    A very positive place to work

    Systems Analyst (Former Employee)
    Springfield, MA

    ProsI always felt like my work had value. There was a comfort level that let people focus on doing their work instead of ploting how to survive the next fall of the axe. In general if you needed information to do your job people were helpful. I never felt the need to pretend that I knew anything that I didn't.

    ConsSometimes they may have been a little slow to deal some personel problems. It also seemed like there was a tendency for plans to become objectives in there own right instead of being judged against the objectives the plan was intended to serve. There was a big tendency to filter out bad news as it went up the chain of command.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
