    A reasonably solid performer in an interesting industry

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsAclara is a diversified company with hardware and software products, operating in a range of industry markets (gas, electric, water, rural, muni, etc.) As such, it has different sources of revenue, different projects, different products. It makes for an interesting mix of business projects and good sources of revenue for the company. The people that I work with are professional, intelligent, and know how to do their jobs.

    ConsAclara works in a competitive industry. It is solid, but not necessarily cutting edge. Because it has many moving parts spread in various directions, it can be out-competed or outpaced by competitors that are targeting specific market segments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind 1 or 2 strategic objectives for each segment of the business so that goals and development are more clear.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe culture is laid-back and communicative. Normally, if one staff member is busy, you can find another to answer your question/concern.

    ConsSometimes the workload requires lots of OT but management offers lots of support and encouragement. It's a team environment to work in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the staff and work across company lines to accomplish corporate goals. The new management staff is excellent. and good to work with.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
