Been Worse
Cyber Security Specialist (Current Employee) –  Northfield, ILOctober 9, 2017
Upper management is horrible within the IS division. For every little decision, approval from at least 10 different teams is needed (including non-IS teams). They just outsourced a large amount of jobs to InfoSys and it has only gotten worse.

Staff (Current Employee) –  Northfield, ILSeptember 12, 2017
Conform to the C-A-P way or it will eat you up. Leave your sense of humor and fun at the door.

Benefits are good; CEO is great; People are super nice and friendly.

Don't propose a new idea, or a new way of doing something. If you do, schedule 100 meetings to discuss your strategy, write reports and match it against the 15 corporate strategy documents

Typical Association with a few nice perks
Manager, Enterprise Marketing and Communications (Former Employee) –  Northfield, ILJanuary 30, 2017
CAP suffers from the same problems many associations face - they want to do too much with limited resources. They tend to try to do what members want them to do rather than using the expertise of the staff to determine market needs and then work with key members to find what products will best meet current needs. But the building and the grounds are nice, as is the cafe.
Pros
Nice building, nice cafe
Cons
Lack of focus on priorities

Technical developer (Current Employee) –  Northfield, ILJuly 23, 2016
Horrible directors and management for IS. Too many managers. All talks - but no work is done. Too many leaders in IT... Ignorant about any technical knowledge so they preferred to get job done by consulting companies.

Leadership don't trust employees so no place for growth or learning... Too many road blocks to get something done.

Do not waste your career!
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Too many BS.
