    Pros

    The CEO and other top executives know you by your first name and greet you daily.
    Very competitive pay and excellent benefits
    Driven by passion, accountability, customer service, creativity and teamwork.
    Very fun loving group of employees
    Great work/life balance
    Opportunities to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Current turnover seems high--why are good people leaving in marketing and support?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are all wonderful and warm leaders and please continue to grow the organization.

    Good product and staff / sub-standard upper management

    I have been working at Winshuttle

    Pros

    Well established 'core' product business with focus on growth in newer/more powerful technologies and features. Some management has the proper mindset for positioning the organization for growth and getting it 'to the next level', others however...

    Cons

    Key members in upper management seem unable to make tough decisions (i.e. 'ruffle feathers'/ability to hold their staff accountable) to avoid bigger problems later on at the expense of moving company and product to the 'next level'. Upper management seems to be stuck in a mode where they are unable/unwilling to move away from established status quo. Some rank and file ('legacy') staff also have a difficult time adjusting from a simple 'desktop' product to an 'enterprise' product mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address product & sales issues *before* they become critical (hint: avoid poor product design and sales and subsequent staff layoffs) by getting the *right* leaders into the positions that actually drive the necessary changes in the organization before customers, products, and staff suffer any more from their lack of sound/solid decision making. If executive management can't/won't make the necessary decisions, then get them out of the way to let the organization move in the right direction.

    I have been working at Winshuttle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Winshuttle is a small company with large customer base, more than 40,000 global users in 60 countries with 99.99% total satisfaction. world class support, marketing and sales creating heroes while saving millions of dollars to large SAP users.

    Cons

    CXO level customers are skeptical of benefits, consider Winshuttle an excel macro until they find out that the company is driven by this technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hard to say, founders and top management have genuine interest for their employees they promote within, open door policy, zero politics. perhaps reduce growth rate a little that sometimes creates pain.

    Good Company to work for in the Bothell area

    I have been working at Winshuttle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    High level of exposure to different setups from small - large companies. No one project is the same and you're exposed to many different systems and components. A LOT to learn but highly beneficial.

    Cons

    Management needs to listen to their employees better. Lack of Q&A for product releases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more receptive to feedback about fixing product issues. Don't rush product. Make sure it works before it's released.

    Current Employee - Mid-Level Management in Bothell, WA

    I have been working at Winshuttle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best places I've ever worked. We work hard, but are rewarded for it. First company I've ever been at where people do not work on the weekend or send email past 5pm. Most everyone is out of the office by 5pm, except for the IT team. Everyone works really hard and loves their jobs. I'm friends with someone from almost every department.

    Cons

    Benefits are good, but could stand to be improved slightly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lately I feel as though management has not been as transparent as they could be. Be more transparent.

    Pros

    Positive culture, transparent communication about company at all levels - Winshuttle has a good team environment / orientation. Support for programs like "Winnovate" which encourages all levels of employees to look at the business and make contributions to improve operations, sales, marketing, and product.

    Cons

    Sometimes a bit too laid back - people that are not contributing tend to stay a bit too long - culture could be a bit more urgent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now is the time to go for it... the market is there - turn up the heat in terms of sales!

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Pay, benefits, treatment, and seemingly promotion based on BS ability rather than performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire people who are incompetent and not performing in a timely manner, not years after it first comes to your attention. They create a toxic environment when they start taking credit for the work of the people who are actually doing the work.

    Could be a really good company. No brand recognition, been in business for 10 years and no one has heard of us

    Pros

    Desktop products really provide an exceptional ROI, traditional customer base loves us.

    Cons

    Enterprise product is not ready for prime time, relatively small company and departments are cylo'd. Executive management doesn't trust employees enough to make good decisions, all decisions are made at the very top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your VP's, Directors, and Managers to make decisions. Spend $ on brand recognition.
