    Pros

    Leadership is very accessible Benefits are wonderful especially the health and vacation time Great people you get to work with Career opportunities/growth

    Cons

    work/life balance not always there - well maybe for some but not for everybody recognition is not always there which would be nice now and then

    Advice to Management

    Don't hide everything from the team members - then there is a feeling that something bad may be happening and that may not be the case at all Appreciate the people that you do have before you lose them

    Pros

    Good environment and great leader when they respond.

    Cons

    No real benefits. Everyone seems to be sitting in their own world.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for the little guys. They tend to get big with taken care of.

    Pros

    Good benefits (vacation and 401k).

    Cons

    Joined Infogix as the result of a merger. First year was fine. At the end of the fiscal year when sales quotas were not met, the non sales force were laid off. Seems the sales force should have been the ones replaced.

    Pros

    None, except for the location if you live in the western suburbs. If you are employed and you get into the buddy system there, you will never have to work more than 7 hours a day. Great place for employees that just want to work a short day and leave.

    Cons

    This company is surviving on Mainframe Licenses that are dwindling. Massive cronyism and a large number of clickish toxic employees. They give 1 day notices and turnover is rampant. Quality employees leave. Leaving a lot of narrow minded management. They do not want advice and just want to protect themselves at the cost of the companies responsibilities'. They will pressure contractors to work for free and then blame them for management incompetence. Also, there are toxic employees that will sabotage your reputation for personal gain. They lack real experience of the IT world.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs a massive employment turnover from top to bottom. Get rid of the toxic staff and bust up the crony's buddy system. Your mainframe license will dwindling. There are much better products out there with a talent pool of experienced professional to support....Cognos, Informatica, Ab Initio, SAS, to name the few.

    Pros

    Liberal dress policy, fun people, exposure to broad range of technologies. As a implementation consultant, you have decent pay/prospects.

    Cons

    Simply stated, the India centric cronyism is outrageous here. The hiring process is often cryptic and high level folks push through completely inappropriate candidates. Product development is often focused on product features vs stability. The QA and Doc writing were gutted after the buyout from HIG, with product bug fixes being portrayed as true enhancements in releases. It's pretty embarrassing. Thus, product bugs are rarely addressed in a timely fashion. Revolving door of consultants with no prior experience on the proprietary software.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with the workforce. Company meetings boil down to buzzword blather and rarely do employees feel comfortable asking pertinent questions.

    Pros

    Offer good training for their products. Fresh free bagels and bread from Panera. Free entertainment and drama. They hire all through the year.

    Cons

    Cannot utilize this knowledge anywhere.Terrible decision making by management in hiring and firing employees. This is the only company I encountered in my career which has opening for the same job title all throughout the year. No room for individual growth/contributions nor do they allow to work as a team, their regulations are stubborn than constitution. Management comes up with new strategies and implementation each week with no result. ZERO professionalism.

    Advice to Management

    STOP micromanaging. Make work environment more fluid. Try counting the number of hours invested in interviewing candidates and you will be surprised by the time spent on nothing. Focus on employee retention if possible make a recall of the employees you lost.

    Pros

    Training very extensive and well done, facilities excellent, office environment is quiet, but very friendly. Great experience interacting with C-level contacts. Above average insurance and benefits.

    Cons

    Very competitive marketplace. New business/success hard to come by. Not a lot of room to grow (sales). When I worked there, management stuck there nose in every opportunity, often times not for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees more, read the market trends and be more agile with product development to meet the current demands.

    Pros

    Ok salary and benefits, work life balance.

    Cons

    Lacking strategic direction, particularly in sales. All over the place and this has not been the issue caused with sales leadership, but rather a dictatorial regime imposed by COO with CEO's complacency. On the 3rd SVP of sales in 2 years and don't think its because those SVP's were poor but rather because the COO and CEO think they know what they are doing, but reallly have no solid experience prior to being handed their roles by former owner. Private Equity firm needs to take a hard look at replacing COO and CEO.

    Advice to Management

    HIG needs to fire CEO and COO and get new leadership in place.
