Great company

Human Resources Director (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsDynamic, incredible opportunites for your career and interesting work. Always pushing the envelope and never statisfied with the status quo. You have a lot of autonomy to make a difference . great people and always challenged by really smart and passionate people

ConsA little too focussed on process and measurement and not enough focus on the Customer and Competions Culture still too much based on individual accountabily and heros not enough reinforcement through compensation for teamwork

Advice to Senior ManagementRevisit the performance review system creates too much internal competition and takes focus of the customer and the competition. Cut back on all of the internal meeting especailly those which require to much preperation and limit the amount of powerpoints

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