Pros

It is a great place to work with people who are innovative, fun and dedicated. Management spends a lot of time giving feedback and making sure people understand the company’s goals and their own goals. Lots of ongoing communication with our customers and employees is a good thing! Every full time employee is a stockholder and you get the sense we are all building something really awesome together.

Cons

Start-ups can be a bit bumpy at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the conversation going with all of your customers and employees.

    Pros

    Nice office in downtown Boston. Interesting business model. Cool events sometimes.

    Cons

    There have been several layoffs here, usually one big one a year and one smaller one, although they don't want you to know it. After the massive layoff right before Thanksgiving, the CEO asked every employee to email him stating that they were in and that they still believed in the company. Very strange. They want you to think that they're different by providing free snacks and hosting fun events at times. The issue is, they aren't. They'll let you go without ever giving you feedback on how you can improve, and they've cut many amazing people, only to fill those roles again for what can only be the decision of new management coming in and hiring their old teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop poaching leadership from brand-name companies only to have them come in and clear everyone out. Don't preach about core values only to not use them yourself with employees and retain the incredible people you do have.

    Doesn't Recommend
