Pros

They have great benefits. They reinvest in their employees very well. continuous training. Pay is OK, not great. Plenty of product knowledge. Relocation is an option.

Cons

Some micro management. Not enough vacation time for employees. Hard to move up. They do not offer educational advancement above a bachelors degree.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow some flexibility to associates. More vacation time and team based activities to boost employee moral. Leadership is a great asset at this company. Allow for educational assistance for MBA degrees.

    I worked at Fort Dearborn

    Pros

    The pay was actually fair, some of the equipment was ok.

    Cons

    Zero sick time, catty co-workers, changing policies on the fly, whenever requesting help of any sort - it was always denied, incompetent higher management, incompetent HR, inflexibility, being evasive & dishonest in regards to company accounts (IE not letting the clients know that their competitors were also clients) and the rants from the CEO in the quarterly meetings. The 'core' values were always just spewed like a tape recording - 'customer intimacy' in particular was not only annoying, but completely hypocritical. The constant patting-himself-on-the-back about reinvesting in the employees was a joke. There was always a caveat or excuse why they couldn't offer training, or if you did want to proceed with Educational reimbursement, it had a catch to it (IE, you would be locked into a 5 year commitment as an employee, and going beyond a bachelor's degree was never an option).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to the customers as well as the employees.

    I have been working at Fort Dearborn full-time

    Pros

    I show up, do my best, and leave on time. Management is relaxed and understanding. Excellent opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    Projects tend to get delayed due to issues that could have been resolved weeks before. Some equipment is dated and in need of maintenance, but management is more focused on production. Less proactive, more reactive...
