    Prosgreat people - supportive and sociable;

    very well structured internship - permanent clear guidelines from HR department, i.e. you always know what you have to do and why you are doing this

    High turnover

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsMedical insurance paid for by Evraz along with other benefits such as wellness $300/year, fruit day once a week, and jeans on Fridays

    ConsCorporate values are well thought out but unfortunately not followed by the organization. Given the tough business conditions the environment is unpleasant with a big focus on short term goals over long term business focus. There is so much turnover (1/2 people a week quitting) which makes for an uneasy work atmosphere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFollow or scrap the company values.

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

    Run From This Place Don't Walk

    Treasury (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsInsurance first day - great views of the city

    ConsLooking for a place to have long lasting coworkers or retire from? This is not the place for you - looking for a place to work one day and be laidoff the next week? This IS the place for you? Management has no clue what they are doing or how bad the morale is as a matter of fact they don't even look or talk to you if you are not in their circle. Outdated accounting systems and the IT department can't help you either since they are walking around the office all day long talking to other people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove back to Portland

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

    Don't risk your career by working here

    Administrative (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat views of the lake and city
    Decent benefits

    ConsThey provide a facade that there is upward mobility, but there is not. You are "pigeon-holed" from Day 1! The turnover rate is so high that there is no continuity, no friendliness amongst co-workers, and it feeds into just an overall "cold" atmosphere. Senior management repeatedly let down workers with broken promises. Work/life balance for certain positions was simply atrocious; upper management had no problem making people work during their "vacation." In particular, my manager was the most hypocritical manager I've ever had in my career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnd the hypocrisy, provide transparency/keep people informed, and give people there a reason to want to get out of bed every morning. Make Sean Deeson move back to Michigan; that guy is a real piece of work.

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

    By and large the worst company I have ever worked for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsGood health care benefits
    Nice view of Lake Michigan

    ConsHorrible work/life balance
    There are politics at every company, but the worst I've ever seen in corporate America
    When they aren't firing people on a regular basis, the turnover rate is increasing at an insae rate
    Very little growth opportunities
    No financial systems whatsoever, all of the financials are linked together with unreliable Excel files
    Base salary used to be competitive with market but now below average
    Used to have really great bonuses, but now based almost entirely on the performance of the company, which has really taken a turn for the worse
    Upper management blames product group leaders instead of working together as a team to improve down market conditions

    Advice to Senior Management1. Replace upper management
    2. Focus on providing employees with work/life balance or compensation for excessive hours
    3. Financial System that works- hire an outside IT company to help implement the system
    4. Overall culture needs to be addressed (people shouldn't feel like everyday they walk in someone is quitting or getting fired)

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

    Great company to work at.

    Lead Corporate Reporting Specialist (Current Employee)
    Moscow (Russia)
