Pros

innovative culture, chill environment, chill dress code, company subsidized café with organic food, respectful co workers

Cons

unless you negotiate well going in, don't expect a further opportunity at end of year review unless you are an executive
not all managers provide a challenging environment
salary is low so stock is vital
benefits are great
Orca card
shuttles between buildings and to train station
great tools to do your work re IT
people are predominantly nice

Advice to Management

instead of signing bonus split over two years for the under $100K employees, make it one lump sum for one year

    Pros

    They keep you informed about what is going on in the company benefits are great and pay is getting better

    Cons

    They go threw employees like no other company I have ever seen I was only there for a little over a month and employees were dropping like flies it is a concern for everyone that works there everyone who works there asks how much longer till their number is up I personally know of at least 18 employees being fired just since I was there some deserved it but most where excellent employees that were fired for ridiculous reasons like stretching, telling management a concern they had, and even for writing the wrong date on a piece of paper for overtime.if you're honestly considering working for this company do yourself a favor only plan on it being extremely temporary while you look for another job....unless of course you are absolutely perfect and flawless in every way just because you show up when you're supposed too and work at 110% is not enough for this company!!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    If you have an employee that is a great employee you should keep then working for you and not make it impossible to keep working hard for you
