Very out of touch

Project Manager (Current Employee) Bellevue, WA

ProsWell respected brand
Company does make money
Do promote education amongst employees
A good place to retire - if you are really old, and need a place to squat - this is it.

ConsVery Autocratic
Employees have absoutly no voice in anything - unless you are a manager - you better be a great order taker, and have no thoughts of having to think on your own work or ideas.
Other than senior management - this is a mindless place to work
There is ZERO chance of making any kind of a difference unless you are Sr. Director level or above - and even then, your ability to influence is minimal - everything comes from the top-down.
Prescribed vacations - even for salaried employees - they force vacations on salaried employees in order to make numbers - feels a bit like working at McDonalds at times
I would never recommend this as a good place to make much of a difference

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower employees to do great work - managers who have their positions need to continue to earn them versus seeing being a manager as a rite fo passage. Time to self-reflect, and clean house to get some younger perspective - managers are all way too old and are out of touch with current technology and styles

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
