    Former Employee - Media Project Manager  in  Boston, MA
    Former Employee - Media Project Manager in Boston, MA

    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - Good location, occasional events, etc.
    - Professional development if you choose to exercise it

    Cons

    - The worst HR department I have ever dealt with (local dept that is; national ESC is pretty good)
    - Ineffective managers retained and promoted
    - Inability to retain quality employees -- some were let go (???), some left because they weren't challenged
    - Micro-management. Goal posts constantly shifting. Upper level politics filtering down to new employees, tainting our performance and creating additional burdens during peak busy season
    - A hundred different data systems, most of which are antiquated but have a respectable face-lift. Different teams clinging to their technologies to stave off irrelevance
