    I have been working at Boston Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free snacks, free lunch every two weeks, great location

    Cons

    Low pay compared to the industry average
    High high turnover, this includes both entry-level and the management.
    Management sold, but now new management looking to sell again
    Horrible and I mean horrible politics going on inside this small company, which include suckups to management and unfriendly clashes/vendetta. The new change has created a tense environment that I'm afraid is not conducive to good work being accomplished.
    People don't seem to like each other, but they fake being kind/generous to each other

    Advice to Management

    Good luck! I know I'm jumping ship as soon as I land an offer.
