Fantasic work-life balance. too many dinosaurs

Software Developer (Current Employee) Glenview, IL

Pros- Work life balance is great. family comes first and its easy to get time off to deal with family matters. When i leave the office I generally don't have to worry about work.
- Nice people to work with.
- Benefits are decent.

Cons- in technology there are a lot of people who have been around a long time (20+ years). They don't seem too interested in moving forward. if you have any interest in doing new things prepare to be frustrated.
- management is haphazard

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you bring in new people to the technology group make sure their voices are heard and not ignored by the old guard.

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