Most challenging job I ever had.

Quality Engineer (Former Employee) Burlington, MA

ProsThe team helped each other if you needed it.

ConsLong hours because of the 'puzzles' I wanted to solve. Lost job due to outsourcing right after Sept. 11 (so date of employ. Wrong below) job was sent outside of USA but that's business. Lost my ability to keep learning cool work stuff every day!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep promotion of balance re. Work and life. Recruit those who lost jobs due to outsourcing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
