    Current Employee - Leading Sports Project Manager in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at HKS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exciting projects and knowledgeable staff.

    Cons

    Pay is low, with bonus structure that is supposed to make up for it. Some years it does, some years it doesn't. Health benefits are bad. Very high deductibles and out of pocket costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the pay structure and health benefits to be more like those of your competition.
