too many lay offs
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 2, 2018
Always on your tip toes and afraid to be let go. There is no rhyme or reason for it. Terrible way to treat your employees. Keep the employees that actually work and do a good job. Getting rid of your top performers is not the way to go. Keep your bread and butter.
Pros

Cons
poor, poor leadership

I prefer to skip.
Sr. Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 27, 2018
i prefer to skip the review section. I was shocked that a prominent non-profit company of this size would have the type of culture that they have. Disappointed that the company allows the behaviors in the 21st century.
Pros

a very dated approach to tech and business
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 9, 2018
A very old and complacent technology team more interested in doing what they did yesterday than in advancing tech or even permanent and long-term solutions.

Tech decision are handed down from the top and strictly enforced so there is very little room to try new tech, regardless of the fact that you'll be encouraged to do so at every turn

Any effort to simplify processes and technology, or even expect a reasonable turnaround time on even the simplest support tickets will only get you blacklisted by a small army of unapologetically neurotic greybeard lifers whose entire approach to technology is characterized more by statements like "it is what it is" and "better safe than sorry", sounding more like my grandmother's fear of the internet than by any modern approach to technology.

Management at all levels is very entrenched in culture and almost completely clueless at all levels, seemingly more interested in stroking their egos and maintaining business-as-usual, fully leveraging the organization's "waterfall" process and overt tendency to gratify seniority in management. Seniority in engineering only means that you've been there longer. You're not expected to actually know about the technology beyond how it is that the last engineer there got it working.
Pros
only 10% of projects are delivered on time, and enthusiastically so.
Cons
only 10% of projects are delivered on time, and enthusiastically so.

Very slow growth and stagnated career path. Work-Life balance is good but no flexibility in terms of WFH. Benefits are good but not the best and limited ownership opportunities

Better not have differing views
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 29, 2018
Views are progressively liberal and you had better not think differently or you'll be on your way out. Their only goal is to further their liberal political agenda.
