Good company to start your career at

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsGreat benefits but fair pay

ConsVirtually little to no opportunity for advancement. Heavy emphasis on hiring college graduates with little experience. Majorirty of employees are interested in career development, so you have a lot of people around the same age/experience level looking for advancement with little opportunity. If you happen to become a manager, there are virtually no career progression opportunities afterwards. Also, senior management does nothing to require managers to effectively manage and be accountable for morale Quality, development and productivity standards are inconsistent across groups within the company. Training is weak, conducted through occasional external workshops and there are no standards/measurements/consequences for acceptable management standards. As a result, there are some really ineffective managers on the foor impacting employee morale, productivity and creating ineffective processes.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to what is actually happening in each SBU, listen to the employees and appoint true leaders. A good leader isn't one who is skilled in one area, but is well rounded and has demonstrated success in multiple areas, gaining the respect of both their peers and leadership. Reward those who go over and beyond.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
