    I have been working at Technomic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Technomic is well respected and has been around for 50 years. With the recent new ownership, the company has been increasing investment in products and human capital. New products and expansion are providing ample paths for growth. Great company!!

    Cons

    New employees can sometimes struggle with the amount industry and product knowledge necessary to be successful in their position. Must be willing to constantly expand knowledge.

    I worked at Technomic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The down town location was great and the gym nearby offered a discount to our employees.

    Cons

    Very cliquish office culture and poorly executed on-boarding of new hires. As an entry level associate, training was inarticulate and opportunities to build successful client list withheld by managers.

    Advice to Management

    Develop better systems for training and retaining new -hire business associates.

    Great downtown Chicago location
    Fascinating industry and customers
    Fun trend-watching

    Lack emphasis on developing talent

    New ownership is a chance to reinvent the firm and provide relevant content

    I have been working at Technomic (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They provided a great work environment. The management was very helpful in explaining the different job sites they provided security for.

    Cons

    Even though they had different site to work, it seem they didn't have enough workable for the employees. I think if they had had more workable hours I would still be with them.
