There are plenty of opportunities at the Seattle DoubleDown office to expand your skill set, become an industry expert, and be part of a diverse growing team. Some of the benefits are quite nice; lunch, organic and healthy foods, nice working space and proximity to transit. Some of the new management team is strong.
There is still some legacy bad will towards the parent company here. Many are slow to change and some of the management seems to have a hard time making decisions. Some of the benefits are sub-par; health care is expensive, for example. Compensation at start is reasonable, but employees that have been there for some time would say that the company falls short on their bonus program, stock grants, and compensation adjustments.
Advice to Management
Make sure all of your executive team is listening. Some clearly are, and the teams moral is reflected in that. Others on the management team have a hard time making decisions that cause more turmoil amongst the regular employes. Second bit of advice would be to directly empower the staff. All of the right tools are in place at DDI to do this, but management doesn't seem to regularly take advantage of this.
