A great place to work if advancement is not important

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Ayer, MA

ProsAn exciting fast paced environment on the cutting edge of a new technology. If you enjoy working on products and ideas that are revolutionary and one of a kind it is a place where you can be happy as long as you stay out of the "politics". Silence is golden enjoy your job.

ConsNot enough advancement from within. Company tends to go to the outside to fill positions rather than promote from within. If you vocalize disatisfaction with the status quo you are then viewed as a complainer and your chances for advancement dwindle even more. Way too much emphasis placed on political correctness. Showing your feelings is discouraged and frowned upon. Can sometimes be "Stepford" in to get along go along or else!

Advice to Senior Managementgive clearer paths to promotion and advancement. Improve employee recognition for a job well done. Do not shoot the messenger and understand when someone points out something that is upsetting to them it does not mean they are not a team player.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
