    Cons

    The commute in to Burlington every morning is a real drag. Try to find a place close to the office.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out employees / employers that are driven, fast paced, and excited by the work they do. It makes worklife a lot easier!

    Pros

    My team is great, and there are plenty of opportunities to do something new and interesting.

    Cons

    The company is growing very fast, and is somewhat disorganized because of that.

    Advice to Management

    Training videos and quizzes are mostly BS, and easy to 'cheat' on. Get rid of them, everyone hates it. We need to reward people more when they deliver, and stop handing out fancy job titles like they are candy. I've met more "Architects" than I can count at this point. We need a better process around hiring. Finding and keeping good people is the most important thing to do right now, but no one is doing a stellar job of it. We need to take this MUCH more seriously. Please try to do more planning around these corporate events. I appreciate the thought and effort, but I think it is falling far short of being anything valuable. Filling out "bingo" cards (which aren't even bingo cards, by the way) and drinking at 11am before a Red Sox game is not team building. I filled out bingo cards like that in middle school, and adding alcohol to the mix doesn't really make it that much better. Surely we can come up with something more engaging. The same goes for the engineering summit last year - very disappointing.

    Pros

    Growing company, lots of users, high impact work, love my coworkers. It's a product that is changing the commerce world and how brands connect with consumers.

    Cons

    Not an easy job, changes impact millions of users which can sometimes be very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    keep it going

    Pros

    Extremely strong culture,and cutting edge technology at a scale in the cloud that few other companies are doing. We have smart people who are accountable which makes a huge difference knowing people are vested in the outcome of what we do. I love that the company pays attention to the little things that make a difference...leadership has designed a structure that makes it easy to work here, not harder.

    Cons

    Not many come to mind. The pace of growth is staggering at times and you work hard, but you are rewarded for it...so not really a negative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being accessible and communicating the long term vision!

    I worked at Demandware

    Pros

    I worked on many different teams. The employees were awesome to work with and were very helpful to learn new skills.

    Cons

    Tomax grew throughout the years and was eventually sold to Demandware. It didn't retain the small company family feel that it once had.

    Advice to Management

    You are losing good people to other companies because the overall feel is that management no longer cares about its employees.

    Pros

    They do a great job encouraging growth within the company. Many employees have moved within the organization trying out numerous different roles. They also provide a very family friendly atmosphere, which makes it a great place to work for young families.

    Cons

    Getting a little big and as a result, becoming more bureaucratic (though still better than most companies its size). They can also be a little stingy with raises from time to time. I don't think they pay as well as other oranizations in the Tech space, but the lifestyle may make up for it.
