Pros

Good pay, reasonable work-life balance, good first job for recent grads.

Cons

Company has a high bar for hiring, but then does not utilize or develop the skills of many employees. Input and knowledge based on previous job experience at other companies is not welcomed. Many employees have never worked anywhere else and are not aware of typical software business processes. Middle management (Directors/VPs) more caught up in political power struggles and appearances rather than focusing on the good of the product.

Poor benefits package considering the company is in healthcare--only middling offerings for health insurance and no real dental or vision. No tuition reimbursement.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, highly intelligent employees, fun work environment, and an unlimited number of opportunities to learn more about the healthcare industry.

    Cons

    Recognition at times, knowledge sharing (because people get so enveloped in their positions), and a slight corporate latter that doesn't always place knowledge and experience over tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and reward knowledge-sharing on teams. It's great to have a lot of highly intelligent people working independently, but adding more collaboration will help us become an even more saught-after software/employer.

    Pros

    Athena is full of dedicated professionals and provides a positive working envirnment. Athena promotes cross-employee training sessions. There is a free shuttle bus from Harvard Sq to the Watertown, MA.

    Cons

    The Watertown, MA office has a limited selection of lunch options around the office. Parking lot can get filled up quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The work environment here at Athena is very positive and moral is high. I look forward to the future success of this company.
