    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    I worked at HomeStreet full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    New regime is very interested in moving the company forward... things were changing for the better, but I opted to leave prior to those changes being made.

    Cons

    There were challenges based on the financial crisis, which led to stress and unpleasantness... many of the employees had been entitled, but I understand that most of those people have left the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
