    House of Cards

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAutonomy
    Nice fellow employees to work with

    ConsUpper management sits in ivory tower unaware of reality in the field. Management by intimidation.
    Zero training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out and look at your business. Especially look at managers in Eastside operations- they manipulate numbers to keep locations open to preserve bonuses. Regional Manager of area hides and never is around nor has a clue of what he is doing. Many locations are poorly run.

    Internally flawed organization

    Data Processor (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsThere seemed to always be a sense of high employee moral within the organization. Some of the employees were family so that atmosphere was very dominant and apparent.

    ConsThere always seemed to be this inherent glass ceiling within the organization and growth potential seemed limited at best. They didn't seem inclined to higher internally and there were a number of communication and service gaps that would haunt them in vital portions of the day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to develop a more empowered employee base due to the limited capacity they you have at your disposal. It will save you from having to stretch your workload.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No hours and you drive your own car and use your own gas.

    Lot Attendant (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsThe job is not that difficult, Good group of fellow employees, you work alone without someone on your back....except for the GPS of course.

    ConsYou drive your own car to the lots and you are not reimbursed for gas. Limited to work under 25hrs a week. They blame Obama Care for cutting employee hours and not providing benefits, which is total BS. The Employer mandate hasn't even gone into effect and they were providing benefits before. This is just an excuse and a perfect opportunity for a greedy company to rake in more dough for the top.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lie to your employees about why you cut their hours and benefits. There are companies that have way fewer employees than you and make a whole lot less than you but still provide options for their employees....btw I love Obama Care, it saved my life from a serious heart condition. Thank you Obama. ��

    Lack of training. Diamond Parking is all about making the owner money, money, money.

    City Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsWork schedule was ok. Was able to work outside for part of each day. Also was able to work with people in a city environment.

    ConsUnderpaid for the work required of you. You never know when the ax might be coming. No training at all. Poorly run company. I was the 4th person in my position in 5 years!!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo public so you have to have some kind of HR rules
