Pros

Resume builder if you are new to job market, H1b visa sponsorship, Chicago downtown office, Friday morning breakfast, Good view of Millennium park

Cons

Politics and more politics, erratic decision making, Unprofessional behavior by middle management towards their subordinates, Quick hire and fire policy, Repetitive work, Long hours, Disproportionate pay compared to amount of work required, Incoherent training for new hires, Poor feedback to employees regarding their performance, So-called senior management consists of people who have no prior industry experience and have been bred in this company alone thus they have no professional managerial skills, Career growth is only limited to job titles you will be doing the same work, Sycophancy is the only way to survive in this organization, Future of the company is doubtful since as soon as a bigger competitor inculcates the features of Strata Jazz into their product this company will collapse, Absolutely no scope for suggesting improvements, No effort or vision in the direction of diversifying client base or industry application

Advice to Management

Large scale improvements in the culture and business style will have to be made otherwise this company has bleak future.

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with some very intelligent and driven people. The company allocated appropriate funds to technology.

    Cons

    Management was a closed box. Managerial level decision would be made that directly affected the operation of the company with zero notice to employees. If employees did not agree 100% with management then they were not allowed into the "inner circle". Management sought yes men/women and did not like to be challenged.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open regarding what is going on within the company. Inform employees of company decisions, why they are made etc.

    Pros

    I love my coworkers -- I really enjoy the work --- I like the pace and the challenge of it all...

    Cons

    I would only say that it is sometimes hard to keep up with the knowledge that I have to to stay at the top of my game...

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see fewer releases of the software per year. I think we could build more features into each release and release fewer builds -- and have a more productive experience.
