Pros

free on site gym, 25 cent arancianta, bowling alley, intelligent and interesting coworkers, in my case-amazing supervisors : real leadership, real genuine, and real humanity. paid ORCA card, affordable in house cafeteria, convenient downtown location

Cons

All the amazing, intelligent, people who you will learn from and become part of your family will get laid off. Then you will get laid off. Every year I worked there, I witnessed a Christmas layoff and eventually fell victim to the same fate in the Spring. Management seems to miss the mark all the way around and don't understand the value in personnel.

    Cons

    Ideas never used or just help on the back burner HR lacks professionalism and is behind in the times with compensation lack of morale and energy due to bad management Hiring friends to work for you that have no experience is so wrong no management training

    Pros

    Great location on the waterfront and great restaurants.

    Cons

    Their management is all about skating to where the puck used to be not to where it's going to be. They seem to have an insecurity problem and want to be cool, but have no idea what cool looks like.
