I've worked in a lot of great places. This wasn't one of them.

Project Coordinator (Former Employee)
Charlestown, MA

ProsYou get a lot of vacation and sick time. There's a lot of nice people, but only if you find yourself in the right unit or department.

ConsThere's a very high turnover rate. It's unfriendly towards teamwork or group activities. Creativity is dead. There's very little opportunity for growth or advancement. And there's a level of discrimination towards race and gender that's somewhat apparent.

Advice to Senior ManagementI wish that upper management and human resource would better scrutinize the abuse of workers by lower management. There's almost no protection for workers. If you're being railroaded neither HR or upper management would hear you out and will always side with their fellow managers. I've never though that unions were necessary until I've worked here.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
