Lots of resources, changes strategy frequently

Clinical Operations (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA

Pros-Smart people
-Great benefits
-Nice facility
-Opportunities to expand experience outside of one's department

Cons-Frequently changing operational strategy and culture messaging
-So much focus on improving processes that actual work can suffer or be confused
-Cultural norm to work from home at night (to keep up with amount of work)
-Difficult to be promoted (i.e., I worked in my role for an entire year before I was officially given the title and matching salary)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
