Pros

Very dynamic marketplace. It is constantly changing and keeps you on your toes. Most of the people are great.
Great bonus program!

Cons

-Lower than average pay.
-A lot is expected from management without any gratitude.
- Many things are secretive and you are kept out of the loop.

    Pros

    The benefits and vacation time are adequate.

    Cons

    Management has created a tense work environment in the new building we moved to in Westchester, IL. A lot of employees feel worried due to the two rounds of layoffs we received in the last seven months. There's no growth for employees and I see no silver lining in the future here. I hope the upper managers wake up to the fact that half of the accounting/finance department is desperately looking for new jobs elsewhere. Some of us had to pick up new job duties due to the layoffs and our pay is still the same.

    Advice to Management

    You need to seriously improve the environment for office workers. There is no work-life balance and I feel like there is no room for advancement. A lot of good workers are unable to climb higher and managers are unapproachable about the subject. Also, the new building is pathetic. I feel cramped and it's noisier now with the open floor plan.
