    Pretty good place to work.

    Maintenance Technician (Current Employee)
    Redmond, WA

    ProsThey value their people and their work.
    Like to promote from within and will take people back two and three times.

    ConsPay raises have been small in the last couple of years.
    Too many engineers sitting around trying to reinvent the wheel.
    Sometimes managers like to operate like it's a fiefdom.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet's focus less on 'lean' and more on just producing the product.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible company & management

    Receptionist (Former Employee)
    Redmond, WA

    ProsIt was a pay check, and I got more experience to put on the resume

    ConsI was treated so awful, and I wasn’t the only one. About half of the company is temporary workers, who get promised things and then chopped at the last minute. I had to train my own replacement, no one wants to get to know anyone because the high turn-over, it is a competitive and unprofessional environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are human, try treating them that way. Stop putting people on salaries and pushing them to work crazy long hours, stop hiring temps and not giving them benefits, and simply be nice. Say good morning every now and then. To the people at the top and in corporate land, I don’t know how you sleep at night. You people are so greedy and selfish.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
