Cons

Redmond/Seattle area in general aren't as exciting as some other areas like the Bay Area, but nature-wise it's nonetheless stunning

    Pros

    My co-workers are amazing and supportive. You can really tell that they support any outside activities their employees are involved in.

    Cons

    They have a lot of contract workers which sometimes upsets the flow of work sense you are constantly training new workers.

    Advice to Management

    Have more support for your contingent staff...sometimes we don't feel very appreciated.
