They pass up employees with more skill and desire

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

ProsI felt appreciated as an employee. Upper management frequently prasied my hard work and I felt like I was a valued team member for the most part. I liked that we got reviews on time when we were due for them and felt that the raises they gave were appropriate.

ConsWhile they say they believe in promoting from within the company, they screwed me over more than once for a position that I was well qualified for. They let the employee who was leaving change their mind and comeback and no one told me about this until 4 weeks later, when I had already heard just through gossip. This employee was eventually fired, by the way...

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within and foster a learning environment for people who want to grow within the industry!
