Decent - Not Great

Corp HQ Employee (Current Employee) Itasca, IL

ProsFlexibility is good - but is greatly dependent on your manager.
Raises have remained at at least 3% - even in sour economy.
If you work hard, you will have the chance to move up - just not very fast.

ConsLike anyplace lately - theme is do more with less. Staffs are lean and budgets never go up - but rather down.
Innovation is not something that occurs here. Slow to market, slow to innovate.
Silo'd - new executives have done little to change this - if anything, it is worse than in years past.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe willing to spend money on technology - both for employees and for client facing products. Its 2013 not 1996.

Realize you can only become so lean before morale and loyalty go out the window.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
