    I worked at ABN AMRO

    Pros

    Good management strategy, things get done quickly and efficiently. They treat everyone like family and make you feel like you're at home.

    Cons

    The company culture is "old". Not many young people in the office, and not many young people activities either.

    Cons

    Lack of interesting technical challenges for most of the software developers. The teams in Chicago are very small and new challenges tend to be given to team members with long tenure. High turnover and lack of any technical direction from senior management.
