    Company Review

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsGreat solutions when they work. Clients receive a good value for the solutions and the sales process is very consultative.

    ConsVERY political. If you are not in the right group, this company sometimes does not promote on performance rather than your clout and/or relationships within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVerify information since it will most likely be filtered by the time you get it.

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

    Secure position until the unexpected layoff after 10 plus years

    Manager (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsDecent benefits, some autonomy and security.

    ConsRevolving management, minimal salary increases, unexpected layoffs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't make unsubstantiated promises. Listen to employees as they are a company's most important assets. If you answer only to shareholders, your company is doomed.

    Decent job

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsGood work/life balance, and the projects are interesting. The people are nice and generally competent.

    ConsLots of bureaucracy. No uniformity in job titles among management, so it's hard to figure out who the highest guy on the totem pole is. Engineering decisions are often made by non-engineering management based on past experiences or cool new buzzwords. A lot of design-by-committee. Middle/upper management seems to seagull-manage (swoop in, poop all over the place, then fly away) to justify their existence.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your front-line employees to create the best experience for the customers, and then get out of the way.

    Conslots of upper management changes and organizational restructuring. big mish mosh of services and products that don't always seem to align or feel logical to be grouped together

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
