    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    A highly collegial environment where you look forward to engaging with your co-workers. There are tons of interesting initiatives going on all the time - makes you feel proud to work for a company that is on the leading edge in its industry. There are loads of social activities - happy hours, holiday parties, and volunteer events, etc - if that's your thing. If not, you don't feel pressured to join.

    Cons

    While there are opportunities for professional development, the size of the company naturally limits the potential for upward mobility beyond a certain level. It's not to say that people don't get promoted -- they do - but in some areas of the company there are too few spots coveted by many people.

    Become more involved in the day to day activities of departments, often times questions are being asked on important issues that senior management seems to have no knowledge of. Make sure employees who are working above and beyond their positions are recognized.
