Sinking ship...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsGood people. Casual/laid back environment. Tries to still have the feel of a start-up. Pretty good benefits.

ConsThe Company is going no where. I had zero faith in upper management to get the company back on track.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire upper management and find people who won't run the company into the ground.

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