Crazy but fun

Senior Technology Manager (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsLots of room to learn, plenty of opportunity. Lots of collaboration and the chance to work on completely new projects. I really enjoyed my time there, and learned a TON. Plenty of opportunity to work with senior management closely, if you were working on strategically aligned projects.

ConsAbsolutely crazy as everything crashed... no work/life balance, disregard for long term business reality in pursuit of short term immediate financial gain.

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

The biggest disappointment, was seeing the change from being a banker and… Advice to Senior Management: No banker needs to be pushy. Lay-off. It's a burden… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
