A good career move for associate and mid-level product managers

Product Manager (Former Employee) Cambridge, MA

ProsReputable company, great colleagues and work life balance. Competitive compensation, 401k matching, decent health/dental benefits, RSU, bonus, flexible time off and work from home policy.

ConsLimited product vision and politics. Career advancement within teams can be challenging with low turn over in senior staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore mentoring less managing.

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