    Pros

    Good location.

    Get to work with smart and entertaining people. People work hard.

    Cons

    People work hard and expect family's to cone 2nd. Pay is slightly low. Parent company is very traditional and bureaucratic.

    Benefits need to be brought into the 21st century. No cell phone package while being expected to respond to email at night. Overtime is constant and at mediocre salary levels, that gets old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've all been here so long. Think outside the box. Get fresh ideas. You've built a good thing...but what's next?

    Pros

    Not too stressful, cool office, good location in the city. People are generally nice.

    Terrible pay, company organization is unclear, work is tedious. No one seems to know what is going on, very disorganized. No opportunity for advancement.

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to make a difference, and there is the option to work overtime if you don't mind long hours and weekends, which is not always available with every company so this can be a bonus for some people. In addition, promotions are available and employees are recognized with bonuses, awards, and promotions for their hard work and dedication.

    Cons

    They can ask for long hours, but will compensate with overtime. The work shifts are also very early work times, which can be a plus if you want to get out of the office early, but a minus if you are not an early bird. Good thing the office provides coffee and tea for their employees. There seems to be a constant turnover but this may be due to the entry-level positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better structure and processes and continue to keep employee morale high.

    Pros

    Dress somewhat casual and quiet atmosphere. Lots of time to surf the internet and check your email. You would probably have to be mildly retarded not to be able to succeed at this place.

    Cons

    Horrible managers. Really just the worst managers I've come into contact with. They don't listen to employees, are biased and self absorbed, no clue how to communicate with anyone. Because their product is so technical, I think they were able to get into this role because the company couldn't afford to loose them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the petty personal issues management brings to the table. Make the office more enjoyable. Just because your employees are doing well at their jobs (or mastered your software) doesn't mean you should promote them to managers. Some people just don't know how to manage others.

    Pros

    DOwntown seattle, near a bus line, and a great product

    Cons

    Very dull and un-communicative workforce - I guess like banking software should be. Most can;t wait till the 5o'clock bell, unless you're vested.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    QUit playing with cheap emotions from the work force. Try to bring some vision to the table.
