Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

ProsWas able to practice typing skills and paying attention to detail. Could listen to music. Organizing materials enabled you to see how creative you can get with the files. Everyone was working, no one was working more than another.

ConsMinimal talking, very quiet work environment. Computers were old. Do not expect to make friends within the office since there is limited communication.
