    Continue to hire well and communicate the vision to the employees. Maintain the culture as the growth continues. It really feels like we are building a special team.

    Great people and they've really kept the culture intact as they continue to grow. Also, they're not afraid to spend money for a cause they are interested and treat they're employees very well.

    Cons

    Personal growth opportunities are limited and the work can become somewhat dull at times as an analyst.

Great energy in the practices given continued addition of talented resources. Really feel like we're building something special.

    Chicago office space is cramped due to rapid growth; but a planned office move next year should solve this.

    Pros

    Very collaborative and the leadership actually cares about the development of the people. People are given a high level of autonomy and responsibility.

    Cons

    Not much to add here. I enjoy my job and look forward to seeing the company. If anything the company is going through growth pains with adding a significant number of people.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you continue to keep the company's value in the forefront of decisions.
