    Great people

    Senior E-commerce Architect (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsAlmost everybody is nice. Very very low turnover. Treat employees as human beings. Company that strongly cares and does try to make the area a better place.

    ConsWorking in technology there was not too exciting. Being a manufacturing company the processes tend to be slow. Also a strong reliance on delegating any interesting/important projects to third party consultants instead of relying on internal knowledge and building on it (big downer).

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward employees and rely on them, allow them to grow and feel worthy instead of delegating to external consultants.

    Good people, bad benefits and no real room for career growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsThe people that work here are the only reason that this company is still around. Almost everyone is nice and a pleasure to work with. Management styles, while vary, tend to lean towards more laid back nature. The casual dress code was a major plus.

    ConsI've seen posts that say it's great to work for them based on benefits and perks (esp for families), but I'm not sure where their base is coming from. They barely pay enough to survive at entry level, nor did they offer a chance for an increase in pay in 2 years because of a "raise freeze". Said freeze was continued even though the CEO claimed the company had rebounded near their highest revenue ever. They cut back on medical benefits so that they are now almost rediculous. Sure they offer 401k and whatnot, but what corporations don't? They don't offer any perks like bus passes or, well, anything. They offer 0 weeks vacation for your first year of employment (though, they are willing to let you work overtime to make up for a few days off), and then it's industry standard 2 weeks (1 week in some departments).
    So really, I'm just a little confused when they say it's a great place to work. Compared to my history, the benefits and perks are now well below most companies and the pay isn't enough for a family without another income.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop cutting benefits and remove the raise freeze. Keeping the freeze, esp when you are trending towards 300M in revenue (your highest in the last decade), is essentially giving everyone pay demotions every year because cost of living is still increasing.

    Very un-organized

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Henderson, NC

    ProsThere are some good people working at PCF. I have a wonderful Manager. Benefits are good. Insurance is great, 401k is average. Vacation is good after one year

    ConsIt is very un-organzied. you never know if you will have a job tomorrow...There is a large turn over in management and production employees. There isn't any retirement.

    Advice to Senior Managementcommunicate with employees. listen to their pros and cons.... More than a couple hours of training.Make the job seam worth while. It's hard to live on $8.00 per hour, With gas and food going up everyday. Try to be straight and fair with everyone.

    Pacific Coast Feather is a great company to work for.

    Customer Account Administrator (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsThe corporate culture is very supportive. The company is very flexible with time-off. Special projects are assigned periodically. Each November, the company conducts a United Way Pledge Drive, with very high response levels.

    ConsAs with all companies, this company is currently experiencing the challenges brought about by the current economic situation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI appreciate the weekly updates provided to employees at all levels of the organization on a weekly basis. This shows a level of transparency that is not common.

    Pacific Coast Feather is overall a great place to work.

    IT Systems Support (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsPacific Coast Feather, Corp office - Great benefits and work environment, there is a general feel of family promoted among the employees. In most departments there is a general expectation of personal responsibility and so micro managing is not the norm. At times it may feel as though I work for myself. There is an employee gym along with locker room facilities. There is also a game room with ping pong, air hockey and foosball. Pacific Coast Feather will give people chances other companies won't. I.e. take people with less experience and train them. Pacific Coast Feather is a great place for non management employees to gain experience needed before moving to a higher paying company. The employee discounts on company bedding products are awesome. Sometimes 50 to 70 percent. Over all Pacific Coast Feather is a great place to work.

    ConsBecause of low textile industry profits, respective jobs tend to be below what other industries pay for the same basic skill sets. Because of the lower profits, fewer people are expected to carry a larger work load than other companies might expect. There is a majority of long term employees in management, (10 to 25 years and so the chance of advancement may be determined by a retirement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove to a strictly pay by performance system rather than a yearly percentage increase.
    Pay bonuses by performance rather than flat percentage per year.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
