Pros

Amazing benefits including free healthcare, gym reimbursement, shuttles from Central and Kendall Square, free snacks, and much more

    Pros

    Great place to work, as it's a culture that cares if you get your work done, but lets you have a good time while doing it. Camaraderie is great within teams, and collaboration between teams is getting better. Very flexible for work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not a ton of opportunities for growth, communication between teams could use improvement

    Pros

    A lot of down-to-earth nice employees to work with...you can make some great friends here. The company will give you some cool swag every now and then and some fun work outings to keep you happy. The benefits are also very good.

    Cons

    Sales is a complete disaster due to extraordinarily poor management. It's pretty bad when 50% of a sales team leaves in one month (and more to go soon) because of 2 people. A complete mass exodus is going on here! The majority of the junior and senior team are trying to move internally or leave the company all together. Goals are extremely inflated so that it is impossible to collect monthly commission. The big heads simply do not want to share revenue with the little people. Work goes unappreciated.

    The structure of the account model is a mess. Territories were taking away...moving to an automated system which has been broken since January. The Speed Wins culture is a joke...it only means that they launch systems without thoroughly checking...resulting in larger messes and more fires to put out that before.

    Managers have a closed-door policy. They only know your name when you are making money. The second you have a bad month...don't expect a hello in the hallway.

    There is zero upward mobility based on merit. If you suck up to the managers then you will be ok...but if that isn't your style then you are out of luck. You can be a top performer but if the boss doesn't like you for whatever reason than you will rot on your desk for years to come.

    So to recap - no organization, terrible leadership, no upward mobility, no commission...and some of the worst base salaries compared to other tech companies from within the industry. It's a great name on the resume but honestly not worth the headache and depression you will get. Also to put the cherry on the top - HR is corrupt and in cahoots with management, so if you every have a serious problem with your manager...don't bother going to HR.

    Advice to Management

    Open your doors and start listening to your employees! Don't promote employees just because you like drinking the same beer with them. Don't talk about employees to your other employees...be professional! Don't be a coward and hide in your office when the entire team is suffering without commission pay and a broken lead model. Promote from within for once (this rarely happens)! Go to some management classes instead of thinking that you already know everything. Management is using tactics from 1952. They like to answer your questions with another question to avoid addressing your concern. Wake up and change!

    Thanks for your candid feedback. We recognize that change can be hard, especially when it comes with shifts in leadership and priorities. However, within a speed wins culture, there’s a continuous ... More
