Pros

Great co-workers, very smart and passionate about their work. Inspiring corporate mission - to help small businesses and non-profits grow and be successful. Lots of opportunities to grow your career, there is a real focus on personal development. In Product Development we're able to attend at least one conference or external training every year. Many internal training opportunities available as well. 10% of your time can be spent on innovation projects. Constantly trying to improve processes, etc.. We're not content with the status quo. Pretty good benefits, including 4% 401k match, and ESPP. Competitive salaries. Nice facilities, easy access to Rt. 128, plus Alewife shuttle. Flexible working hours, ability to work from home.

Cons

Constant Contact tries to do too many projects/initiatives at once instead of focusing on a few select initiatives. Lots of shifting/changing priorities. As the company has grown, change can sometimes come at glacial pace, and there can be a lot of bureaucracy to deal with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to get the company to focus on no more than three top priorities. Finish one project before you launch the next.

    Pros

    - Big enough (and publicly traded) company for career opportunities. Small enough that you get to know the leadership and get recognized for your achievements.

    - A recent focus has been on creating additional products to cross-sell the existing base, which has meant a huge technology overhaul using some of the latest and greatest technologies and frameworks. CTCT is open to using new technologies and individual teams can generally choose what's best for them. Empowering innovation has become a major focus.

    - Generally great people. The company culture is collaborative and supportive across all offices. Everyone really believes in helping small businesses, and in you.

    Cons

    - Stock price is highly erratic, meaning your stock options may be worth a lot or nothing at all, and that can change from week to week
    - Meeting-rich culture
    - Centralized decision-making makes it hard to know who actually owns execution
    - Technology is still legacy compared to many engineering-focused companies and startups, especially DevOps, though that seems to be improving quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on empowering innovation and driving decision-making down into the organization. Ensure product teams own end-to-end delivery (concept to deployment).
