A great place to start your career. Extremely good and smart people.

Associate (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

ProsPeople are the number one asset of the company. Great relationships developed at the workplace. Smart and engaging clients. Good opportunities for growth and work in different areas. Interesting and meaningful work that company does domestically and around the world. Good work-life balance overall but could vary highly, depending on the manager.

ConsMost factors affecting your job satisfaction are driven by the management style and management capabilities by your direct supervisor. it could be the best or worst job in the world, depending on your supervisor. Not great pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome senior managers lack any management skills or education - they are great technical experts but not great managers. People working under those managers may suffer.

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