    I have been working at Charles River Development full-time

    Pros

    Software engineers are encouraged to learn about the business domain, with free lunch seminars offered among other things.
    Current developers were retained during the recent migration to newer technology--no mass layoffs.
    Rarely dull, there is always a new technical challenge.
    Compensation is very good.
    Fairly relaxed atmosphere.
    Mobility between different development roles is available--for example moving from individual developer to team leader and back again, or moving to another development team.

    Cons

    Not many social activities, no foosball tables or similar things (not a con for me but it would be for some).
    Must be self-directed--it can be hard to get needed information, you need to be a bit of an 'internal entrepreneur'.
    Unproductive employees don't last (not really a 'con' but people need to be aware of this).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More recognition of employee achievements...though this has been getting better over time.

    I have been working at Charles River Development full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Smart people, relaxed environment (compared to GS, CS, BAML, etc). Company benefits are good and the pay is acceptable for the location. Founder takes a long view of the company, and doesn't worry about quarterly numbers.

    Cons

    Must be self-sufficient in procuring information about what's going on in different departments. Flat structure makes that difficult sometimes. Cannot work from home or remotely on a consistent basis. Also...no wifi.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously...wifi, more meeting rooms and someplace to sit and each lunch.
