Employee, Oakbrook, IL - January 28, 2015
An overall friendly, laid back environment. The company has very traditional core values, which they are very focused on (people and relationships, open communication, work/ life balance)--and I've found the upper management to be very friendly and approachable.
For office staff; work-life balance is great for those that have families. Very modest working hours with flex summer schedules (off on Fridays) for office staff.
They also promote out-of-office social functions. They are a family-owned company but are growing rapidly and having record-breaking years, and are going through somewhat of a transition from a small organization to a larger one--and are starting to get some initiatives in place related to training, career development and succession planning, continuous improvement within operations, etc.
