Can be a wonderful working environment but politics and budget issues limit mobility

Hourly Payroll and Retirement Analyst (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsMany individual departments are full of capable and dedicated team members that make coming to work a joy.

ConsThe central office can be a volatile place because of budget cuts and school staff that don't appreciate the work of the central office employees. Promotions are promised and then don't materialize because of budgetary reasons.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease keep your promises of promotion or don't offer them in the first place. Also find a way to get more money from the state!

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