    Intense, fast-paced and productive environment with supportive, open and helpful teams.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people. Clean, open, spacious, modern and well-lit environment. Food on the premises for those who do not have time to go out.

    ConsIt's a pro and a con. While it's great to be constantly busy, some people take on too much or too much is thrust upon them.

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

    Engineering (Former Employee) Bedford, MA

    ProsIt is OK job with a reasonable benefits, many good employees

    ConsIt is a pay check, not much more. No growth opportunity, stagnant outdated technologies without uptick potential, lots of politics, management has neither clear vision nor appreciation of engineering excellence.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany needs new technologies/products to survive. 30 years old technology will not keep it afloat forever. Do something about it.

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