Forte Group – Why Work With Us?


Forte Group began with an idea focused on quality. That idea sparked another: to be a bridge between people and technology. From that idea grew the understanding that supreme quality and talented people could build great software, but without a vision or means to get there, true value would never be recognized.

Everyone has their own story to tell, their own journey to take, and their own path to get there. At Forte Group, we make the path easier. We remove the common obstacles from getting from Point A to Point B. A smoother road. An engine to accelerate. A bridge between people and technology. A pathway to what’s possible.

What’s Your Story? Let us help you get there.

    I have been working at Forte Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Forte offers tremendous autonomy in a diverse, welcoming environment. People here are supportive of each other in helping each other learn and grow as professionals.

    In some of my previous roles, I've observed a "blame culture" where people fear failure rather than experimenting or innovating with new ideas. That risk-aversion doesn't exist here. The atmosphere here is, "Try something new. If it isn't successful, we've learned something and can move on to our next idea." That's a refreshing atmosphere that I think is unique.

    Forte has brought on several key roles over the last few years. They're growing and there's a feeling of momentum that this is really something special in Chicago.

    Another pro: Over the past year, there have been significant improvements to our benefits and employee experience. These changes were the result of employee feedback.

    Cons

    Most organizations, particularly those in a growth phase, reach a point where processes need to change to support the organization's evolution. Forte has experienced some of these growing pains, but I think leadership listens to honest feedback and wants to progressively make Forte Group an even better place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your people. They're a great bunch and really care about what they do.
