Biosurgery keeps changing hands

Senior Development Associate (Current Employee) Cambridge, MA

Pros-Great benefits
-flexible work schedule
-ability to grow within the group
-the management in my group is very encouraging and let us take offsite seminars, attend conferences and encourage growth and development

Cons-few jobs openings and chances to move up or to other departments
-Upper management have been around for so long that they do not encourage or accept change easily
- a lot of getting ahead is from being liked and who you know
-salaries are low for experience and education
-departments do not often work well together, there is a lot of argument among managers of different departments

Advice to Senior Management-care more about your employees
-promote the people that do the job well, not just the ones that you like

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
