    Great place to work!

    May 16, 2022 - Marketing in Natick, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - awesome health/dental/vision benefits - friendly work environment - flexibility to work from home - additional perks like free breakfast/snacks, free flavored waters/beverages, bi-yearly weekend trips to NH, and a multi day all expense paid trip every 5 years

    Cons

    - limited promotion/growth opportunities for someone in my specific position - if not for the pandemic working from home would not be an option, so I wonder if they will be more strict about “office days” in the future.

    Lost a lot of very talented friends and colleagues in the UX group.

    May 21, 2022 - User Experience Specialist 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Work life Balance - Dev org does care about customers and helping move engineering, science and technology forward. - Lots of good people in dev who "do the right thing" - Private offices - Lots of training If you want to start a career, get a few years of training in development, UX, or QE and take those skills elsewhere, this might be a good place for you. If you want to wind down your career and coast into retirement, this is a good place for you. It's slow moving and there are enough perks to keep you comfortable.

    Cons

    - Very little career growth opportunities. - Very little support for employees. for instance, very few people in the UX group are approved to do site visits, talk to actual customers, go to conferences, contribute to the larger UX community or get the software that is essential for doing their jobs. - UX team puts more effort into making themselves seen and indispensable to the org than delivering value to customers by improving the software. (note: doing the latter will cause the former to happen, not the other way around). - Too much overhead and process to appease upper management - Lack of transparency and vision - Low morale - Compensation

    Sales Management needs revamping

    May 18, 2022 - ISR- Inside Sales Representative in Natick, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the top scientists and engineers in the world (clients).

    Cons

    Company refuses to allow WFH which is causing senior people to leave and new people aren't replacing them since they can go work somewhere else for higher pay and WFH. Sales management is awful. One manager likes to brag about how they've never sold anything before and tries to avoid as much work as possible. One manager is okay at their job but will never fight for you. Upper sales management is useless and keeps pushing weekly sales challenges that take us away from our already overburdened funnels (due to not being able to hire). Insurance is okay, but could be better Salary is not competitive for the area. Good luck trying to buy a house within 2 hours of the office.
