    has changed a lot in the past 10 years, too much manager bonus focus

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Channahon, IL

    ProsHas been stable, decent benefits,

    Consdepartments stopped working as one goal since departmental manager bonus took over, now each department out for themselves,

    Advice to Senior Managementgo back to a people caring company any quite with the big departmental manager big bonus. employees bonuses very small so the managers can get them. the employees are the ones doing the work

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Upper Management (Current Employee) Channahon, IL

    ProsTime off at Christmas - Some of the staff very nice to work with

    ConsToo much of an us vs them attitude amoung departments, no room for growth unless you meet certain stipulations and are well liked in the company-unfairness in departments - being talked at instead of with - pay is not where it should be and you cannot make more

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive people a fair shot - don't continue to be dishonest with them and dance around the issues/subjects

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Customer Sales Related (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent benefits and good location

    ConsCommunication from upper management to employee needs improvement. Policies for non exempt workers are completely outrageous and set them up to fail. The bottom line is more important that the employee (who gets the bottom line where it is)

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart really working with the pool of talent you have, don't look at age as a reason to make someone retire. Show every employee their worth and be honest about it. You seem to skirt truth a lot.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good benefits, time off at Christmas, decent salary, few opportunities for advancement

    Customer Service Related (Current Employee) Channahon, IL

    ProsGreat benefit options
    Get a week+ off at Christmas every year
    Starting just out of college, the salary was good and have gotten raises almost every year.
    Company is strong financially, rarely has layoffs for non-production personnel

    ConsSome personnel can be unprofessional and difficult to deal with
    Company is concerned 100% with bottom line, not the employees
    Penalized for using sick time, very strict schedule policies
    Seems to be favoritism sometimes

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
