Pros

Good pay & benefits
Building a solid pipeline of products
Nice friendly working environment
Smart people who want to make a difference

Cons

Political organization, need to know what people are saying about you behind your back. If you disagree with direction or ideas you may be seen as a "problem" and not a team player unless you have a mgr who is willing to back you up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more honest with colleagues. If you have a concern, or have issues bring it up and discuss with your employee.
Mgt needs to live the desired culture, not just send out memos and talk about it.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Opportunities to advance. Work from home model increasingly being accepted. Relatively flat organization. Reasonable compensation (not great, but not terrible either).

    Cons

    Shrinking portfolio. Tough financial environment. Layoffs galore. Too many consultants so it's difficult to maintain continuity in projects.

    Current Employee - Quality Assurance Specialist in Skokie, IL

    Pros

    Great benefits: more vacation time than most companies offer.
    Higher salary than other companies
    Interesting work
    If you can prove your worth, easy to move up in the company

    Cons

    Best to negotiate the highest salary before being hired. Otherwise, you'll always be at the low end of the pay scale for the position.
