I have been working at InterSystems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The company really gives you the freedom to succeed. No micromanagement here. Everyone is focused on doing what is best to help our clients succeed.

On the people side I have never worked for a company where ALL the management is so available. It is great to work with a bunch of really smart folks who are willing to listen at all levels. You don't always get what you want in particular, but you really feel part of making the products the best they can be.

Finally, we work hard, but the company really believes in a Work/Life balance. I have had occasion to rely on this and found the support very gratifying.

Cons

Formal technical training could be better as can the documentation available. The later is greatly improved in recent years though. There is also that great bunch of people that are always willing to help out and guide you if you need it. However you really need to be a self starter and go looking for your answers no one is going to be holding your hand. This can be viewed as a pro too as no one is constantly looking over your shoulder (A fact I happen to really enjoy).

The organization is pretty flat so if you are looking for position advancement you may be disappointed.

Advice to Management

As far as the overall company culture and direction DON'T CHANGE A THING.

Some areas to think about:
- Hire some true technical writers for the documentation and scrap the current document search engine.
- Licensing model options need to be expanded or reorganized a little bit.

    Pros

    Worked in the HQ in Cambridge which is a great city if you're young. Company culture is great too, very flat in structure. Everyone is friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    The skills you acquire are mainly in their proprietary language, which isn't helpful if you're looking to transfer.
