Growth - up to a point

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Federal Way, WA

ProsPay was good compared to other companies in the area. Benefits were pretty good too. In most of my jobs here I was allowed a lot of autonomy and flexibility as long as I performed.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent with the company strategy and communicate clearly to the employees. Don't use slogans or "campaigns" to try to get the plan across. Deal with employees as if you think they are capable of understanding, because they actually are highly capable.

    Infrastructure Engineer (Former Employee) Federal Way, WA
