Strong market potential, Great people to work with

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

ProsSmart and Professional People, Very innovative products and technology.

ConsThe company went through a roller-coaster ride after the 2001 downturn, with lay-offs and re-orienting the company in a new direction. This was a period of chaos, uncertainty and frustration for most of the employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone, they are doing a great job!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
