Disorganized company doing their best to do good in Massachusetts

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Next Step Living full-time for less than a year

ProsIdealist CEO is a sweetheart and very concerned that his people are happy. 360 degree feedback encouraged. Responsive HR. Lots of genuine people working there.

ConsConstant changes in pay structure, which are genuinely designed to reward certain behaviors but the reality is that people are getting paid less and less for more and more work. Disorganized growth spurts = growing pains, which is expected for a fast growing company but can be difficult to assimilate.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore measured, well thought-out growth. Test feasibility and the possible effects on changes to salary structure before implementation to understand if desired changes are realistic rather than back pedaling later- what looks good in a spreadsheet might not work in real life and translates to disillusioned and demoralized workers who feel that your spreadsheets and bottom line are more important than their ability to make a living.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros: hot industry, inspiring vision, young energetic employees Cons: sweat shop, disorganized, meager compensation, cronyism Advice to Senior Management: consider Socrates... "The unexamined life is not worth living." No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

If you're desperate for a job, skip this company. You're better off working in a fast food place.

I worked at Next Step Living


Pros: Company mission. Coloful employees. Creativity is unlimited. Cons: This company boast a great mission, but the Sr management team are amateurish at best. Favoritism is clearly the only key component to move up… Advice to Senior Management: Entire company need restructuring. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
