Suggestions for improvement

  • Tuition reimbursement for current enrollment, paid conference opportunities, travel benefits, budget for teambuilding activities in every department, free gym, free parking, a more present and integrated higher management team, a helpful and responsive HR team.

What I like about the company

Although the company is big, it feels really small at times, in a good way. Everyone says hi, the office is beautiful, and there are ample social spaces for employees. The location is incredible and I love that the company sometimes does activities or events to integrate with the community. This is a great place to have a first job or to be an executive, but not so much in the middle, as growth is difficult.

What I dislike about the company

Opportunities for growth are extremely rare. HR is making improvements in 2018 to work on this, as they are aware of the issue. Because of this, turnover is common, making the jobs of those who stay frustrating to keep training people over and over again. It also leads to information loss as people leave. There is a clear "us" and "them" separation from higher management and the rest of the staff, and I think the growth gap has something to do with that. Providing more opportunities to go to paid conferences, take college courses, have mentors, and have more time off for creative pursuits would be to the benefit of the entire company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • HR feels so far removed -- the majority of the team is in Boston now so employees don't feel as connected or as comfortable with HR as they used to

What I like about the company

Great travel opportunities, great coworkers

What I dislike about the company

Whether you have been at the company for 6 years, or are just starting out, you will likely make the same salary. The company doesn't treat people who have been there for a long time with seniority - there aren't many opportunities to grow. Moving around the company laterally ensures that you will always continue to make the same salary.
