The ship is sinking, no kidding ...

Waltham, MA

Prosflexible working hours, as long as you get the job done, no one really cares when you come in and when you leave. You can work from home as well. 20% + of the employees are decentralized.

Conschaos in financial and operational systems, currently.
too many highly paid directors who are only good at talking, but not real working.
High turnover rate, over-burned work bees.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire and keep the good employees!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
