Review Summary
AP & AR Clerk (Former Employee) –  Chelmsford, MA11 December 2018
Great Company culture, but some entrenched management more interested in a stock payoff than longevity. In my opinion the company may change hands soon.

Ok
Director (Former Employee) –  Lowell, MA3 December 2018
Mixed feelings working at Captivate. Individual contributors are great, but management supply is severely lacking. The expectation is to take the reigns and run with ideas, but when you do leadership severely demeans the activity and doesn't support innovation at all.
Pros
Pay, remote work opportunities
Cons
Leadership, follow through

Decent place to work
n/a (Current Employee) –  NY23 February 2018
Good vacation time.
Benefits aren't great.
Company is financially healthy.
Decent work-life balance.
Good people.
senior management seems a tad scattered right now.
Rate of churn seems a little high.
Lack of communication on key workplace items (layoffs, reorgs, if we met out quarterly sales goals). Clear, company-wide communication on high level items needs to improve.
Pros
vacation time
Cons
senior management seems scattered right now

Inconsistent management
Wasted my time (Former Employee) –  Lowell, MA20 January 2018
If you know what you are doing you get laid off. Management plays favorites and would rather be surrounded by young kids who work cheap and don't question what's going on. The product does not work as sold, poorly designed and installed.
Pros
it's a job
Cons
no job security

Product doesnt work as sold
wasted my time (Former Employee) –  Lowell, MA20 January 2018
Cut backs and bad decisions by new VP's coming in. The product does not work as sold. Full of outages and bad performance. Managers play favorites and favor young kids who work cheap. Anyone who knows what they are doing gets laid off.
Pros
it's a paycheck when you need one
Cons
none

Sales Planner (Current Employee) –  New York, NY11 October 2017
Everyone at the company is great and very hands on when training. The management is very helpful with all the day to day. The Company is so much fun that know one wants to leave which means minimal advancement opportunities for some.

Team Environment
Online Instructor (Current Employee) –  Jamaica16 December 2014
Institution has a team lecturing environment where ideas are shared collaboratively among the various course lecturers. Very good environment.

Courses are supervised by a course coordinator and the teaching load is shared among lecturers, although grading is independent. This exposes students to various teaching methodologies and strategies which allows for a more robust learning experience.

Editorial Intern (Former Employee) –  Chelmsford, MA8 September 2014
A typical day was to research specific needs for an article, summarize top stories in different cities in the U.S. for news screens, photoshop photos and create captions for top news stories. I also managed social media accounts such as Twitter, Facebook, and Wildfire for the company.
