    I worked at Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund full-time

    Pros

    Nice hours: 8:30 - 4:30. Decent pay. Time off is typical - 10 holidays with 2 weeks vacation to start.

    Cons

    - Poor training
    - Management lacks leadership ability
    - Management assumes you're at fault if another co-worker complains about you, so you better stay on everyone's good side.
    - Too many pension plans with different stipulations to memorize. The plans should be consolidated to reduce both confusion for the participants and the costs to the municipalities that pay into the fund - although this is the state's fault.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assume someone is in the wrong simply because another employee complains about that person. There are two sides to every situation, and just because one employee goes to you first doesn't mean they're the one who's right.

    Pros

    For the most part this company is pretty organized. Things are pretty fair, no one is passing off their work on to other people.

    Sometimes there is a lack of respect among departments

    Pros

    lots of holidays, both cost of living and merit raises

    Cons

    low pay, a sense of entitlement by some employees who do little or no work, a refusal by management to ever fire anyone no matter how little work they do, very high expectations on those employees who actualy do work, there are cost of living raises and merit raises, which is good, but merit raises are equal for all people, as management does not want to hurt anyone's feelings

    Advice to Management

    to stop coddling poor performers and ot stop worrying about hurting people's feelings by discipling them. Also, to have the same expectations for everyone.
