Decent company, but going through lots of changes.

Middle Management (Current Employee) Naperville, IL

ProsSome flexibility with flexible work schedules. Decent career opportunities with a lot of options. Company is starting to be more innovative.

ConsCorporate culture is kind of stressful. Work life balance is really hard to find as employees are just expected to work all of the time.

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