    Pros

    People are very hard working and care about what they are doing and working on

    Cons

    Upper management don't care about burning out team members as long as they drive up ebitda so they can make fat bonuses and get a huge payday after the company sells. Everything is about short term gains. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Not rewarding people and not caring about the very people that are making you rich is not a good strategy.

    Pros

    Company is growing. The colleagues at the Schaumburg office are great to work with. The work is challenging and gives good experience.

    Cons

    Management micro-manages employees. Advancement is rare. Position titles (in job postings) are misleading to attract "better" talent. There is not much transparency in what management wants from employees. They usually tip-toe around questions regarding salary and future of the company. Work-Life balance is almost nonexistent. Extremely long hours for finance team with no compensation for extra time worked.

    Advice to Management

    Management should pay their current employees better instead of paying new employees larger amounts of money. Reward hard work and time commitments to your company.

    Pros

    - Exposure to lots of projects and senior management. Teams are lean and you can work on cross functional projects if you're willing to raise your hand and to do the work - People are great. Love my team without them some days would be hard to get through - The company is growing very quickly. Have had the ability to influence new processes and fix ones that are broken

    Cons

    - Need more management training. There are a lot of new managers, need training to get to the next step - Hours. They can be long depending on the group, just need more people to get some things done in a more timely manner

    Pros

    - The people are great, it's what has kept me there for as long as I have been. - Although far and few, there is an ability to learn more tasks. - "Business casual" work environment; even though most people are seen wearing blue jeans, tennis shoes and shirts without a collar. - The parking garage, to protect your car from the winter and rainy elements. - No one notices when you take 40-minute breaks away from your desk because your manager and director are face deep in their own work, or have the door closed. So that's neat.

    Cons

    - Absolutely zero perks to the job for the amount of time you'll be putting in: .. The 401Ks have been downgraded (now only matching X% depending on how well the company does) .. a summer bbq and holiday party in the winter that aren't by any means spectacular. .. Media Department isn't allowed to work from home, because the director said she "doesn't work well from home due to distractions", so the entire department doesn't receive this opportunity. .. they allowed us to buy stock in the company, with a *minimum of $10K buy-in*. This came off as elitist and super out of touch as a majority of the office is in their 20-30s. .. you can receive up to 10% of your salary as a yearly bonus, depending on how you, your department and the company does overall.. This sounds great, but the rating scales and payouts are severely inconsistent and the extra thousands post-taxes is hardly enough for the effort put in. - The overall culture is bad; there is a high turnover rate in most departments, with the extra work falling upon other members of your team who are already maxed to capacity. .. Managers and directors are stressed and often come off frantic, which trickle down to those who they manage. .. Most people are talking about leaving, if not already transitioning to a new career. - You'll work hard and won't receive any additional recognition. As well, the ones who aren't working hard and skating by won't be bothered - you'll both be viewed as the same. - Little to no motivation, inspiration or dream from the CEO or your managers. - CEO has made it abundantly apparent he has no desire to invest in resources and tools for employees to do their jobs properly (this would cut into the company profit) - The company is more worried about the bottom line and their ability to resell for profit than paying to keep, reward and/or recognize great talent. - No room for personal growth; they have just now haphazardly created some sort of "growth band chart" that remains confusing and unclear like much of the company - as if this was processed to hush the masses, rather than promote growth. - The laptop you receive is awful, most requiring 15 minute restarts every morning because they have been refurbished to oblivion. Instead of supplying future workers with laptops, they are enacting a "voucher" program to buy your own and will pay a portion - because who doesn't want to have their work and personal laptop on one? -Very little reward for employees that sacrifice way more than they should.

    Advice to Management

    Shift focus to maintaining talent long-term rather than just focusing on the bottom line and your bankroll. With so much turnover (near, if not more, than 20%), it's quite surprising that there has been no change to try to keep quality people happy long-term.
