    Pros

    Lots of software development expertise on tap, company really does seem focused on being a good place to work. Chicago office is cool in appearance. Free lunches. The overall (as in corporation-wide) culture seems to be focused on employee retention. Bonuses are good.

    Cons

    In my small group, the culture was very controlling, and micromanagement was the norm. Never received any appreciation for my contributions. Management is very old school in their attitudes. Physical comings and goings were noted to the minute, and breaks were not allowed. Yes, really, in this day and age. Chicago is a small well in a big company, but it is a poisoned one, at least, for web developers.

    Advice to Management

    Relax! Stop pushing yourselves and your people so hard. Let them take breaks outside the office; a walk down wonders for productivity. The over-controlling and micromanagement leads to a hostile and toxic workplace.

    Pros

    Work-life balance; they are doing a nice job of developing an engaged culture for the broad base of employees and increasing their involvement in the community.

    Cons

    "Good enough" is good enough a lot of the time, when much higher standards could be set, expected and achieved -- there is even negative pushback at times against individuals and groups who are more focused, intense and have a stronger work ethic. Way too much time/value put on polishing people's "personal brand" vs. actually making stuff happen.

    Advice to Management

    Set higher standards and expectations. Get rid of the "personal brand", individualistic mentality and focus on developing, communicating and following a long-term strategy that involves creating top-quality businesses, programs, products focused on customers.
