Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Deer Park, IL
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Deer Park, IL
No opinion of CEO

Pros

The environment of the workplace is casual and majority of the team are generally supportive and willing to help when it gets to the nitty gritty of work. Interesting projects to work on that typically are about a year long. Requesting time off is not difficult. Work offers garage parking - a nice bonus in the snowy Chicagoland area and there is shuttle service available to ride trains.

Cons

Salary is not competitive. No defined career ladder or room for growth in the engineering dept. Deliverables are often tight schedule. Software quality processes are too focused on numbers, which does not necessarily reflect the quality of the software, but will impact schedules because of "paperwork".

Advice to Management

More room/more definition of growth. Salaries need to be closer to industry average in order to be competitive with other software related fields to maintain headcount.
