Amazing This Company is Still Floating

Data Analyst (Former Employee)
University Park, IL

Pros- The employees are generally nice.
- Easy to land a job.
- Good starting point out of school, but get the experience and then get out.

Cons- Upper management is disconnected from the daily workings of the company.
- It is difficult for departments who work together to agree on processes.
- Constant infighting and lack of communication/understanding between departments.
- Lower than average pay.
- High expectation to work extra hours on nights and weekends with no overtime or other compensation.
- Complete lack of rewards for hard working employees.
- Generous helpings of negative feedback for even the slightest issue.
- Complete lack of control over turnover.
- New hires are typically not ready for the job until 6 months of employment and are given zero formal training.
- Sales inflates customer expectations and uses shady sales tactics to close deals.
- Lots of scope creep on projects.
- No concrete timelines or planning on projects.
- No channels for advancement.
- Develops using VB.net.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on building trust and loyalty from your employees. It is clear that no one respects you currently. Your employees are your ticket to success. Pay them well, treat them well, offer more opportunities for advancement instead of filling positions from the outside, and offer rewards for working overtime. You need to embrace younger help. A lot of the company is from an older generation and will be leaving soon. The younger generation will not stay around just because you gave them a job. They will always look for a place that cares about them and shows it.

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