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

    Pros

    Salary competitive - its what keeps people stuck here. Leadership is trying but the effort does not trickle down to mimd-anagement. Co-workers are talented but not utilized to full potential.

    Cons

    Very poor mid-management style, those in charge are not held accountable if employees are dissatisfied, they only need to keep those above them satisfied. If you have a problem, you are literally considered the problem. You are on your own here, even HR does not defend the employee. Tough to telecommute, a lot of wasted travel time that could be work time. Poor department communication and vague processes leads to a lot of wasted time, effort and repetition.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership and senior management needs to wake up to the fact that there are a great many dissatisfied and frustrated employees. They need to realize the bottom line will be affected greatly by a lot of wasted endeavors. The data driven employee survey does not focus on real problem, its a smoke and mirrors show.

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

    Pros

    Culture, smart people, great product, beer cart Friday, free coffee and soda, casual attire, some positions are able to work from home or remote locations. CEO and executive is always walking around office and are all easily approachable even as an intern. Easy to move around company if position you currently hold does not fit you.

    Cons

    Company is growing fast, which may not seem like a con but worried it may outgrow itself or grow too fast. Senior management is a tight knit group so I can see how it may be hard to advance as a lower level employee. Also, this seems to cause a lot of talent to leave and go to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in ourselves as a company and make sure young talent that you bring in doesn't leave after ~5 years.
