    Making an impact everyday!

    Recruiter (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsLove the benefits, career opportunities and ability interact with leadership across all areas of the organization. Our team takes calculated risks and continues to improve in bringing our entire team along for the journey. We're also becoming a more global organization within our function which is exciting!

    ConsResources are spread very thin and I've seen members of the team burn out / walk away from great opportunities in the name of having a better work-life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe consistent in the experiences and opportunities given to team members across all levels and areas of the organization.

    Back stabbing culture, strategy changes weekly.

    Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGood salary and great location.

    ConsTerrible work culture, all about ME, no team work, everyone is stepping on others to get ahead. There is no collaboration in the true sense of the word. A ton of deck writing and not much actual work gets done here. The gng team is the worst if all. Many have left that group - so beware of those who want to join. It hurts your career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your act together. Foster a better work environment.
