Technology Services Manager
in Schaumburg, IL

"I worked for CEC for nine years and I found it to be a great work environment. I was there in its glory days and I was there when the company started to decline and had to make a lot of tough decisions, including reduction in staff. I am confident that the company will bounce back and that it will return to being the ideal work place."
