    A company culture like this comes along once in a lifetime.

    Human Resources (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe values and behaviors linked to the culture are alive an well w/in the people there - no matter what geography or function.

    ConsCritical limited resources and high expectations can result in added stress. On the up-side the people are wonderful to work with and there is definitely great team work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are a lot of new leaders in the organization since I left so, I guess I would just encourage them to keep the dynamic culture alive and well. It is a differentiator that should be protected and sustained.
