Unorganized company
Reporting Analyst (Former Employee) –  Woburn, MAApril 9, 2018
-Established cliques make it hard for new employees to grow -Incredible lack of communication within departments and cross-functionally, specifically with HR/recruiting. -management recognizes the fact that planning is a challenge yet does nothing to address it -we’re supposed to “Focus on solutions, not problems” so most employees don’t care to address the root cause of a problem so that it doesn’t happen again...this makes most situations an unnecessary fire drill -micromanaging...manager wants us to copy her on all deliverables yet clearly can’t properly manage their inbox due to so many emails. We’re expected to respond to all inquiries within 24 hours and that should be applied to all levels of the organization. Mgr can’t keep up with our inquiries as their inbox is flooded with unnecessary emails due to the need to micromanage. -goals for the year are given towards end of 1st quarter, why should employees be hounded about being proactive when management/VPs fail to empower us to do so? -performance reviews are completely opinion based...a company that operates based on data should also be reviewing performance based on data, metrics. -nobody wants to take responsibility for their actions...accountability is a huge issue here -cross functional teams routinely dismiss recommendations and then cause more unnecessary fire drills when they realize that going about a certain task THEIR way didn’t work out as they expected -training does not exist for most roles
Pros
Free water
Cons
Lots of contractors-difficult to build relationships, salary, Hr, parking lot is too small

Operations (Former Employee) –  RemoteMarch 18, 2018
Fast paced, ever changing, sometimes too much. Fortune 500 REIT that cares about the investors. Must know how to play the political corporate games. The employee can at times get lost in the race. Benefits are great, pay not as much.

Typical corporate culture for better and worse.
Attorney (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAMarch 14, 2018
Experiences may vary depending on which part of the business you work, and your specific function.

Benefits, including medical insurance and time off, are quite good.

In the legal department, pay does not scale very well, and there are not many opportunities for advancement. However, many of the managers are reasonably intelligent and understanding of those facts.

As with any workplace, favoritism/personalities can play a factor in raises, bonuses, and promotions.
Pros
Good work/life balance, good health insurance and reasonable time off.
Cons
Pay, opportunities for advancement.

Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Woburn, MAFebruary 6, 2018
It was a great place if you worked in collections however I moved into Marketing and the manager was one of the worst I have ever experienced. I had to leave the company as there was no way to go back to collections.

Good for short term employment
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Woburn, MAJanuary 26, 2018
I worked there in the spring of 2017 as an analyst. I was disappointed that not everyone hired for a specific position would actually work in that department, which in my case was finance, but I found myself supporting the legal team. It also seemed as though they had a high turnover rate.
I found that promotions were limited (and even if earned, they seemed much more of a lateral move); consequently, management was constantly fighting for power.

The team as a whole (even in different departments) seemed nice enough, the facilities were nice (great fresh cafeteria food)
Pros
Fair/Competitive compensation
Cons
High turnover & Management was constantly fighting for power

Since I was contractor they put me as much as possible of work load, not paying overtime. That means maximum load possible to pay minimum possible. I don't know what else to say
