Company Culture

Depends on leadership in office and that can change every 4 years.

Support from management

varies significantly depending on who is in office

Teamwork

Depending on the team, awesome - horrible.

Freedom to work independently

varies signicantly depending on the job and your managers.

Internal Communication

This is top down we will let you know what you need to know.

Office / Work Environment

Chicago office is at the Thompson Center and is a deteriating office that is not being maintained. Rips in the 30 year old carpet are repaired with yards of duck tape - litterly.

Work-Life Balance

depending on your roll go home at 5pm and not worry about until 8am.

Job Security

Depends on who is in office and if you are union.

Workplace Safety

Chicago office is at the Thompson Center and is a deteriating office that is not being maintained. Rips in the 30 year old carpet are repaired with yards of duck tape - litterly. There are holes in the floor covered by carpet you can trip on/roll over. There are outlets sticking up out of the floor to trip over.

Inclusive / Diverse

very diverse and inclusive.

What I like about the company

It was a good opportunity to help others.

What I dislike about the company

This is a government job so the restrictions to look accountable are many. The government cannot pay for employee coffee, you cannot accept any gifts - even free pens, employee amenities are zero. The up side was the government pension, holidays and vacation time. Agressive government watch dog advocates are erroding those.

Company Culture

You are a piece of fodder for the machine.

Support from management

Some support but more than not everyone is at the whim of our stock holding company

Teamwork

The local team was constantly working to put out fires caused by corporate.

Freedom to work independently

Some work independance

Internal Communication

When we see internal communications we usually get information on a need to know basis.

Attitude towards older colleagues

experience means little when everyone is treated like a cog in the machine

Career Development

unless you are on the inside track and work in Las Vegas... or Alpharetta... you might have a chance at some career development.

Overall compensation for your work

pay looked good on the books but when it came to actuality - the compensation was not even close to what it should have been

Work-Life Balance

All work no Life... worst place I have ever worked at in this regard.

Company Image

All image no substance

Job Security

Since they Keep acquiring other companies. Many jobs are constantly in a state of flux. WE lost many good experienced people due to acquisitions and poor management decisions.

Workplace Safety

due to trimming the fat our physical security team were lacking in the proper training and skills needed to do their job efficiently.

Challenging Work

it's challenging due to the constant tidal wave of work... and the fact that the company has chosen to never have enough staff to do good quality work.

What I like about the company

local team was fantastic

What I dislike about the company

Executive management can only look at the bottom line due to the huge debt they have acquired. Very poor management decisions have handicapped any quality of production, everything is a blind mad dash to get it done at the cost of doing a good job.
