Good appearances but reality is harsh
Manager (Current Employee) –  Downers Grove, IL27 May 2016
Work life balance does not exist. Expectations are consistently high, demanding 60-70 hour commitment per week.
Death by meeting; meet for everything and the actual work moves slowly.
Management is not honest. They preach values of tolerance and diversity, but they do not live it. I have seen many good employees have their roles "eliminated" or forced out, many older and several older women.
You can be a golden child one day, and booted the next. Little chance for advancement unless current leaders leave. Time for an overhaul, especially within IT.
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
No work life balance, politics

OK environment and fun workforce, but disconnected leadership
IT Management (Former Employee) –  Downers Grove, IL18 June 2013
Not a bad place to work, but the company is growing at a rapid rate and experiencing some of the pitfalls associated with such a pace of growth (high turnover, lack of job security, overworked resources, lack of process and direction, etc.). Senior management comes across as deceptive and having ulterior motives by many. They speak about openness, honesty and transparency but do not actively practice it.
Pros
Diverse, global workforce
Cons
Understaffed, lack of sufficient resources, no work-life balance, lack of transparency by leadership

Good company, great product, knowledgeable staff
SENIOR MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Downers Grove, IL18 August 2015
Typical work day is lots of meetings. Normally it takes about a little more than a year to get a client or develop a new partnership so a lot of work is involved up front and then the waiting. A typical day (in the office) is about 10 hours and expect to work from home as well to meet project deadlines. Management is very flexible, they just want the job done and do not get to caught up in the details of how. And yes we have a ping pong table with organized tournaments.
Pros
In the suburbs if you do not want to catch train downtown
Cons
Lots of hours

Senior Forecasting Analyst (Former Employee) –  Downers Grove, IL31 July 2012
Havi is the deal! Some management issues in the past, but fixed. Work/life balance is amazing. Benefits are out of this world. And job security is a given. Still wondering why the heck I left......

Not a long term investment
Database Administrator (Former Employee) –  Downers Grove, IL27 April 2015
The compensation and benefits were amazing. I found the management to be disjointed in their vision. If you can handle things that change by the hour and not try to get too wrapped up in doing a good job, this place may be for you.

I was a trainee so I can't tell that much. But for what I had there, I would recommend this place to work.
