      Its a Great Place

      Pros

      Flexibility, cutting edge tech, access to the CEO and other members of the leadership. There are some phenomenally intelligent people at this company and, whats more they are willing to work with you. The product is getting better every quarter and it's a very compelling offering. The mid-management in the sales team, the product team, the engineering teams and the client services team are all rock solid.

      Cons

      There have been a number of re-orgs (I am still here though and just practically speaking, it was imperative that we go through them). The executives and more specifically HR haven't been great at communicating or handling these re-orgs. I agree with many on here that HR (or People 'Strategy') is lacking. I wish we had more features released sooner but that's probably within every organization.

      Pros

      Great coworkers, plenty of smart and hard-working people all around

      Cons

      - 3 “re-orgs” (layoffs) just in 2019 - upper management woefully out of touch with reality and has no understanding of how to keep company afloat and employees motivated - pays below market

      Company Going Downhill

      Pros

      Generally speaking, colleagues are nice and willing to help. There are a lot of great minds to learn from.

      Cons

      RE-ORGS: I've been here for 6+ years. I've watched this company go through reorg after reorg. This past year alone, we've had 3 reorgs which resulted in many layoffs. We've also had to shut down offices (Brazil, India, Detroit). PERKS: Perks have gone downhill. We used to have free weekly lunches. This has gone down to when we just have a company meeting (about bi monthly). Boston Inno Coolest Company To Work For: They forgot to mention that they incentivize their employees to vote by offering gift cards. As a result, engineers write scripts that they run all day to help vote. No Loyalty: I've watched this company layoff people who are extremely dedicated to this company (eat, breathe, and sleep dataxu). There is no loyalty here. They only care about their bottom line and will do what they can stay afloat as revenue has been declining quarter after quarter. Not Recognized for hard work: Don't bother putting in the hours, just work your 8 hour shift. Company doesn't recognize or care that you're going above and beyond.

      One of the fastest declining companies in the Boston area...

      Pros

      1. Unlimited PTO 2. Frequently touts itself as one of the finalists of BostonInno's Coolest companies 3. Generally speaking, coworkers are nice and kind

      Cons

      1 . The only constant at the company is the perennial re-org Can't remember how many re-orgs this place has undergone in the past few years. In some cases, the re-orgs are a result of reduction in force, while in other cases they are due to departures of key stakeholders. Exodus has almost become a constant theme 2 .The exec team doesn't seem to have a concrete clue about how to fix the company except for going after whatever businesses that are trending 3. Did I mentioned that the company has had multiple company-wide employee data breach in recent years? No clear accountability after the incident. Several former employees were on their own to take care of potential identity theft.
