    Few career growth opportunities

    Senior Scientist (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsInteresting projects, good group of smart people to work with, reasonably flexible schedule, lax dress code, and opportunities to interact with clients.

    ConsVery few vertical growth opportunities, token promotions, mediocre salary, poor middle management in some groups, great management in others, too focused on deadlines instead of the best models.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great work, smart people, great team work, niche area and great company to start career.

    QA Engineer II (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsSmart people, good people interaction, team work is amazing.

    ConsPay should be increased, hiring should be made serious by focusing more on skills (tightening the recruitment procedure by selecting cream layer).

    Not the best, not the worst, closer to the worst. Will test your sanity.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLocation, close to transit, friendly colleagues, company events

    ConsSales-driven organization- everyone else comes a very distance second, long hours for little reward, pay is on lower end- definitely gets smaller as you stay since pay raises are small

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat all employees with respect. All means all. Allow more than senior management to be involved in corporate strategy and well-being. Promotions should be based on levels of success, not kissing up.
    Show more compassion for those who work hard. Leave your egos at home, and stop trying to demonstrate your supposed superiority.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Interesting company to work for with great people.

    Analyst (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsMy favorite part of working at AIR is that I am always interested in what I am doing. Our business is very exciting and relevant to the lives of many people around the world. Additionally, the people that work here are very bright and friendly. The company is very dedicated to internal training, so if your background is either on the insurance side or the science you will be brought up to speed with the other aspects of the company quickly.

    ConsThe company is still struggling with allowing employees to work from home. In my experience it is allowed for specific circumstances, depending on your manager, but not regularly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementResearch Department is to separated from the rest of the company

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Does not pay well when compared to other companies in the area

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsFree Coffee, office close to T station.

    ConsThese are some of the cons with respect to the greater Boston Area: Low compensation levels, very high turnover in the company, very poor employee & talent management. Everyone in my team is looking for better opportunities in other companies. Employee retention/loyalty is very low. Currently the company is having a very hard time filling positions with good talent due to better opportunities available in other companies in the area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed major structural improvements in the company. Otherwise with the economy improving, most of the key people will leave.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
