Not horrible, but not great.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsSalary very good. Not one complaint since I got here.
Health insurance good (don't pick the company choice though; go PPO)
PTO comparable to other places
Flex time fine
Telecommuting fine
I like what I do and for the most part, my coworkers

ConsMajority of sr. management has been here over 20 years and they are deaf to change. The company needs an overhaul of anyone who is a VP and been here over 10 years.
We are so far behind in technology, thinking, output.
Huge waste of money always happening. Most national programs fail.
Too much red tape to get things approved.
More politics than Washington. If you're a favorite, then you're in. If you're good but unrecognized, forget it. You'll never move up. We have mid level people here for over 13 years and they've never been promoted to sr. level.
High turnover in our division. Gee, I wonder why.
They promote the wrong people as managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor those who've been there over 15 years, especially sr. management, please leave. You're ruining the company.
