Good work environment
Systems Engineer (Former Employee), West Des Moines, IADecember 4, 2014
Good work environment and great people to work with.
Opportunity to grow horizontally as they have multiple different businesses. A little improvement from Higher management would be some level of transparency and understanding and paying attention to employee needs.

Productive fully functioning Treasury department
Treasury Analyst (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJune 5, 2013
Pros: team environment, flexible schedules
Cons: benefits, parking costs
Working here was a great chance to learn all about treasury operations. My department was extremely organized and everyone had very specific roles and goals. Because we were highly specialized it was imperative for us to work together as a team to reach our month end goals. The hardest part of this job was meeting month end deadlines. It required some late nights and early mornings but everyone was dedicated to the task at hand. I truly enjoyed working in a team environment. Management was primarily available for any questions you may have but allowed us each to work individually with minimal supervision.
