Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bellevue, WA

Pros* Bellevue office has some really smart, innovative and friendly people
* Snacks and fun things to do provided by Facilities, HR and employee run committee
* Very casual environment; NERF rules!
* Good location
* Technology provided is good quality

Cons* no possibility of promotion in most departments
* internal communication between departments and between management and employees is not sufficient
* Employees in general don't seem very happy

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease remember that this company is made up of people who are incredibly smart and most of them are just waiting for someone they can follow. Your employees need feedback that can be acted on and defined goals to work on. Saying "Make it so" works for Picard, but not for you.
