Unreachably high expectations, Unwilling to reign in monstrous managers
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – June 6, 2016
Many projects with interesting work. Opportunities abound with work. If you like to work and have no life outside of work, this is the place for you.
There was a tremendous variety of projects to work on. Colleagues were there to help and share techniques to complete high quality jobs.
The hardest part of the job was working for a poor manager whose reputation was well known as someone who would make your life difficult if not miserable. The best part of the job was when I was released from the position and no longer had to deal with the individual in question.
Overall a fine place to work if you are a robot, lacking feelings and desire to do anything but work. Additionally, since annual growth targets were unrealistic, firings and layoffs have become the norm. Expect no understanding, mercy, or pity from this bunch of wolves.
I learned what type of manager not to be.
I found out how awful some managers could be.
