      Together We are Heavy?

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Free beer, need I say more - Great training team and onboarding program which gets you very knowledgeable about the products and company culture - Executives are very open to answer any and all questions during company meetings. They are around the office, so you can get a significant amount of facetime with C-Suite - BBC supports internal transfers, but I feel as though that is the only way to move up in the organization

      Cons

      - BBC is very clicky, if you are not "in" you will be limited in career growth and opportunities if you are not "in". - Managers tend to shy away from conflict, so its tough to grow and improve. - Limited Work/Life balance. - Limited upward mobility - Pay is low. HR knows people want to work here so they can be lower on compensation - Annual review structure changes year after year, so we sit in meetings every year to learn how to write reviews of our direct reports.

      Pros

      Free beer ( 2 cases a month), catering on wednesday so I didnt need to pack a lunch, food truck outside most nights, competitive wage

      Cons

      No room to get promoted unless you want to move to Boston, 12 hour night shift with only an extra dollar per hour having to change my life around. Huge "seniority" based company culture makes life difficult for new employees
