    Pros

    Good benefits with the City of Seattle
    Customer Service oriented
    Relaxed atmosphere (sometimes too relaxed)

    Cons

    Company does not hire management from within
    Leadership lacks leadership
    Communication between Executive leaders and managers and employees is non exsistent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A great deal of emphasis was placed by the CEO to its Executive team for communication but that was lost. Directors on up need to get out of your office lead from up front. Your visibility is not there. Meet with your team. Establish working goals and accountability requirements. Hold employees accountable for their goals and job requirements. Reward those that go beyond the average. Council those that do not perform. Clean house with those that do not perform when provided corrective actions. In other words, lead.
