Current Employee - Human Resources  in  Newton, MA
Current Employee - Human Resources in Newton, MA

Pros

Great product, lots of interesting projects
Company in acquisition mode, exciting new additions to portfolio
Free snacks and drinks, free beer

Cons

Consistency-no consistency regarding promotions, its a who you know environment
The chosen ones at the VP level get to take paid sabbaticals while everyone else is working at night and on the weekends
HR continues to be a non value add entity and it seems nobody in HR works a 40 hour workweek, some don't work on Fridays all year long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a more all for one, one for all atmosphere.
Eliminate the sabbaticals for the VP's, or create a program where everyone gets one after 5 years or something

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Newton, MA

    Pros

    Lots of random perks. Pretty relaxed office

    Cons

    Much of the work was rather boring. The feel of the office was like it was still trying to be a cool startup when it really is just a corporate enterprise.

    Good company. Could easily be even better.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance.
    Fun culture.
    Nice facility.
    Pay was okay.

    Cons

    Location. The headquarters is in a suburb of Boston. Hard to get cabs, and not a lot to do in Newton, MA.
    Too many temps. They have 100+ temp employees who seem like a subculture in the company. Also, they are all hired through PSG who doesn't seem to treat them fairly.
    Salary is mediocre at best for anyone who is not in sales or an engineer.
    Facilities and Admin have a "good ole boy" mentality that is opposite of the rest of the company.
    The country music they play at reception seems out of place at a travel/tech company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new staffing agency asap.
    Upgrade reception so it represents the company more adequately.
    Integrate the temporary employees into the culture more.
