    Former Employee - Process Innovation Associate in Watertown, MA

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Gain a broad, end-to-end exposure to the software development cycle, get to work on multi-disciplinary teams, and get to take ownership of projects. You also get the opportunity to go on-site and visit customers' workplace to gain insights for your work, and you get to learn a lot about the industry.

    Cons

    Because the company is growing so fast, there is little training on products and you are responsible for your own knowledge transfer. There is ambiguity in the leadership so it feels like you have to satisfy a moving target. Formal feedback given through performance review system often did not match the informal feedback given through the evaluation term.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is doing a good job adapting their management and leadership techniques to the growing company, but they should establish procedures.
