Okay place to start, horrible place to stay
Software Engineer II (Current Employee) – Tewksbury, MA – October 5, 2017
Okay place to start out your career. Career advancement really depends on what role and department you manage to start with. If you start at the wrong place, at the wrong time, with the wrong role, no matter how hard you work, if you don't have "visibility" advancing will be nothing short of a miracle.The red tape you have to go through is ridiculous. It's one thing to adhere to government regulations, it's another to add unnecessary BS on top of that just to pat yourself on the back and say "look what we're doing". Most of the people I've worked with have been good. The managers tend to be horrible.
Work-life balance sometimes ignored, Poor middle management, Some programs have little to no visibility which affects career advancement, Tech isn't as advanced as they'd like you to believe
