Pros

The pay is pretty good and most of the people here are really top flight. It looks like the market has bottomed out and we maybe in for a real upswing in the CRM business.

Cons

Lots of Layoffs, about one per year, typical office politics, power games and people not really taking ownership of problems. The CRM business has not done very well over the last 10 years or so--it's not just Boston CRM however, the entire pacemakers and other implantable cardiac device market has fallen on hard times.

Advice to Management

Be realistic about the projections for the future, stop tell us we are going to jump over the moon. We might and if we do, let it be a surprise. When you predict great improvements and they don't materialize, you look less than great.

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangement. One can work from home for a week or more for sick young children.

    Cons

    Although not spelled out black and white on paper, one often does have to work over time late night hours or early mornings to accomodate offshore resources' schedule. Operational saving might be at cost of the current employees who are dedicated.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with those who focus on making oneself visible, fighting for leadershipt to be successful.
