    Current Employee - Visual Data Specialist  in  Bothell, WA
    Current Employee - Visual Data Specialist in Bothell, WA

    Pros

    Free lunch every work day, game rooms with pool / foosball / ping pong / console gaming, kitchenettes with snack and beverages replenished twice per work day

    Cons

    The ratio of full-time employees to contractors is 1:100 for the Bothell office, There is very little chance at promotion for an astonishing amount of work completed beyond what's required

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time to analyze the qualifications and competency of team members, instead of trusting others, before making a decision of who to promote and who to end contract with.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
