    Not as good as it used to be.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Springfield, IL

    ProsGood pay, good benefits.
    Many good people work there.
    Onsite health facility.

    ConsBenefits have been cut over the last 10 years, possibly to subsidize divisions that don't produce revenue.
    Management is firmly entrenched, little opportunity for career advancement, resistant to change.

    Worst Managed Company I've Worked For

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Springfield, IL

    ProsSome of the nicest people I've worked for and will remain friends with most everyone I worked with there.
    They compensated me well.
    Private jet travel.
    On site swimming pool and gym.
    Sponsor an NHRA Funny Car Driver who is the absolute nicest guy in the world.

    ConsDon't understand the words synergy or how to work together.
    Each group is its own silo and every group with the exception of Education Services refuses to work with the other groups.
    Could double or triple their sales if they had someone who encouraged the groups to work together and present a unified front.
    One group sold IBM hardware and software but all the other groups used Dell and Microsoft.

    Advice to Senior ManagementForce your groups to work with each other. Unbelievable how simple this one thing would lead to increased sales and a more cohesive company. Creating individual silos of business lines will eventually lead to none of them reaching their full potential.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Over worked for minimum pay

    Recruiter (Former Employee) Springfield, IL

    ProsGreat perks: gym, pool, cafeteria

    ConsCompany puts more emphasis on material things and money and minimum investment with employees. Staff level positions pays manager’s paychecks through commissions while manager level employees enjoy the good life such as travel and leisure with company time and money. Little to know advancement within company, moderate pay scale. Some managers and supervisors screamed at employees and talked down to them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMangers/owerner: You should definitely consider to improve your manager's demeanor/behavior and leadership/communication style.
