Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Waltham, MA
Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Waltham, MA

I worked at Constant Contact full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- free beer
- easy to shine, many weak colleagues

Cons

- very unproductive work environment in software development
- lots of employees with no motivation
- weak technical leadership. New technologies are brought in and bolted on in a disorganized manner.
- VERY slow to get anything done here. If you like cranking out code and seeing your stuff work, then this isn't the job for you. What used to take you 1 month will take 6 here.

    I have been working at Constant Contact full-time

    Pros

    Engaged and approachable CEO, Beer Cart Fridays, Passionate and supportive employees. Competitive salary with nice benefits. Leadership sensitive to suggestions made by rank and file.

    Cons

    As the company has grown, mid management talent has struggled to keep up. At one time the company and culture was "flat" easy to do with 100 employees. There are a lot of problems with communication as well as process with the new levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get serious about training employees on management skills. Once a quarter workshops consisting of powerpoints and meaninless icebreakers and activities aren't doing it.
