Hidden values

Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsTravel, exposure to mutliple cultures, multiple ethnicities - in a positive way.

Consthe cons are in some ways a benefit - hidebound, but you always have safety mechanisms that are redundant to extremes, tends to be very male oriented, but intolerant of harrassments of any type.

Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes consensus can be harmful - if you only get the people who want to please you to answer you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
