    DO NOT JOIN THE MARKETING TEAM

    Pros

    Working with individuals in other departments other than Marketing was amazing. But Marketing department, there is a reason half of the team quits every year from the department.

    Cons

    A passive aggressive, micro-managing manager that only got her position because she was going to quit. Awful to work with, attitude for no reason and brought in outside emotions very easily into work and projected onto others. And a director; who promises false growth, almost never actually working, and apparently still stuck in his college sport days. Do not work for this marketing team!

    Nothing too ground breaking

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of work, and relatively drama free. Pretty good packages, again nothing too ground breaking.

    Cons

    In Cambridge, so its difficult to commute to. Parking available but there’s a waiting list. Fragmented leadership - lots of mixed messages. Definitely need to be one of the guys to climb the ladder.

    I do not recommend

    Pros

    The firm has a good business model for clients and some of the older staff has even built extensive careers here .

    Cons

    If your junior staff, your likely to struggle. The firm does not support proper career development, pays low, has a surface level culture, and doesn’t give any chance to hold upper management accountable. These are things I’ve heard from my peers across multiple departments, so it’s not just me . Management is very dismissive and not helpful
