No praise for anybody, minimal increases, low employee moral

Sourcing Specialist (Current Employee)
Lincolnshire, IL

ProsExperience what a public Fortune 500 company is

ConsExperience what a public Fortune 500 company is..stick with thr private sector for sure!
They tout the fact that they were ranked in Chicagos to 100 places to work ??? Who rated them that?? Nobody I know.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you work your people like horses, never saying they do a decent job only telling them how much better they could be, giving paltry raises out, then don't wonder why the moral is so low in the building.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
