A once great company destroyed by poor leadership.

Infrastructure Engineer (Former Employee) Federal Way, WA

ProsGreat and loyal co-workers.
South Puget Sound commute.

ConsTechnology is treated as a necessary evil. Thus they have no clear direction for those that work in IT. Applications, infrastructure and vendors are swapped out on a monthly basis.
No IT Leadership. The current business that makes the money claims the direction conch. The CIO position has been diluted to figurehead by committee position at the director level.
Keep the Lights On: This company used to be known for its innovation. Technology was what set it apart from the competition. The survival mentality has brought up a generation of leadership that will not invest in people or technology. They count on the last remaining remnants of their glory days: The loyalty of their employees.
Arrogance: They offer an IT salary and compensation that is equal to other Timber companies and yet they are only 20 miles away from the top IT companies in the world.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in IT. This does not mean getting an iPad for everyone on the 5th floor. Hire an outside CIO that has technology as a background. Consolidate infrastructure and applications from multiple versions of the same product to one. Compensate your IT employees on the local market value. Correct your manager to employee ratio.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
