      Death by mismanagement and Acon

      Pros

      Corp office is near El, convenient free parking when flying out of O'Hare

      Cons

      Since private equity, Acon, came on board, the company dropped its efforts to change the stodgy and combative old-hire culture. Merit increases vanished, comp froze, and the company had its first panicked furlough in the midst of peak demand. New hires come from the outside- not promoted from within- and trying to create opportunities for yourself will only get you delays and excuses. Hundreds of legacy systems cobbled together with no documentation make any system work painful and uncertain. IT was largely outsourced to India and those who remain are bitter and not collaborative, making driving change slow and at times impossible. Staff is being squeezed so private equity can lower their cost on a balance sheet and abandon this tire fire.
