    An okay place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    Pros- Collaborative and nice colleagues.

    Cons- Pay below industry average.
    - Desks are way too close to each other and they are too open -- no privacy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Could be awesome, but it's not

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsLots of smart people with high energy and good ideas. An easy, family-friendly work environment.

    ConsAn executive management that does not understand the many companies that they've acquired, who micro-manage through sycophants who tell them exactly what they want to hear.

    Advice to Senior Management1) Give autonomy to the business lines and stop micro managing.
    2) Dump the multiple levels of management made up of politicos who tell you only what you want to hear.
    3) Advertise! You acquired several businesses who had name recognition, then re-branded them "Linedata", which is unheard of.

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

    Fun place to work

    Head of Software Engineering (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGreat location in downtown Boston but the furnishings are a bit dated. There is a friendly culture and people socialize after hours. Health benefits and vacation policies are unusually generous for a company this size. Work hours are very flexible and work life balance is generally excellent.

    Conspenny pinching influence from Paris headquarters. Insufficient investment in R&D. Offshoring efforts have not been a huge success. Choice of location in Tunisia for non-French products questionable

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend the money on a stronger sales force.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Smart coworkers, mediocre management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    Pros- worker bees are consistently intelligent and good to work with
    - good working relationships with clients
    - good to grow your career via skills and projects, not titles

    Cons- management is not strategic, too reactionary
    - clients want us to do more for them, but management can't figure out how to capitalize on that (usually due to resource constraints)
    - promotions are non-existent
    - management rewards those that continuously create fires and put them out, instead of those that prevent them from occuring

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Ok

    Electronic Trading Specialist (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsTeam is awesome, people are friendly when there is less strees. people help out as much as possible. The drive is there for people.

    Conssenior management stinks. Promotions are handed to "best buddie" type people. If your in the inner clircle then your golden.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at some qualified people around the groups and i am sure you will find smart and leading people.
    Stop giving away senior posts to "best buddies" and start reconizing people who work for the company.
