A great learning experience, a great portfolio-builder.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA

I worked at OHO full-time for more than a year

ProsRespectful, honest culture. Fulfilling project work, often in non-profit or education/philanthropy/religious groups. Flexible environment to make your own path.

ConsIf you're looking for hard-core, cutting-edge tech pizzazz, maybe not the best fit--though OHO is always ready to absorb and integrate excellent talent, so you might move them that direction!

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Developer Review

Web Developer (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA

I worked at OHO full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat location, decent culture although that was starting to crumble. The strength of this organization is with it's employees. Some very talented developers and IA folks combined with a real desire to innovate.

ConsUpper management, favoritism, lack of direction and leadership. Deadline driven with an emphasis on turn and churn projects rather than quality work.

Heavily represented design and IA interests with no measurable representation for the development side of the house. Very low compensation compared to similar opportunities in the Boston area.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire a CTO to represent the developers interests.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

great staff that do great work, not so great senior management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA

I worked at OHO

Prosthe best reasons are the quality of work produced for clients, all the people who work on projects, the culture, and free friday lunches

Consthe downsides include senior management's lack of focus, direction, and listening, the high turnover and little that is done to correct it, and the lack of recognition for a job well done

Advice to Senior Managementlisten to the employees when you ask for their opinion, or even when its unsolicited. don't be as desperate on every project.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good place for creative, less so for technical

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA

I worked at OHO

ProsSome really great clients, lots of good people to work with. Nice location. Good variety of projects.

ConsLess of a focus on work life balance. Not enough focus on specific areas and disciplines. The employee vetting process could use some work. Short-term thinking is a problem.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more innovative in how the company is run - look at your competitors and how they are running their businesses and emulate them. Be more focused.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
