I have been working at Charles River Development full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of smart people. Ability to work with some very high profile clients. Good technology and pretty current. Will be given a fair amount of lattitude to get your job done.

Cons

Corporate culture is fairly sterile. It's mostly about getting the job done and you're just another body. No tuition reimbursement unless you plead a case for it. Firm way over promises to clients which creates havoc later on.

Advice to Management

Talk to your employees and enough with the b.s. and finger pointing. Mananagement is always looking to blame their failures on someone lower on the totem pole.

    I have been working at Charles River Development full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people, relaxed environment (compared to GS, CS, BAML, etc). Company benefits are good and the pay is acceptable for the location. Founder takes a long view of the company, and doesn't worry about quarterly numbers.

    Cons

    Must be self-sufficient in procuring information about what's going on in different departments. Flat structure makes that difficult sometimes. Cannot work from home or remotely on a consistent basis. Also...no wifi.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously...wifi, more meeting rooms and someplace to sit and each lunch.
