A company that is technically savvy and has a sound business model, a rare combination!

Current Employee - Manager in Natick, MA

Pros

- Company core values are demonstrated everyday, it's not just words on the webpage. One reason I joined was the opportunity for professional growth, not only do they have courses, but the management and employees are knowledgeable and are great examples and mentors for the skills taught.
- No politics: everyone is here to help the company and their co-workers succeed.
- Profitable company that shares its success with the employees through a stakeholder bonus.
- Decisions are not made on a whim, they are analyzed and understood before taking action. Decisions can take a while with this approach but overall it is a smart way to do business.
- intelligent employees that respect your intelligence

Cons

- As mentioned above, sometimes decisions can take a little longer than you might like; but is worth it in the end.
- Standard procedures that have been well vetted and exist in some areas of the company, but not all.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Natick, MA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Natick, MA

    Pros

    Great products, technical savy, strong engineering and industry focus.

    Cons

    The marketing department actively promotes and rewards bullying of junior or new employees. Micromanagement prevails, draconian review process with frequent belittling and demaning feedback. Communism with cookies.
    Turnover in the company is high for newer people, while the old guard soldiers on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are either part of the problem or part of the soluitiion. As long as this type of behavior is sanctioned you are part of the problem.

    Current Employee - Staffing  in  Natick, MA
    Current Employee - Staffing in Natick, MA

    Pros

    friendly, supportive, learning culture; conservative and generous fiscally; extremely profitable

    Cons

    philosophy seems to be if it's not broken why fix it but risk missing out on innovation and creativity; some analysis paralysis works against implimentation of new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create a leadership development culture for the next generation that will support innovation and creativity; learn how to embrace and implement true strategic planning
