    It would be nice to have unlimited resources to execute all of our strategies faster, which ins't realistic of course

    Pros

    The day I started, they handed me all the tech tools and resources I need to do my job. They had an amazing training program and they start several people at the same time so there are others to bounce ideas off of. The graphical interfaces make the 'art' of innovation sing and the algorithms unique to Affinnova are the science underneath. The projects and the clients require that we all fire on all spark plugs at all times, which makes me feel alive. Love the free bagels on Fridays and the always 'snacks in the kitchen' emails.

    Cons

    the 128 commute can be a drag

    Advice to Management

    Create a FB and an iPhone app for concept studio as a parallel path

    Pros

    High growth company. Very competitive and technologically differentiated in the market. Quality of the average employee is much better than most other companies. Diverse projects ensure continuous learning. Highly results oriented- no need to manage impressions; just deliver!

    Cons

    Not a well known name, yet! Work does come in spurts (like any consulting firm) so there could be periods of long hours.. but I would not look at this as an issue as it is not a continuous phenomenon.
    Pretty young company and growing rapidly; with so many new people coming in it is yet to evolve a "culture" as such.

    Advice to Management

    Internal marketing is definitely needed to foster a sense of belonging. There is a lot happening- this is the right time to forge the identity that is Affinnova!

    As a fast-growing company, hours can be a bit crazy...

    Pros

    Very challenging and rewarding. If you are willing to work, and there is no shortage of it, you will be recognized for your achievements.

    Cons

    There are very few down sides to speak of. They do not offer 401K matching and they are located in Waltham.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Best job I've ever had but also one of the hardest. It's challenging and difficult at times, but that's also what keeps it interesting and makes it rewarding.

    Continue to invest in training, technology and marketing support.

    I have been working at Affinnova full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Affinnova is a great place to work. It is a good balance of casual/positive atmosphere while also challenging you to learn and grow. The company is constantly progressing internally and externally. Creativity and ideas from all levels (i.e. age) of employees are encouraged and most importantly used.

    Pay, benefits and time off are in the top 10%. As the companying is growing it is investing more and more towards its employees.

    I am personally thankful for the opportunities and people I work with at Affinnova.

    Cons

    I don't have time to go to espn.com 10 times a day like I did at my last job ;)

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard, re-investing in the employees and don't lose sight of the long term vision

    Lots of freedom and flexibility with schedule. Ability to work remotely. Support through inter-departmental employee groups. Great benefits and salary. Awesome people to work with. Great working environment. Focus on skills development. Ability to attend conferences and training events. Excellent IT department that doesn't drown you with policies. Good food in the kitchen from time to time and fun company events.

    Cons

    Not the easiest place to get to and lots of traffic in-between

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employees in the trenches and strive to meet their daily work needs.

    Pros

    Great team
    Proprietary solutions
    Really smart and diverse teams
    Fair compensation for performance
    Always thinking ahead

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any. It is a challenging environment we compete in and one which I thrive in. If you are not conformable in a fast paced demand and performance work environment, then you may not work out at Affinnova.

    Advice to Management

    Keep breaking down barriers to success and developing new solutions to market.
