    Former Employee - Support Engineer in Chicago, IL
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Orc Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked in the Chicago office when I was with Orc... Great work culture - really collaborative and open environment with a great group of core people who were the foundation of the Chicago office.

    Cons

    The industry itself isn't burgeoning and if you pair that with the relatively limited opportunities when working in a satellite office, it was really tough to envision a long term future here. Just not enough room for growth, and not a culture that did a great job at rewarding and encouraging career growth.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Orc Group full-time

    Pros

    Most individual teams are internally friendly, functional and productive. This is particularly true in the Chicago office. The office also has excellent cooperation between the teams there. The company provides good benefits and a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Relations between offices, and some of the teams on an international level, are strained and not highly functional. As a satellite office (even though it's the largest satellite office) Chicago seems to come in very distant second when its needs or input is regarded by HQ.

    I have been working at Orc Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The working conditions, hours, and environment are all excellent. The benefits (healthcare, lunch, gym membership, vacation days) are all second to none. It's a fantastic environment.

    Cons

    The company lacks direction and a will to grow. They've essentially stayed the same throughout my time there. New products target the same customers as before. It can become a very static place without the opportunity to see new things or grow.
