    Pros

    Laid back casual environment in a great location in Streeterville. Generous benefits and tuition assistance when you are a permanent employee.

    Cons

    Management had no idea what the employees were doing. Co-worker spent 8 hours a day on FaceBook and doing her homework. No one seemed to care because she was cute and bubbly. This had been going on for years. When she was called on this by a co-worker, she got the woman fired.

    Advice to Management

    You can't effectively manage someone from another campus/location.


  2. "Poor management of Alumni Relations"
