This organization has changed dramatically!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsExcellent work/life balance. Fantastic salaries - definitely within market range. Continually evolving technology - we are definitely using the latest/best practices, tools and techniques. Great location within the city, perfect for commuting.

Cons--- Outsourcing key development positions
--- Trimming stateside head count in dramatic numbers
--- No room for advancement
--- Overall direction is no longer clear
--- Sadly, we are no longer encourging talented people to stay. High turn over ratio within the company
--- No management training - they are moving individuals into management positions that they are completely unqualified for but they are not providing them with the skills [advanced training] to succeed. This driving talented people out of the company to escape bad management. When a stateside employee exits, we replace them with off shores consultants.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease take a fresh look at your management team. Your leaders are no longer fostering a cohesive/collective vision. We no longer seem to be developing to market demands or working to stay competitive within the market place.

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