Pros

The pay is decent that is literally the only plus

Cons

No stability
Constant threats from upper management
They love writing people up
Very, very limited on personal time allowed to take off
Do not accept doctors notes for illnesses
Ruled by favoritism
60 hour weeks even outside of peak
Shifts are awful- there is no family/work balance
HR never does their job and if you have a problem it takes days to fix and multiple tries
known problems with their equipment that causes problems for employees never gets fixed
Favorites are allowed to walk around and do nothing

Advice to Management

Quit acting like you are better than everyone else and actually do your job. Learn how to support your people and actually listen to what they have to say

    Pros

    Ping Pong tables, smart coworkers, Seattle is beautiful in the summer.

    Cons

    I heard Seattle is not as great during the other seasons. Depending on what team you're on, the work can be a little boring, as well as the people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you have the right boss and things align well for you. There is no shortage of opportunity to get involved in pretty cool projects and if you like a high pace of change this is a great place to dive in and make a difference.

    Cons

    If you're in operations understand that the operation runs 24/7. Holidays are just like any retail position, i.e. your working. Generally speaking to move up, the company will ask you to relocate, and if you have a family, that may be something to consider.

    Advice to Management

    People, not metrics, drive success.
