    I worked at Continental Resources (Massachusetts) full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They offer some great benefits at reasonable prices (not great, but reasonable). First years get 3 weeks of vacation which is nice. Tuition reimbursement, although not very much. They do a few nice things for employees once in awhile (lunch, company outing, etc). On 3 day weekends, they often close the office early.

    Cons

    In the Marketing department, there were never any defined roles. Everyone needs to know everything, and as a result projects were never fully completed or done correctly. No consistency for things that should have had it. One person would be told to do one project, and a day later the same project would be given to someone else. Department head does not embrace others opinions (although constantly being ask for them) and has no idea what people are doing within her department. There were never any hard deadlines for projects, so nothing ever got finished. Department is constantly being reorganized every few months and as a result made it difficult to follow what to actually do (so no one ever did it). Marketing head knows little about today's marketing in the digital age except for what's seen in webinars and articles (which don't always pertain to the company) and will not accept your ideas and opinions when you don't agree with what's being done (some practices which are borderline questionable to be illegal). Often times I was asked to do specific things I did not have the power to do or the right tools to complete, and was told to find a way to do it. With such a small department, there is no place to move up and grow. Salary was also very underpaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to others opinions and what they have to say. Take some classes to keep up with current trends.

    Pros

    Flexible Work schedule while in the field. Good Customers

    Cons

    Most of the Cisco Engineers are close to incompetent. I have no idea why ConRes retains customers. The work by Pro Services is horrible. Constant complaints from customers. Management never has internal meetings, probably to hide their poor management skills.
    When people are let go its all kept secret. Pro Services are expected to pay the bulk of their travel costs up front. A busy engineer may float $3000-$4000 a month in travel costs.
    When I was hired I was told that there were commissions paid as part of compensation. Commissions are a joke. Only full time bodies at a customer site have a chance. No matter how much field work you put in you get penalized for sales support, training and internal efforts. The Senior monument gets too far into the weeds. Needs to hire competent management people and let them manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owners of ConRes, Hire experienced managers, not your friends and relatives.
