  1.  

    Terrible Place to Work

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    The pay is decent as well as company benefits. Another plus is that they are finally starting the process of modernizing their technology.

    Cons

    Does not appear to be a company that offers advancement - many employees in same career for years, lack of training or quality training. People seem bored with their jobs and in my former role, it was not challenging at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline processes and you can cut back on many expenses and employees/departments, provide adequate and quality training to new employees, be more straight-forward and learn how to communicate effectively with employees - learn how to attract and retain employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Good name brand recognition
    Convienant downtown location in Chicago for corporate headquarters
    Solid work/life balance

    Cons

    Below market value for salary compensation and bonuses
    Many employees work in tunnel vision
    Outdated processes and systems.
    No crossfunctional teamwork. There is a "us against all other departments mentality"
    Poor communication with other departments on all projects on all levels.
    No desire for root cause analysis on issue resolution. Company culture is to bandaid the issue and then point fingers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve cross functionality within the company

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO
