OK to work for but no advancement

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Waltham, MA

Pros-Generous vacation (3 weeks to start)
-Relatively flexible work schedule.
-Very nice co-workers. There is some very good talent here.
-Exposure to new technology (though training is usually hands-on, on-the-fly).

Cons-Difficult to get external training.
-Raises average about 2-3% for workers. Management is a very different story. Very much a have and have-not situation. It pays to be in the clique.
-Bonus plan not paid out over the last two years
-Despite the propaganda, upper management sees lower level people as 'resources' not valued and skilled personnel.

Advice to Senior Management-Reward innovative and hard-working employees in an equitable manner.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
