Pros

The company culture is great. Casual dress, free breakfast on Fridays, great training courses, fun activities like Beach Day, Boat Cruise and company parties. You are expected to work hard but they provide fun activities to reward you.

Cons

The location can make for a tough commute depending on where you live

Advice to Management

Some of the systems being used are old and need to be updated.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    there are none at the moment - continued cuts and layoffs in Marketing division, senior and midlevel managment only interested in protecting themselves and their pets. some IT managment from manager level to director level has never written a line of code in their life! there because either they are pets of sr management or dont pose a threat. if you enjoy working with front line managers who always work from home, or sr management who are proud they never advanced their education past a high school diploma, the place for you.

    Cons

    outdated IT infrastructure which a group of IT staff that still live in the IBM 370 world - a PMO office that frowns on PMP certification or PMBOK practices, would not know Waterfall from Agile practices if you explained it too them. a QA group who has no idea testing plans, tools, or metric comparisons. great place to work if like being overworked because your capable at your job while your cube mate surfs the web all day - like living under threats daily by management, see capable people let go while while dating partners and roomates stay, they place for you

    Advice to Management

    clean out the ranks in a business like manner - 90% of your IT people are useless, expeically in Lincoln and Schaumburg - remove those who have sat on their rumps and done nothing - those with only GED's and no certifications since they started - enforce your no or zero drug tolerance policy - get out of the offices and see what the issues are and who is a true performer, stop listening to the crap front line and mid level management is feeding you protect themselves and their pets.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of different opportunity to do different jobs for one parent company. Flexible with work at home options.

    Cons

    20 sales folks/consultants could call on one strategic account. Experian laid off lots of good sales management with years of service in April 2010. Where is the loyalty?

    Advice to Management

    There are too many people calling on one account. Its confusing to the customer and frustrating to the salesperson.
