    Fun, open-minded and well-paced work environment

    Junior Web Developer (Former Employee)
    Waltham, MA

    Pros- Lot's of team based projects
    - Open environment where you can share your ideas
    - Fun and enthusiastic people
    - Very cool new office space

    ConsIt was sometimes easy too fall back on work because there isn't particularly any deadline I had to meet. I had to stay self-motivated which turned out to be not so difficult because the company did cool stuff.
