Current Employee - Senior Implementation Manager  in  Burlington, MA
Current Employee - Senior Implementation Manager in Burlington, MA

I have been working at Charles River Development full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Lots of smart people. Ability to work with some very high profile clients. Good technology and pretty current. Will be given a fair amount of lattitude to get your job done.

Cons

Corporate culture is fairly sterile. It's mostly about getting the job done and you're just another body. No tuition reimbursement unless you plead a case for it. Firm way over promises to clients which creates havoc later on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to your employees and enough with the b.s. and finger pointing. Mananagement is always looking to blame their failures on someone lower on the totem pole.

    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.
