Good people, interesting work, too hierarchical
Principal Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Waltham, MA – March 3, 2019
I feel confident that we are working to have the best products in the business, and colleagues are high quality and decent to work with. The management may be well-meaning, but the structure seems highly hierarchical and overly compartmental. The management focus is on tasks rather than people. The company purports to highly value innovation, but it seems to be valued only in some hands, not others. I am an individual contributor (non-management, not architect/technical director track) with a great deal of experience. Rather than taking advantage of my experience by allowing my input at higher levels, they tend to simply expect it to mean I should be able to do the same things junior developers can do, but much faster. The result is that I feel under-valued.
