Warzone, Petty, Terrible to Employees

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Former Employee - Software Engineer  in  Seattle, WA
Former Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

Pros

average benefits but nothing compared to others in s/w industry (2007-2008 timeframe)

Cons

petty atmosphere, hostile/harassment behavior encouraged by some managers and ignored by others, caught management actually lying to customers and potential customers to get sales (lack of morals/ethics), cutthroat, employees told to be thrifty as reason why there are no good s/w perks in company (ie. frugal) but then treated like slaves (everyone I knew in s/w group wanted out but was too terrified to leave because they believed management spiel that they wouldn't ever get a job again)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

grow up and act like responsible leaders
