    It might have been a good place to work 10 years ago, but not anymore.

    Pros

    - Slightly better than industry average pay and benefits - Could be considered a stable place to work for some, but this may change due to the acquisition by Aon

    Cons

    - No transparency from leadership - Flat team structures with little to no opportunities for growth - Clueless team management with a hands-off approach - Untrained, ill equipped project leads are thrown in to projects with no clear direction - Workloads have more than doubled since the acquisition and associates are not compensated for overtime - Difficult to reach office location in the far Northern suburbs - Working strange hours and twice as hard to communicate with the associates in India (which represent 1/3 of the company) - It seems that associates who have been there for any significant amount of time aspire to nothing more than finding new ways to do less and less actual work

    Advice to Management

    Train your team leads and associate managers, or better yet, hire ones who are qualified. Each and every one that I worked with were utterly lazy and incompetent.


  2. Great experience in helping me get my foot in the door based on my college field (BA in MIS)

    Pros

    -Great comradery -offers competitive benefits (half price on profit shares, 6% 401k, etc.) -Strong leadership that keeps employees informed of the direction the business is going.

    Cons

    -the opportunity of growth seems very minimal in my department -the salary is not very competitive with other companies. I am a pay band 3 (40K) and after three and a half years, only at 45k
