Good Experience

Team Leader (Current Employee)
Northbrook, IL

Pros- Successful company (growing 20-30% every year) with good job security.
- If you show ability and initiative you will get opportunities to take on more.
- Strong upper management and good people to learn from.
- Company is in constant state of growth and improvement.

Cons- Disappointed that we eliminated the ability to take partial days off...why give people less flexibility?
- Benefits are just ok, definitely not great...though there is a good amount of vacation/flex time off.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe willing to lose money on a transaction in order to keep a customer.
Reinstate partial days off and unpaid time off.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: - employee discount - relatively young and energetic employees Cons: -Nepotism: if you don't belong to a certain clique, you are viewed as an outsider. -being happy/nice is viewed as weakness and you'll be docked for… Advice to Senior Management: Even if I were to give advice, no one would listen… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
