Challenging environment with high turnover
Finance (Former Employee) – Lexington, MA – January 19, 2013
Good growth Company, but Finance is a sweat shop with lack of decision making and poor leadership. In general the people are pretty good, but no one stays. Turnover is extremely high, part of the reason so many jobs are open. Plenty of room to negotiate salary and bonus, the Company will overpay. They are liberal with sign on bonuses but don't expect to be rewarded once you are in the door. Despite the claims, bonuses don't exceed 100%, so don't believe the hype that you have significant upside.
Finance is a reporting function only, there is zero strategic partnership. Expect to work a significant number of hours just trying to get the basics done. Good opportunity to come in for a year or two and then jump ship for something bigger.
Free lunches are nice along with free drinks, but I'd rather have a meaningful job and work normal hours than to get a couple of perks, work 80 hours and have a mind numbing job.
free lunch, can negotiate big compensation
lack of leadership, terrible work/life balance
