Awesome place to work, though not for everyone.

Department Manager (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsThere's nothing but opportunity to move up, and they're pretty good at noticing different types of skill sets. There's an effort to seek out diversity. You're encouraged to have a real sense of ownership in the company. Learning/moving up is mostly a transparent process; you know where you stand and how to improve.

ConsYou sort of have to be a certain type. Communication majors with perfect looks and bubbly efficiency seem to do well, as well as dudebros.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't get too locked into promoting people who are just really good at self-promoting; seek out diverse folks with alternative viewpoints/ways of getting things done. Don't be so quick to dismiss (it's easy to do so, when everyone wants to work there).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
