    I have been working at Alfred Benesch & Company full-time

    Pros

    My experience so far has been very positive. The company genuinely tries to be as transparent as possible. Not only is my manager great at what she does, she's also very patient and focuses on providing positive feedback. The company really cares about professional development. Diverse group of people in the Chicago office.

    Above-average benefits like tuition reimbursement assistance, HSA contribution, flexible spending accounts, flexible work options, a wellness program with attractive incentives and paid parental leave. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Elevators.

    Though talking is certainly not discouraged, office can be a little quiet sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    If we could have a few more paid holidays (e.g. the day after Thanksgiving, the day before Christmas), that would be GREAT!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alfred Benesch & Company (Manhattan, KS) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The best interview I have ever had. The organization gave all 30 candidates an equal opportunity to meet with all, and they actually seemed very interested in me. I enjoyed every second of it, learned a lot about the position and organization, and the fact that they gave all of us an opportunity is very impressive. There weren't any boring questions interviewers usually ask.
