Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Bedford, MA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bedford, MA

Pros

-Work life balance is great, because no one does their work and they just shift blame from one person in a team to another

Cons

-They haven't come out with a new robot (on their own IP) for ten years. Don't come here if you want to be working for an innovative company. They sell themselves well, but they don't live up to the hype
-Everyone here points fingers, they don't take ownership

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You talk a big game about talent retention, but you just had one of your biggest years for profit. Put your money where your mouth is.

    Current Employee - Ecad Administrator in Bedford, MA

    Pros

    A regular paycheck and not too long a commute. I'm well payed for what I do. Average place, standard benefits.

    Cons

    A good of compartamentalized knowledge, I always feel like management is not in touch with the rest of us and they seem very stingy with information regarding the company and the state of teh business. Presentation are staged to dispense information geared to stimulate people and it usually feels like a show and not really the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get us all on the same page. Personally I feel like a mushroom.

    No opinion of CEO
