"Still far behind..."

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Great HQ with nice Cafe in Lake Forest
Work from home on Fridays

Cons

Treats Contractors like some 2nd class citizens. It's slightly common in corporate world but it goes an extra mile here...

No room for new ideas

Squeezing 40-50 people in one room in the name of AGILE

Far behind in IT methodologies and lack of knowledge in what is currently new in the market.

Advice to Management

Get better with treating employees/contractors and they would in turn do better things for company instead of looking for opportunities for jumping out of company.

    Pros

    Benefits, Respect, Mid-range pay, Flex schedule if available

    Cons

    Hard work, Micro-managed, Limited advancement opportunities

    Advice to Management

    When advancement opportunities are present, Management should be looking at employees who are currently at location and who are qualified, before hiring from outside or bringing in someone from another location. This would keep morale up, and current employees would know that they have something to work towards.
