      It all depends on your manager

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The benefits are pretty good. Work from home is allowed and your schedule can be flexible if your job allows.

      Cons

      No career advancement - you will be doing the job of the higher band but not getting the title nor the pay. There is a disconnect between CEO & real life at the company.

      Great for Some

      Apr 21, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Wellesley Hills, MA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Supportive manager, great coworkers, high-performance culture, clear goals, great bonus incentives and pay increases. Occasional fun events on campus, ability to work from home if necessary, good work-life balance if you had the right support. Ability to find roles in other departments, great benefits and EAP resources, nice campus.

      Cons

      Overwhelming work load at times. Upper management doesn't always listen to the individuals and teams that are on the frontline working with the products and customers. The company's diversity and inclusion efforts are superficial with the exception of a few allies that really do put in work to enact change. Not every department got a pay increase. Every year, we would hear from the higher-ups how well the company was doing thanks to the work of the employees, but were simultaneously told that we had to work harder and expect cuts to staffing or other employee incentives due to strategic restructuring. Possible to find opportunities across the company, but not always a ton of opportunities to move up in your department.

      Horrible Company

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I honestly can't think of too many pros other than they seek out good individuals but cannot retain them due to their low pay and bad company culture

      Cons

      My interview experience with them was awful to begin with. The culture isn't great...too cliquey and the pay is horrible. Really needs to be more employee focussed.
