Regular experience, could be better

Developer (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

Pros- Great people
- Office in downtown, with nice view
- Lots of social events
- Good clients for resume
- Typical American company

Cons-Office is open space, sometimes too noisy
-Work is like a consulting for clients, no clients - no work
-Very bad management planning for projects and recourses (people), overtimes for employees
-Not much challenge from technical point of view, all the projects typical and rather simple sites to display/save to DB something
-Work with offshore services in Costa Rica
-Lots of games around projects with Canadian guys (they have offices there), sometimes it's annoying, aka family with top management as parents, and teams as siblings hating each other.

Advice to Senior Management-Improve planning for projects
-Try not to share work among different offices
-Provide employees with performance review on a regular basis

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
