    Pros

    None. Absolutely none. People I guess.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Chicago office is a smokescreen to SD and DG offices closing. Keep expecting people to bleed for the company that doesn’t care about their employers. A JOKE.

    Advice to Management

    Why don’t the people who actually do the work have a voice? We keep hiring VPs and director level and above. We’re in a financial bind? How much did we just increase in salary? What about the workers with minimum salary increases, although we have no money, but hire all these execs. Get in the trenches if you want this company to rebound. IT needs definite roadmap, one that actually happens.
