Project Coordinator (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 11, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Commute; Temporary Positions (Visiting), Limited Room for Promotion
Good company to work for and the benefits plan is great. The company promotes a mission that encourages development and diversity, but there is not a lot of room for promotion. Co-workers are wonderful to work with and managers are somewhat flexible. You will work very hard here! Pay could be better. Commute is not enjoyable from southwest suburbs, especially in the winter.
