Pros

Benefits package, work-life balance, teamwork within a function
People in general were very friendly and caring
Most leaders put high value on open and early communication

Cons

Since the company went public around 2000, business strategy seemed neither stable nor consistently prudent. Also, company-sponsored during-work events nearly wiped out.

Pay tended to be "competitive," at best.

Advice to Management

Get truly anonymous feedback and input from employees: current methods tend to identify people by e-mail address or IP address

    Pros

    I found the people there to be very generous with their knowledge and time. It was easy to learn how the company worked in each business. The size of the group in Wellesley was big enough to provide a lot of opportunity and diversity, but also small enough to retain a small company feel and energy.

    Cons

    I don't particularly like working in an office park environment. There is nothing around to walk to during lunch. It feels somewhat insulated. If you do have to leave at 4-5PM, get ready to wait in line for up to 1/2 hour just to leave the facility.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to enocourage sharing of knowlehow around how the company works through the Finance meetings and other learning sessions. The best training comes from internal people who are able to take complex subjects and explain them in a very straight forward and simple manner.
