Pros

They have a good mission toward Kingdom related work. It's staffed with good people who honestly want to make a difference. The company is pretty flexible when it comes to personal and family issues that come up. They're willing to commit money into new technology so the computer equipment is never more then a few years old. You get a great sense of satisfaction knowing you're able to make a significant difference for some of the smaller clients. Weekly staff meetings include open prayer time when people have a chance to publicly lift up each other and also ask for help. The Christmas party and summer picnic are not to be missed.

Cons

Recent growth has caused too many internal problems. Instead of people working cooperatively there are political agendas which seem to get in the way of advancing the company forward. The sales team commits the company to projects before they have a realistic understanding of everything that is involved. This makes it very difficult for the people who are charged with actually doing the work to succeed. In a way the company sets itself up for failure. Large clients can be very challenging under these conditions. The company may say otherwise, but it really comes down to make a profit at an acceptable margin.

Advice to Management

Ask everyone in the company to provide anonymous input to what they see as barriers with the guarantee of no retaliation for truthful comments.

    I worked at Masterworks full-time

    Pros

    Free food and soda, generous perks to senior-level employees, understanding of family issues and flexible on telecommuting.

    Cons

    Even though the company party line touts otherwise, this is an extremely conservative organization with very traditional ideas about women's roles. The company claims equal gender representation among employees but, in reality, 90% of women employees work in strictly support roles (aka glorified secretaries). The few that aren't don't tend to last more than a year or two, or are extremely bitter and openly complain about poor treatment and open hostility. Complaints to Management/HR are met with acknowledgement that women "struggle" to fit in but no solutions are offered and no changes are made.

    Advice to Management

    The turnover rate here is so extreme that hiring managers say they can no longer find suitable talent locally and have turned to cold calling off LinkedIn trying to recruit people who live across the Bible Belt. Seattle is the 15th largest metropolitan area in the country and growing. Do you truly believe there is a shortage of qualified talent in this area? Please take your heads out of the sand and open your eyes to what is going on at your company. Until you decide to get with the times and stop treating half of your employees poorly, you will continue to lose good talent while failing to hire new ones.

    I have been working at Masterworks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has some really great people. Like the other reviewers said, they're very accommodating to family issues that come up. The building is nice and there are snacks. Good benefits, too. Fun parties and gatherings.

    Cons

    Employees are not valued. Leaders do not listen to the needs of those of us who do the work. There have been lots of layoffs due to "position elimination" then others are hired right away. There's poor communication between departments, resulting in much frustration and confusion. I have been there less than 5 years, but it has been that way ever since I started and it's not getting better, but worse.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that people need better training and that leaders should listen to and respect the people who are working for them. Many of my coworkers feel that they aren't respected, and I think that's a shame.
