    Great place to work if you live in California due to lack of advancement outside of California

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Westford, MA

    ProsThe company tends to grow a lot and quickly. There is always something new and challenging to work on. You are never bored. The benefits are good and the managers I had were always understanding of the need for a work life balance.

    ConsLong hours and a very California centric management view. Folks at Corporate seem to forget that not everyone works in the Pacific time zone. There is very limited room for advancement unless you are in California. Also, management will create very aggressive timelines in acheiving goals and will ignore feedback when it isn't what they want to hear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe world is a whole lot bigger than Silicon Valley. As a global company, opportunities for advancement must be available globally. This has caused a lot of talented people to leave and go work for competitors.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
