It was great while it lasted

Senior Marketing Specialist (Former Employee)
Irvine, CA

ProsTo employees, the company was 100% transparent (perhaps, if they treated shareholders the same, the bank might still be in business.)

ConsAs a whole staff lacked passion. Also, to avoid layoffs, employees were transferred to new teams whether they posses core competencies or not. This in turn, hurt the overall work produced. Very difficult for promotion outside of Seattle.

Advice to Senior ManagementNothing is going to bring back this place

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
