    Extremely Low Employee Morale and Lack of Industry Experience

    I have been working at Charles River Development full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The only perk to working here is the number of clients on the Buy-Side you are exposed to but you can also get this elsewhere.

    Cons

    Lack of industry expertise within the Client Services organization and it is no wonder they are unable to build an effective service organization like other vendors in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck

    I worked at Charles River Development full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is not a lot pros working there, they think they pay competitive salary,but have to work 9 hrs per day, and some one always look over you to make sure you work 9 hours, there is no trust.

    Cons

    It is career dead end for the technology, just learn and use the internal frameworks, not thing to learn to help your career. A lot of jerks over there.

    Pros

    Good paying job and if you like very slow paced environments, this place is great.

    Cons

    Not much opportunities for growth. For example, developers can only get to product managers or team leads. To get to higher management is hard.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Burlington, MA

    I worked at Charles River Development full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free gym courtesy of landlord (NOT the company). Slightly above standard salary levels. Some smart and nice people working there.

    Cons

    Terrible management practices and general culture. Agile development used to hide lack of product definition. Almost non-existent product management. Strange expectations that developers are supposed to know what the product should do (instead of domain experts/product managers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Probably too late for that.
