Good Team, Long Hours

Human Resources Consultant (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsWorked with great people
Company takes good care of the team
Frequent perks, food credit, etc.
Great opportunities for advancement

ConsSome projects seem to last forever
Low vacation time, culture of working long hours
Some competition between offices (not excessive)
High turnover

Advice to Senior ManagementImproving the communication between offices would help very much. Also, not sure if this has changed since I was there but file sharing could have been made easier over the network.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
