Pros

The gorgeous campus in Riverwoods makes coming to work pretty easy. 25 days PTO to start and working with smart, talented people is great.

Cons

Very heavy on hierarchy - getting a decision made is not an easy ordeal - one must go through a LOT of layers to achieve simple tasks.

Advice to Management

Flatten out the organization. We are actually not a huge company at the HQ level yet there are currently 6 layers between me and the President/CEO (and I'm supposed to be in the middle?).

    Pros

    Benefits are good, especially Paid Time Off program (instead of separate vacation/sick/personal days). Office facilities are very nice. Company culture very friendly, welcoming.

    Cons

    Many employees are allowed to underperform, making life more difficult for those who are working hard. Far north suburban location very inconvenient for people living in the city of Chicago or the western or southern suburbs.

    Advice to Management

    none
