Pros

Salary and benefits are good along with the movie rentals to the employees. The food eveyone brings in is also quite good...

Cons

Micro-management, terrible training, lack of direction from Management Team in the tax department. Unprofessional and juvenille behavior in the tax management team. The gossip and constant loud laughing is quite unprofessional and very distracting. Too many senseless meetings!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Desperate need for a complete overhaul of the tax management team in Oakbrook, IL.

    Pros

    Solid benefit package
    Opportunities to advance
    You get to work with bright people
    Lots of fun company events, such as going out for private movie screenings at a local cinema
    Nice office space to work in

    Cons

    You need to be responsible for your own career, as the company is not strong on helping you to identify a career path
    A little heavy on 'Directors' in the organization: we need fewer bosses and more workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time talking with your employees and letting them know that you recognize their efforts and care about them as employees and as people

    Pros

    The pay is very good compared to the work

    Cons

    The company has no solid direction. There are teams of 12 people with 4 to 5 managers.
    Very HR top heavy. There were at least 3 HR reps for my department of less than 15 people.
    No career advancement. Management and HR talked nonstop about how employees needed a clear career path but when anyone tried to establish a way to make it happen they were shot down in endless meetings.
    To many egos to get anything done. People will completely kill projects simply because they didn't think of it. There is way too much political drama.
    No one wants to take accountability for decisions and employees pay the price.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead your teams. Management tends to step back and be too hands off. There is very little direction and management is often invisible unless something is wrong and then it's just a big exercise in C.Y.A.
