    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Constant Contact full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - free beer
    - easy to shine, many weak colleagues

    Cons

    - very unproductive work environment in software development
    - lots of employees with no motivation
    - weak technical leadership. New technologies are brought in and bolted on in a disorganized manner.
    - VERY slow to get anything done here. If you like cranking out code and seeing your stuff work, then this isn't the job for you. What used to take you 1 month will take 6 here.

    I have been working at Constant Contact as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Interesting Work
    - Knowledgeable People
    - Friendly Environment
    - Competitive Pay
    - Fun, Social Activities
    - Quality Intern Program
    - Relatively Transparent Management in regards to strategy for a company of its size

    Constant Contact offers a great internship program. I was very lucky to have secured a position over the summer in my area of interest. I landed on a great team working on an interesting project, from which I learned a lot about being effective in the software world. The company has a good name, and that has opened doors for me in finding a full-time job. While I wish I could have stayed on-board as a permanent employee, I'm still happy nonetheless for the opportunity I had at a great company. I felt appreciated as an intern. I was being assigned meaningful work. And the pay was good, as well as the frequent free food and beer cart Fridays. HR went to great lengths to make our time at CTCT enjoyable. We had lunch sessions with the senior executives, including Gail, the CEO. We were treated to a Red Sox game. And a few other freebies. Considering that we were all getting paid to learn and grow in our respective fields, the attention and care we received was very generous.

    Cons

    - Product Suite not as cutting edge as some of our competitors
    - Size: Organization sometimes felt comprised of silos
    - Slow to Implement Change (So much buy-in and negotiation required)

    Advice to Management

    - Implement Innovation Faster
    - Look to the future, try not to be trapped by the legacy
    - Cultivate more cross-functional interaction among all employees, not just middle and upper and management
