Current Employee - Talent Acquisition in Buffalo Grove, IL
Current Employee - Talent Acquisition in Buffalo Grove, IL
Approves of CEO

Pros

Strong brand recognition.
Respected global employer.
Technically innovative company.
Advocacy for a virtual workforce model.
Employees are required to be versatile and function at a high level of performance. Creates a well rounded skill set or "tool box" for other future opportunities.

Cons

"Head down and do your job" culture.
Sterile work environment.
"Wait in line" mentality for career progression.
Average compensation compared to other similar size orgs.

Advice to Management

Shift company marketing and branding strategy to a more "employee centric" focus. Start telling the "people story" rather than just focusing on the company products, services & successes. Happy, talented, successful people can help to bring the same into the organization.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I love interacting with our customers and helping them solve their problems. The people are very motivated and creative and the lower levels.

    Cons

    Upper Management does not provide leadership and direction. This is like a big ship floundering in the ocean. This company makes money in spite of them-self.

    Advice to Management

    Open up let your people work with you.
