Instructional Designer (Former Employee) Boston, MA

ProsAn on-the-rise school that's attracting smart faculty, staff and students. The facilities are fantastic, the equipment is all top-notch, and there's a real desire on the part of almost everyone to do good work. A realistic approach toward learning is also excellent -- this isn't a research institution; it's a place where people learn how to get stuff done.

ConsNothing beyond the same issues you encounter at any higher-ed position. It's not a utopia, but it's certainly not bad either.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
