    I have been working at Fort Dearborn full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fort Dearborn is a fast paced, ever changing environment. Hard work is rewarded and new opportunities often present themselves. The dedication and comradery of associates is what sets us apart.

    Cons

    It seems that as we've grown as a company, we haven't always staffed accordingly. Adding staff to struggling departments would be beneficial.

    Advice to Management

    Make people feel appreciated and they will deliver results.

    The hiring process is usually conducted on one weekend where prospective candidates will come and spend the day at the corporate office.
