Good starter job

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Framingham, MA

ProsThe entrepreneurial environment gives motivated individuals a chance to build knowledge, skills, and (especially) contacts. The brand opens doors. Employees get great exposure to customers and customer issues.

ConsThe business model is broken. Tracker products are valued externally, but tracker employees are treated as replaceable cogs internally. The consulting and advisory services aren't all that good, and customers are pushing back. The sales force makes a lot of money, but adds little value. Management probably knows some of this stuff, but doesn't really know how to react. They do nothing to promote teamwork, offer no investment, and have no strategy for growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementTime to move aside - management is a big part of the problem.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
