Continually changing company vision and re-branding creating confusion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be less reactionary to economic conditions and more proactive and conservative in approach. This has gotten better with the new CEO but is still apparent. Similarly, senior management needs to be less concerned about shareholder value and more concerned about employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    Interesting work. Pay seems to be similar or better than similar positions elsewhere in the software industry. Many people aren't terrible.

    Cons

    There are the standard quarterly financial pressures that impact work, causing direction to suddenly change and causing people to worry every three months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communications with the employees, realizing that their goals may be more practical than the corporate goals while still supporting and not conflicting with the corporate goals.

    Pros

    Flextime & time off are good. Easy to work remote part time. Friendly and competent colleagues worldwide except in Needham.

    Cons

    Compensation poor, raises low and under inflation, takes full advantage of global wage arbitrage. Trend to outsource all R&D/QA overseas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Says "Our people are our best asset" but actions belie words. Performance reviews are corporate theater and unhinged from compensation.
