    Great company and culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Concord, MA

    Pros- Agile and adaptive organization
    - Top quality products
    - Small enough company to create friendly atmosphere with coworkers
    - Independent

    Cons- Career development and growth could be better
    - Compensation/raises not market rate
    - Engineering driven culture can sometimes be a hindrance
    - Life balance a bit out of whack due to global operations

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage more career growth and movement and remove some of the top layers.. Hire more producers as opposed to managers who don't deliver.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Marketing Programs

    Staff Marketing Specialist (Former Employee)
    Concord, MA

    ProsTelecommuting options, flex schedule, employee independance, different learning opportunties, great people to work with, reasonable time off options, team environment

    Conspoor growth salary growth opportunties as length of service increased, poor promotion opportunties if not located in headquarters, does not support full-time telecommuting options

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the employee contribution and not the managers contribution. Managers have a fantastic way of protecting themselves while throwing the employee under the bus. Managers have access to the decision makers when layoffs occur so they know when to cover themselves, the employees are totally focused on thier assigned tasks so they don't have the ability to prove worth.

    Also share the wealth, if the company is making the most money they have ever made, give more back to those who stuck with you when the company was not doing so well.
