Started great, now a weight

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsI have never worked with as wonderful of a group as this in my life. I have learned a lot over my career here. If you want to be mentally challenged this is a great place.

ConsPerpetual layoffs.
Failure to innovate. On a good day we are always about six months behind everyone.
Goals set are out of scope for the man hours required.
Far too much bureaucracy to be efficient.

Advice to Senior ManagementManage expectations.
Provide clear direction.
Do not wait until the last minute to tell us news.

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