    Pros

    Shawmut is a great company to work for with people who truly care about their work. It is a very team focused environment where most people are more than happy to drop what they are doing to lend a hand.

    Cons

    Project teams are small at times meaning that some days are long. That being said, management recognizes those who put in extra effort.

    Pros

    Free food sponsored by vendors and contractors

    Cons

    Long hours, small employee diversity , high expectations. Prepare to hear this daily : ''we are Shawmut we are the best '' , implementation of brainwash psychology.

    Advice to Management

    Go fishing .

    Pros

    None. Nothing is good about working for this company. All of them seem to be out of a nut house. This is the company from hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cons

    These people are all crazy. They made me leave my job just to fire me two months later! But they were afraid of a lawsuit because they try to make me sign a bunch of legal documents. You will regret working for these crazies.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost touch with reality. This is New York City not Boston!!!!
