    Completely agree with the comment on being a big complex organization -something we need to 'fight' continually. This is one of the reason we introduced "Colleague Connect", the enterprise... More

    Pros

    Great culture for identifying and advancing talented individuals. Bonus and incentive packages, included continuing education and the possibility for some tele-commuting.

    Cons

    Travel exceeded 50% and no recognition of hours needed to get to appointments. Chicago seemed very much a satellite office and everything was driven by New York.
