I had big hopes for this company...no more.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThe building is a neat converted factory that feels very "Seattle". The people I work with at my level and below are very talented and genuinely decent people.

ConsThe pay is well below market and most people tolerate it because they were relocating to the area and needed to take something, anything- at least, that's h ow it is in the group I joined. I knew from reading these reviews that taking a job here was a risk. However, it wasn't until a few weeks in that I realized all the problems behind the scenes. You'll hear a lot about people being empowered to lead projects and move ideas forward, but I haven't seen that. Projects that get approved are ones that fit the narrow vision of leaders. Don't expect strategic planning and reviews- things seem to be prioritized in silos with no regard to the impact on other parts of the business or long-term plans.

The emperor has no clothes.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere isn't leadership at the executive level. Having expertise in a technical or operational area is sufficient to launch a business but doesn't qualify you to lead an organization of the company's current size. Be realistic and humble and bring in some experienced strategists and leaders before it is too late. I am looking to leave after less than 6 months; I'm not alone- we're here because we are stuck, not because we believe in you.

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