    I have been working at Charles River Development full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pros are less when compared to Cons. Very few pros..Located next to Mall. Close to other technology companies.

    Cons

    I wonder how the company got a Rating of 3.0 because this company deserves not more than a Rating of 1. I believe some of the reviews were written by the Recruiters and HR to project the company in a better sense. I been working for few years and this is my opinion on each of the department known to me. I disagree with some of the comments in the forum that is not place of slackers. Slackers are easily recognized and rewarded here. Believe it or not...Directors and Manager recognize and reward slackers because they do not feel threatened by them. Indeed slackers are very good at buttering up their bosses most of the time. Slackers are successful in doing their job and Directors\Managers are successful too. Insecurity and fear are the biggest concern in this organisation. Most of the time Directors and Managers spend time in manipulating things rather than doing productive work. This is one of the reason their delivery schedules to the clients are often delayed or pushed down. We have been talking about slackers all this time, what about losers. Losers are the smart people in this organisation who work real hard to get things done and strive hard to meet their goals. Directors\Managers dump their work on them most of the time, while they spend their good time with slackers going out for lunches, laughing and chit chatting at the kitchen etc etc....
    Recruitment - They give more salary to lure you from the Job Market. Dude..you got understand this...why they are paying. Not because you have the skills or not because they have the budget. They have badly screwed up their reputation amidst ex-employees in the Wall street. Take a note of this friend, recruiters say you will be highly compensated but remember the hours are 9 hours. If you work 8 hours and get paid a salary of 90K. This is equivalent to 100k offered for 9 hours of working and getting paid the extra amount they quote for your extra hours spent. This is simple math and logic. Do your own math to figure out the difference.
    Development
    Have their own standard in coding. Coding standards are way different from the outside world. Always busy fixing unit test and learning open source tools. Developers hate testing the product but believe testing is the easiest job in the world. Code reviews are hilarious...Developer sends it for code review and another developer reviews it and comments "upper case letter missing", "Add more inline comments." etc. Developer thinks he can do anything with Java. It is just the attitude they carry in here. No career development for Developers in this organisation other than Senior and Lead role. Lead roles are rare unless an existing lead leaves or new project opens up.
    Product Management
    Have this own style of management. They work once in a year
    QA\Product specialist
    QA folks are second class citizen often get beaten up by Developers and Product managers. QA is the least respected job in the organisation. QA is called Product specialist and a product specialist is called QA. Their title jargon's are often confusing with no career path. If you join as a QA, you will die as a QA here. I believe a Janitors job is better than QA job because it stinks a lot here. QA literally has no power or no proper role in the organisation. Everyone in the organisation believe they can test well or better than QA. QA has to deal with this cultural shocks. Developer role has a reporting structure of Technical Department and Business analyst has a reporting structure of Product Management. QA has a reporting structure of reporting to a Developer and believe me, this is the end of the world.
    Product Management/PMs
    This is a department with pride in taking credits for others. Most of the Business analyst and PMs have no or limited knowledge of the Securities Industry. BA's especially lack understanding of the clients business as they are either joined as Co-op or with little experience from a consulting background with a PG in finance. BA's and PM's lack technical knowledge or pre-sales skills. Very few PMs are successful here and proven their credibility. Others are walking here and there...laughing with co-workers and show up to work late to pass their time. But when it comes to claiming credits for others work, they are the winners.
    Support and Implementation - They are the ones who get the beating from Clients. Often clueless with poor documentation in hand and not knowing how to fix client issue. It is because of their lack training and bureaucracy in the organisation, they are helpless souls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management learn to improve to work culture and treat employers properly.
    Utilise the talent within CRD than shopping from outside.
    Provide Management training to Directors and Managers.
    Upper management change the Directors/Managers with CRD for more than 8 or 10 years.
