Crowe
  • Professional Services
  • Chicago, IL, US
What employees are saying
Crowe truly lives it's values. I have worked for four companies in my nearly 20 year career, and don't recall a single value of a prior company. They were wall decor, not lived. And Crowe truly lives it's values, particularly care. They don't need to remind you of the values in a poster - you see them every day in how leaders and employees show up for clients and one another.

A lot of companies say they care about the well-being of their employees and the communities we live and work in, but RSM is the first company I have worked for that really demonstrates they care- between consistently sending employees surveys requesting their opinions on topics before making decisions, to our community and volunteer initiatives, they demonstrate that they do really care through action, not just words.

AbbVie
  • Biotechnology & Pharmaceuticals
  • North Chicago, IL, US

The culture at AbbVie is amazing compared to other large and small organizations where I have worked. We have almost no internal politics stemming from a belief that if we work together there will be ample opportunity for those that want it. Our roles are challenging and we strive for continuous improvement which works because we hire people that are looking to do more for themselves and the organization. We are who we are and where we are because of the people around us and the commitment and investments the organization makes on continuous staff development and inclusion. AbbVie is a great place to work!

Sikich
  • Professional Services
  • Napervile, IL, US
What employees are saying
I truly love that Sikich prioritizes the work life balance. I often believe that companies will use this as a buzzword when hiring and not follow through with instilling comfort around this idea in its culture. Sikich has done just that. Any coworker I speak with is able to talk to me about their many joys, priorities, and hobbies that they can be active participants in outside of work- and I believe because of this freedom, workers here are more motivated to get their work done and to get it done right.

This company has become more than a workplace for me. It has become my second home, where I see my second family every day. When I come to work, I feel safe, valued, and welcomed. We have wonderful teamwork and I always feel that my coworkers have my back. The fact that this company values who you are as a person, even outside of work, is wonderful. To not have to stress about what happens if my child gets sick, is priceless. To a parent, there is no greater reward than to have a company that understands and lets you be a mom/dad, while also being an employee. There is literally nothing more important and appreciated.

The Jel Sert Company
  • Manufacturing & Production
  • West Chicago, IL, US
What employees are saying
One of the most unique characteristics of Jel Sert is the longevity of employees... many who have been at the company for 20+ years.

Senior leadership is honest and transparent. Ideas are welcomed and changes to improve the business are celebrated and then incorporated.

Complete trust in their people. No enforced working hours because we're a global, remote workforce. It's truly amazing and I've never experienced that at another job, this level of trust. It makes everyone work harder, in my opinion, because you care more about your work and the company's success.

The management here is excellent, and my managers make me feel like a person - not just a number or cog in a machine. They never give me a hard time about taking PTO and, in fact, encourage us to take our unused vacation time. Even though I have a lower-tier role on the team, no one has ever made me feel lesser. Management listens to my concerns and provides good guidance on how to take action or will intervene when needed.

HDMZ
  • Advertising & Marketing
  • Chicago, IL, US
What employees are saying
I cannot stress enough that while I have only been in the working world for some 20-odd years, HDMZ is leaps and bounds ahead of any job I've ever had. I have never met a more capable, intelligent, and compassionate group of people. Everyone gets along, and differences of opinion are settled fairly and professionally. The executive team is approachable and transparent. There are also genuine efforts to boost diversity and uplift different voices, without feeling like a metric to be checked off. I have never been so thoroughly motivated to stay with a company to grow and become the best professional version of myself than I do with HDMZ.

  • Chicago, IL, US
What employees are saying
I think a lot of places speak about being a family environment, but here at Milhouse, I truly feel that. We are engaged together at work and really appreciate the culture of experiences we are achieving together. But not just that, our kids are growing up together, we are teaching STEM in house to our next generation and we share resources that life requires us to have like simple things that help us just balance the demands of a growing company and life. Which I love because it is just makes me feel like they understand that life does not turn off when you walk in the door or out.

The flexibility in working hours and locations is unheard of anywhere else. The people who work here keep things professional when it comes to the work they do, but they still know how to socialize and be relaxed at the same time. Here, family comes first. If work and family matters overlap, it is not only acceptable, but it is encouraged to be with and support your family before worrying about work. There are plenty of opportunities to make up work hours, you can't make up family hours.

Their ability to keep me feeling like I’m in the office although I’m fully remote in another state.

Overall, Zifo has been a great place to work and provides excellent resources and opportunities.
