    Great people, nice perks, catered food, amazing office in Boston

    Ok Benefits like insurance and 401k, I am pretty sure we can do much better, change to 1 dollar for dollar match, improve insurance plans, maternity and paternity days can be increased.

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on challenging projects and learn a lot

    Cons

    * Micro-management by execs and Middle managers that stifles creativity and drive, leading employees to leave * Lack of employee recognition and empowerment * No long term vision and strategy

    Advice to Management

    Get employees' feedback on their managers, and adjust accordingly. Good employees leave because of bad managers.
