    Pros

    The benefits package is amazing. The Society is very generous to its employees in both financial and non-financial rewards.

    Cons

    The commute is hellacious. There are too many companies in Waltham for so few routes in and out.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more telecommuting.

    Pros

    Recent initiatives into new business have breathed life and income into company, so feeling more secure. (not much of new income trickles down to employees, however)

    Decent health insurance, although options have decreased in past years. Used to be better, with cheaper copay and higher percentage of costs paid by employer.

    Onsite backup daycare.
    Onsite mailroom.
    Onsite drycleaning pickup
    Onsite gym
    Flexible hours, dependent upon department

    Cons

    Entrenched old-fashioned philosophy.
    Resistant to the changing needs of a modern workplace.
    Lower than average pay.
    No opportunity for advancement.
    Dependency on consultants.

    Pros

    If you want great benefits, this is the company to come to. If you want easy going people that work hard, but with less of the rancorous politics then this is a good place. If you want to work for an "older" company both in terms of the corporation itself and the people working there then this is for you. If you want to work for a leading brand in an industry than this place is for you.

    Cons

    If you want to work for a company that pays a high salary, then this place is not for you. If you want to be challenged than this company is not for you. If you want to climb the ladder quickly this company is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate the strategy better. Provide career tracks that demonstrate an individuals opportunities to grow and climb within the company. You'd be able to keep some people if you provided clearer paths to leadership and increased opportunity.

    More frequent opportunities to provide input toward managers/style and leadership capabilities.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, tons of flexibility, longevity. An extremely involved and caring executive leadership team.

    Some folks have been here just a bit too long and are very set in their ways.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Positive work environment. Supportive management. Fairly consistent, regular schedule. The Society is an easy place to work. Nice environment and positive vibe.

    Cons

    The problem with the Society is that it is a place where careers come to die. If you are an aggressive, career oriented person, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs a more focused vision and that vision needs to be communicated more clearly and regularly to the staff. Need to get workers excited about coming to work everyday and need to remove employees who are not performing.

    Pros

    The people are great, very supportive management team, good benefits package, excellent variety of work, provides good work/life balance

    Cons

    I have been very happy working at the Massachusetts Medical Society, so I don't have many downsides. If I had to mention one I guess it would be the location. Commute is tough no matter what direction you are coming from.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to continue leading the organization with well defined and executed strategies and clear objectives that are communicated well to employees
