Hard work for low pay

Software Developer (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsIt is a large and diverse company with many opportunities. Depending on the division, the work can be very challenging and rewarding. It will almost always be a good resume builder.

ConsThe company was taken private in an LBO in 2005. Since then they have struggled with debt repayment and finances are very tight. No matter how much money the company makes, it isn't enough. Employees will be given small raises, little to no bonuses, and told to keep all expenses to a minimum.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are not as dumb and naive as you think they are.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
