    Pros

    a lot of learning opportunities, employee resource groups are fantastic, great people to work with

    Cons

    most of the jobs are located in naperville so if you start at a smaller office, it can be tricky to get your foot in the door in the main location

    Advice to Management

    none - i think management is doing a great job especially with newer employees, making them feel welcome and helping them learn more aspects of the business.

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth, good internship program, friendly people to work with.
