Former Employee - Project Manager  in  Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Project Manager in Chicago, IL

Pros

- Work life balance
- Pay for contractors
- Able to fund projects without regard to benefit, kept me busy.
- Training program is very good.

Cons

- Process heavy even when it made no sense at all
- Restructuring for the sake of change, I had 4 bosses in 2 years.
- Contractors are told nothing about the company future plans.
- Senior IT Management was not very effective. I never saw a manager challenge another manager from the business.
- Project vetting process is long, weird, and unproductive

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Money was never an object to funding a project. They seem to have a never ending supply of funds. This was the problem actually. A pure cost/benefit should be applied without regard to business pet projects. In a another company these pet project would have been shelved.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Surrounded by good people, supportive of work-life balance, competitive compensation and benefits package

    Cons

    Still working towards being "OneTeam". There's opportunities to consolidate and leverage across the various business units, but everyone is too busy doing their own thing, without a desire to collaborate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communications, all the way down to the front line, particularly for communications pertaining to the state of the business.
