Good for your career, bad for your family

Engineer (Former Employee)
Burlington, MA

ProsLot's to learn, lot's to do. Snack and drinks are a very nice thing to have. They try really hard to have a positive culture. Will look fantastic on your resume.

ConsNo project ownership. Many tasks are refactoring code, fixing bugs, or worse, adding features without any chance to fix the underlying code. Way to much process, easy to get held up for a week. Management gives no feedback until it's to late. Reviews are mandatory but don't matter when it comes to pay considerations. Some team members work constantly, at all hours and every day. This makes a 50-60 hour week light in comparison, and management encourages you to complete more projects to 'get on par'.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut some process, be prompt with feedback and expectations, encourage project ownership and discourage project pirates.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
