The best company I've worked for so far

Pros

Very casual and friendly atmosphere
All employees are talented
Ideas and free thinking encouraged
Managers and execs genuinely care about employees.
Really big on promoting from within

Cons

Benefits have been a bit of a roller coaster ride and the cost goes up significantly every year. It pretty much feels like your annual merit increase is lost on the increasing cost of health insurance.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere
    Coworkers are almost all really nice
    Very flexible hours
    Practically no interaction with customers

    Cons

    Management is very young and somewhat immature
    Management plays favorites
    Not many extra hours available unless you are a "pet"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and reward hard work, dedication and integrity. Stop playing favorites. You are missing out on valuable hard workers by surrounding yourselves with kissups rather than the employees who merit recognition.

    Pros

    Fun, cool company to work for! I worked at both a distribution center and at the corporate offices in Skokie. The atmosphere is relaxed and everyone really gets along well. The company culture is great and the business model is awesome.

    Cons

    Pay scale was less than it should be for a company backed by a huge conglomerate; this was my only gripe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I felt that the senior management did a great job. There were a few vice presidents I worked under during my tenure that needed to go and eventually senior management saw this and they were were let go. I left only because I did not feel I was being paid highly enough for the education and experience I had.
