Good Job, Good People, Losing its luster.

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsGetty hires good competent people wih generally good attitudes.
Great health/dental/vision benefits.
Allows domestic partner benefits at low cost.
Great location in the heart of Fremont.
Not your average company, very lively and much like Fremont.
Spends money on new technologies instead of finding ways keep old technology alive.
Every employee has their ideas considered.

ConsGetty while still very successful seems to be using the economic downturn to make cuts, this may be due to the fact that Getty is now privately owned.
Slowly starting to care more about the company and less about the employee.
Overall employee moral is lowering.
401k matching has ceased.
Bonuses are now 100% Company performance based(used to be 50% individual performanced based)

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be nice to see management stand up and not always simply go in the direction that senior management is telling them to go. Lately it seems like there is an attitude of "because I said so."

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
