Forget advancement, this is a paycheck for newly grads

Credit and Collections (Current Employee) Niles, IL

Prosgood benefits, salary ok , profit sharing

ConsSupervisors are in only for what they can get for themselves, they don't care about anyone else. They tend to favor those who had been there longer. New ideas are only heard if it's the people they like. Too much favoritism. Zero promotion. I don't recommend this company unless you are looking for another paycheck. ah, there is no flexibility for life/work either.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo many layers of managment are useless and give zero visibility to the valuable people that does the work. Then you wonder why ratings are low at this location. Employees have low morale due to zero advancement

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
