    Pros

    Great place to start out at the beginning of your career. Will teach you the sink or swim mentality. As well as Evolve or Perish. Introduction to a variety of skills. You will have no other choice but to wear many hats. You will gain great experience managing a variety of accounts and people.

    Cons

    Unreal work environment and expectations. Really High Turn over. Survival of the fittest, and whoever is the best at politics. No real management or leadership. You are setup to fail. You are payed pennies on the dollar but promised the world. Also, the world's worst benefits & time off policies. Not a team environment. Once you learn everything you can, which is generally within 6 months. There is nowhere to go, job will not change, monotony and complacency become the accepted norm day in and day out. Recognition is seldom given. If possible work for this company Aurora, Illinois and things will be completely different.

    A poor place to work long-term due to no career advancement and low pay with outrageously high expectations.

    Pros

    It is a nice place to start out. You will meet many great people, learn how things work, and observe a lot about the culture. You will gain valuable experience on many projects and interact with a diverse surrounding. The benefits are decent and depending on the immediate people around you, it can be a very fun atmosphere. If you join a department with a great Director or VP, you will love it.

    Cons

    With the workload you are given, you will likely put in much overtime without recognition or appreciation. Turnover overall is pretty high. The medical insurance is high. Some department heads play favorites and target those they don't like by setting them up to fail. Sometimes you will witness the worst disrespect you can imagine in a workplace, and the higher paid individual will get away with it. If you are not a favorite, your suggestions for anything will not matter, even if it could help the company. The values are a joke only because they are not followed and preached by some who are hypocrites.
