Flexible schedule, encourages work/life balance, supportive management, staff recognition,generous contribution to retirement plan.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give a PTO bonus at every 5-year milestone instead of 10; go back to contributing more to benefits so employees pay less.

    It's a bizarre place

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    Current Employee - Analyst  in  Waltham, MA
    Current Employee - Analyst in Waltham, MA

    Pros

    There is an effort to match you to projects you have an interest in. There's a good work life balance, and they are pretty flexible with your schedule.

    Cons

    This isn't a good place to start a career. You're very much the low person on the totem pole; some of the phds don't even acknowledge you're a person, even if all it takes is a response to your polite good morning when you cross paths in the kitchen. Even just a head nod would suffice, but alas, no. Nada. Also, very little is done to control bullies/high maintenance staff. On one project, 3/4 of the project team either quit the project or left the company because one person was so difficult to work with it. Attitude by management was that yes, it's unfortunate, but you have to find a way to work with this person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know you expect to churn through BAs, but come on... Perhaps as a part of the annual review process you could have anyone who manages people be reviewed by someone they manage. As of when I left you're only reviewed by your superiors.

    Pros

    Intelligent people, flexible, good benefits

    Expectations too work all the time
    Not very supportive,
    If you don't live up to expectations or rub certain people the wrong way, you are out
    Poor management and very top heavy
    If you are not a PhD you are not very respected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managment should get clear on their mission and vision, and get training to learn how to be a well managed orgsnization
