As an engineering manager, I can attest it's hard to close req's here in Boston. There are many engineers, but also a ton of tech companies, with something like 2.8% unemployment. You either let a req sit open for months, or pay top dollar.

Personally I would have rather seen them expand in Cambridge, but this is great news nonetheless.

Aren't most of the buildings in FP pretty old? Going to have to expand the bathrooms...

At least it'd be easy to get to Cambridge since it's near SS.
