    Build teams with all a level players, don't try to force talented ones to with the mediocres. Good ones will leave.

    Pros

    A company that values employee's work-life balance. Also, Seattle is one of the best cities to live and work in.

    Cons

    Like working for any other company, you need to be sure this is what you really want to do five days a week, because it is a company of specialists, not generalists.

    Pros

    4 day work week, benefits aren't bad.

    Cons

    Very physical job, if you can't bring it every single day, this job is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of those of us who meet or exceed your high expectations every single day, without fail. Turnover is a huge issue, with an easy solution...if you want to retain the best employees, simply recognize and reward them, and pay them what their worth, instead of only focusing on those employees who can't handle the job. The more you focus on the ones who keep you at the top, the less time you'll spend wasted on turnover. A lot of talented, hard working, and very dedicated people come in and out those doors daily, giving you all they've got for 10 hours...so retaining the right ones should be your top priority.
