Pros

Good pay, very laid back, low stress

Cons

No competition, very little initiative on process improvement. Diversity, Ethics, and Compliance awareness shoved down your throat and drilled into your head. Lots of micro-management... old-school management structure.. senior < lead < supervisor < manager, etc... A lot of employees seem to do only what it takes to get by, and fail to learn new technologies and move ahead..

Advice to Management

Stop it with the "Be Ethical" messages, the "Be Compliannt" messages.. if you feel that you need to TELL your employees to be ethical and comply with policies.. why were they hired in the first place? Encourage some outside of the box thinking, don't be afreaid to take some risks, the payoffs may be worth it.

    Pros

    Hours are flexible -- easy to balance family and work, can work from home as necessary. Maternity leave is good -- 80% coverage with 6-8 weeks off, can take more without pay. Senior management promotes a strong ethical culture. Future looks bright. Bonuses are good.

    Cons

    Strong ethical culture is promoted by senior leadership-- but not sure how much it gets down to the individual employee level or even 1st level management. People tend to get promoted for length of employment rather than actual skill -- this can cause some managers to be in positions they may not have to skills to be successful. There's overall a sense of promoting incompetent people, just choosing from the best of the pool rather than going outside the company when there really are no suitable candidates avaialable.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management makes a point to make sure everyone receives recognition -- I think sometimes this goes too far -- and some people not deserving receive recognition/ rewards. Promote fairness rather than trying to make everyone happiness. In the long run, this may work out better.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Dedicated to their employees, a diverse workforce, and providing the best health care possible. Over they years I have found my leadership to be supportive and collaborative in my goals. We have worked together to develop a relationship that allows for continued growth. Provides excellent customer service to both customers and employees. Invests in employees to provide engaging, comfortable work environments.

    Cool HQ building in downtown Chicago.

    Nice Wellness Rewards program.

    Cons

    Can overwhelm you with corporate red tape. Often times great ideas were not implemented because "we cannot do that here".

    Processes can get in the way of innovation.

    Not a leading edge company, or even a fast follower. Waits to react to market changes.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more freedom for your talented employees to be creative.
