    Very politically charged. Not good for long-term career development.

    Engagement Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGood salary. Good autonomy. Broad experience. Some great colleagues to learn from.

    ConsA great deal of political nepotism. People are promoted based on friendships, as opposed to merit. Strategy changes on a quarterly basis. Poor leadership. Management talks a good game, but lack organization and follow through.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed new leadership in Americas. Lack of organization.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor Environment to Develop Career Long-term

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsCompetitive Salary and Benefits. Working remote is well accepted and virual teams are strong. Very fast-paced and generally interesting roles. Global community of very talented people. Great opportunities to learn from your colleagues.

    ConsPolitically restraining. Who you don't challenge is key to survival. Generally people learn to keep their head down. Weaker product pipeline than one would want. One repeated observation - the closer you move to the top, the shorter your time with the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCode of conduct needs to apply to you too.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Director

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOpportunity for broad experience that you wouldnt typically get at other companies (but dont expect to get paid for it)

    ConsOften a reactionary place to work. Employees on call all week (weekend emails) - poor work/life balance. Headquarters not thoughtful for European colleagues (conference calls late at night).

    Advice to Senior ManagementConstantly revisiting decisions marginalises employees and wastes time. Trust in the people that you hired, if you dont, trust them, fire them!
