Current Employee - Vice President in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Vice President in Chicago, IL

Approves of CEO

Pros

A dynamic place to work; lots of smart and ambitions people; casual dress code; good benefits; flexibility to balance life and work; convenient office location

Cons

It can be very cliquey, certain managers play obvious favorites, etc. People make quick judgments here and if you don't fit in off the bat then it's nearly impossible to dig yourself out of that hole. The Chicago office's ability to retain diverse staff is appalling (and I define "diverse" very loosely to mean anyone with a background other than a white sorority girl or a gay man).

Advice to Management

Please put some more thought into how to staff people on international assignments -- either short-term projects or even relocation. There seems to be a lot of interest, but word on the street is that it's very ad hoc and personality-driven right now.
