Technical Analyst (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsThe environment is a great place to work, very laid back. From a technical perspective it's an open playground to mature your skills.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove your hiring practice. Create a new employee retention program to keep your skilled individuals in-house long-term.
