Not A Place for Sales

Account Director (Former Employee) Cambridge, MA

ProsCompany has a great reputation that they need to live up to. Good benefits. Sharp analysts, but their availability is limited. Health benefits are excellent, as is vacation and holidays, but there is not enough time to take vacation.
