Pros

Tons of perks, phenomenal health plan, orca card, they provide beverages, snacks, lunches several times per month, stock options, excellent work/life balance.

Cons

Lack of potential for upward movement in sales based career. They promoted some questionable people to team leaders which was a little demoralizing. They change comp plans way to frequently and keep throttling what salespeople can make.

Advice to Management

Keep it up. You guys rock! I? loved working there and would have stayed working there, but I needed out of Seattle to get some sun!

    Pros

    Enthusiastic upper management who clearly communicates to company mission and goals. Fun to work with so many talented people. Senior management makes a point of recognizing employees who go above and beyond and make great contributions to the company.

    Cons

    Average pay and benefits. Company expanding very quickly and playing catch-up to accomodate new growth - both in terms of office space and development infrastructure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to be transparent and foster employee growth opportunities.

    Pros

    Flexible hours; good immediate coworkers; nice office amenities and snacks

    Cons

    Management still thinks the company is a start-up even though it's a public company. Management said that they will always pay below the market value range of a position. So if you're happy with $35k to $40k on average, this is your place. If you expect $60k, good luck. Also, don't expect people to be professional here. The coworkers (mainly the sales team and management) take everything personally and do not conduct themselves in a professional manner. If you're a factual person, this is not the place for you. The company functions very business backwards (i.e. develop the website but don't consider or work on how it'll actually impact day-to-day work). Also, for a small company, communication is very poor between small teams (at most 10 people) nonetheless between departments. If you're fresh out of college, this is a place to start, but don't plan on developing a career here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they're deserved. Don't be locked into review cycles. If someone is doing an amazing job, do something to reward and retain the talent.
