Good company, but room for improvement.

Financial Analyst II (Current Employee)
Worcester, MA

Pros- Company is small enough that you can still make an impact by putting in the effort. No need to worry about being another face in the crowd.
- Senior level management is knowledgeable and have bought into the vision and strategy of the company. The messaging from them is consistent.
- Most of the people are exceedingly pleasant, friendly, and approachable. It's easier to get through the day when you don't feel isolated or like a worker drone
- There are office politics, but less than I have seen elsewhere.

Cons- The career ladder isn't there. Many analysts report directly to one of the numerous VPs w/o clear career path forward.
- Antiquated systems, need to know how to use work-arounds to compile relevant data. Technology group is generally seen as a hindrance in completing tasks rather than a partner, so individual groups create their own work-arounds that are unique to the group.
- Some people are just collecting a paycheck, and it's noticeable.
- Cafeteria is not good. The place can't even make pizza right...

Advice to Senior Management- Invest in improving systems that will last us the next 10 years, not the next 10 months.
- Senior management should try to be more visible. You rarely see most of them around the building. Even if you do, the interactions with most of them normally don't seem very warm or inviting.

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