Ok

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

Prosgreat stock options and RSU plan. Good flexiblity for work/home balance. smart people. interesting and chalenging work. Community responsibility is cool too.

Conslack of career development plans for anyone mid stage in your career. communication from senior executives leaves a lot to be desired.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore communication to staff, more visiblity into decision making. More career path - more opportunities, less politics. Bring back bagel day.
