I have been working at CENTRA (Massachusetts)

Pros

Wide vareity of challenges; great people; with the right manager, there is no limit to your advancement potential.

Cons

When you ask permission to do something at CENTRA, there are two answers you will never receive: "No," and "we have a procedure for that." This is not the place for people who need structure and hand-holding.
