Pros

The potential for creativity is enormous.

Cons

Very young abusive managers with huge egos screaming and yelling all the time. Little praise, lots of screaming and slamming stuff about. Working 12 hours days without breaks and salaried, so no compensation.

Advice to Management

harassment training to the young 20 - 30 something year old managers.

    Pros

    Benefits, perks and all the great people.

    All the cubs tickets and being able to spend much of the summer taking clients to an afternoon Cubs game.

    Cons

    Very hard to get a promotion, very low pay and small yearly increases. Management is blind to the problems around them. Manager's need to work together instead of against each other. Everyone's on the same team working towards the same goals, but no one can get to the finish line.

    Advice to Management

    Look around and have faith in the people you hired.

    Pros

    at least for my smaller business unit, we get out early the days before major holidays, so it's like extra time off.

    Cons

    big company politics, it's easy to disappear as a number sometimes. HR is there for management and not the employee... does not adequately do employee orientations. Gets too settled into something and hard to change from what they're used to. need to do more employee energizing events. more team building exercises.

    Advice to Management

    Recognition for hard work and realistic reviews that don't result in the same status quo pay raises every year... none of the "this is what we do" bull line, if you deserve it, you deserve more than that. doesn't seem to reward performance adequately.
