    Current Employee - Systems Analyst/Programmer in Evanston, IL

    Pros

    Great 403b contribution, good starting salaries, non-technical interview process based on personality.

    Cons

    No direction, No focus, poor mentoring, poor encouragement. Teams are split into as little as 1 or 2 people. Managers are unable to make decisions and stick with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pick a direction and execute. Please empower your employees to feel like the work they do matters. This includes not abandoning initiatives as soon as they are started. There is no need for teams of 1 or 2 people + 1 manager, especially when managers do not get along.
