Decent place, especially if you're starting out, but not so great for someone with experience.

(Current Employee) Chicago, IL

Pros-Decent benefits, perks, and salary.
-Free iPad.
-3 monitors at work (2x 23" 1080p secondaries, 1x 30" 2560x1600 primary).
-18 days of vacation.
-5 days of vacation can be sold back to the company every year.
-Day after Thanksgiving and week between Christmas and New Years are company holidays.
-Free lunch once a month. Soda/juice/coffee/water always free.
-Business is growing and making money.
-Good company values.
-Good company culture.
-No pressure to attend happy hours, parties, or to donate to x-y-z causes.

Cons-CEO not willing to have work from home options, EVER.
-Sick days come out of your 18 days of vacation.
-No work / life balance, especially if you commute from the suburbs.
-Lots of young, inexperienced employees.
-Annoying QA manager that consumes peoples' work hours.
-No real career paths.
-You won't really learn much if you already have several years of experience; not much to put on resume.

Advice to Senior Management-Embrace change and ideas from everyone, don't just fire them because they don't meet your wishes.
-Empower the managers so their direct reports have more freedom.
-Allow work-from-home options!!!!

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