From Mettawa, IL — 09/03/2008

Pay is good, but nothing spectacular.

The culture is good and somewhat laid back at the corporate level relative to other places I have been but they get things done. There is a lot of respect if you are good and everyone is really friendly. Benefits, pretty decent.

Job security sucks now because they lost a few billion because of the sub prime mortgage crisis.

The company does have a lot of potential for growth in many sectors. It's all about what you put in and what you show.

The only main gripe I have is the location is AWFUL. It's in Mettawa, IL which is a far north suburb of Chicago. Most people drive at least 1 hour to get to work, so have something fuel efficient if you plan on working here.

Co-workers are pretty good, but high level managers are generally excellent since they are mainly recruited from great consulting firms.

The work environment is great since it's a new building.

Overall, great company.
