Stay Away....

Director (Current Employee) Waltham, MA

ProsBenefits (health, dental, vacation (3 weeks), global company, ability to be home based)

ConsDoesn't value employees; bureaucratic; cronyism rampant; Sr. Mgmt thinks they are GOD and that they must be treated that way; to many VPs and no resource; no career advancement unless you are a benefactor of cronyism; Sr. Mgmt out of touch and policies reflect that; Workload expectations very unrealistic; don't care about level of education or skills

Advice to Senior ManagementReturn to valuing your employees and quit putting so much resource and value into VPs that do nothing. Promote people b/c they deserve it and have worked hard for it. Develop policies that match the real work that is going on; Quit hiring VPs and instead hire resource that is actually needed for projects.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
