Pros

Solid management who cared about employees
Great location in downtown Chicago

Cons

Overbuilding causing negative outlook and layoffs
Some of the work was repetitive
Things could get boring sometimes

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think,despite having been laid off, that management has the right strategy to weather the economic outlook. I look forward to possibly being hired back someday.

    Work/Life balance
    Location of HQ

    Cons

    Pay
    Company depends on housing market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of what is left of the actual workers in the company. If your not giving out bonuses/merit increases, don't take them yourselves.
