never very clear, mainly based on the uncertainty of the industry. Not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    flexible hours, great people, many long term employees

    Cons

    Management seemed at odds which each other at time and offered little or poor communication, went from a flat, across the board bonus plan to a staggered one that was a slap in the face for the lower tier workers

    Advice to Management

    It's too late now.

  10. WAS a great place to work. Too bad it's closing

    Pros

    Great job. Great pay. Great benefits. blah.

    Cons

    CFO didn't seem to manage what was going on very well.

    Advice to Management

    AEGON, let someone purchase the freakin' place.

    Pros

    Small company, family friendly. People genuinely loved working there, sense of collaboration across the board, summer hours, employees well taken care of, great bonus plan.

    Cons

    Once Rich Chapman left, senior management fell apart almost immediately. Constant reshuffling, people had to re-interview for their jobs, individuals started to slowly leave, many of the original management under Chapman left one by one.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing now since the Bloomington office has shut down. Clark is no longer what it used to be and probably will never be what it once was.
