Good people and technology but working through growing pains.

Product Manager (Current Employee)
Bedford, MA

ProsExciting market and technology.
Fun to actually produce stuff and push technology to market.
Smart, hard working and dependable people in the company. Pleasure to work with almost all!
The company mission is referenced often and I believed we live by the mission.

ConsRecently, a little too quick to change direction and too often.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to flatten the organization and tap into the collective genius of the people. I hear a lot of employees say great things but they act as if thy do not have a voice to insert good ideas.

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