Fantastic training ground for business management

Senior Business Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsIn a business management role, you'll have a high level of autonomy and potential to make significant financial impacts immediately. They will give you an extraordinary amount of responsibility right away because the company is growing faster than they can hire.

ConsVery stressful having to answer questions from upper management all the time on your business' performance. Data reporting systems are rudimentary, so you'll have to learn how to pull your own data and process it, which can be very time consuming. Also, this isn't the place to go if you like to receive positive reinforcement regularly. They won't recognize your work unless you do something groundbreaking.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest heavily in better data reporting infrastructure. Consider putting more emphasis on a culture of mentorship and positive reinforcement.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
