    Former Employee - Human Resources in Bothell, WA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There are parts of the company that are doing work that can greatly improve peoples' everyday life. Benefits are very good

    Cons

    Management tends to want "yes people". They don't necessarily like to hear honest opinions when a highly experienced employee feels the group is heading in the wrong direction. When the "plan" doesn’t work out and the employee is proved to have been right; the whole situation is swept under the rug. After a change in management I clearly was seen as being highly compensated; and was a target for being layed off.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity should really be a reality and not just a catch phrase in an employee hand book.
