Some of the benefits and compensation programs

No fixed desk policy so we integrate well

Accepting we are human and can make mistakes. Helping each others when we needed the most

Review from Sales Dept

Leaders are inspiring and innovative

Review from Operations Dept

unlimited paid time off and comfortable setting

Review from Operations Dept

People and focus on the big picture

Intelligence is high. People want to do well.

What needs to change to make the company culture better?

There is no communication or leadership. Plans are not communicated. There is zero opportunity to work with colleagues on something that is not directly billable to a customer. No team collaboration or group learning.

Review from Engineering Dept

For remote workers, the draconian travel policy. The company is concentrated in Cambridge, MA, but if you are remote, you are never allowed to travel there, ever, per the travel policy.

Review from Sales Dept

More efficient, faster decisions, dont wait for the competition to come and eat your lunch
