This was a good company when I joined over 10 years ago. Since then the company went through a number of General Managers. Each of them tried to grow the business, but they had to report to Amerisourcebergen corporate, who just did not understand this business and would not invest. The business just stagnated for years until Amerisourcebergen had no use for it and sold it to IHS out of Winnipeg. The new owners were either fooled or did not understand what they were getting into. The technology is sound, but dated and the new owners either don't have the cash to invest or don't want to invest in the products. The end result is unhappy customers and lost sales, which resulted in layoffs and skilled people leaving. The few replacement positions the new owners approved are all more junior and paying Winnipeg rates. The cost of living in Buffalo Grove is much higher than Winnipeg. A lot of the management left over the years and those that remain, manage by fear. There is no communication from the new owners. I think they just don't know what to do. I'd expect them to take their loss and sell the business again very soon.
Close to home and pay check still cashed
No direction from management. Constant RIFs and people leaving not getting replaced.
