I have been working at Cascade Designs, Inc. full-time
My department is very laid back and interacting with supervisors is easy and friendly. There is a lot of flexibility to take time off. Even at short notice.
Some departments are under skilled and that can affect your work. If your department has to work with another and that other produces poor engineering drawings, or concepts, or products, whatever, then it is on you to fix it or deal with it. That happens a lot.
The company is really laid back and no one is ambitious. Once you're hired on, expect to stay in the same job the entire time. Do not expect to get a raise or a change in responsibility. Some people are okay with that and they'll work there for 20+ years.
The culture and values are there. They talk about them all the time at the company meetings. But no one follows them in the slightest.
Advice to Management
Be more ambitious! See the workers and reward them!
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cascade Designs, Inc. (Seattle, WA) in March 2015.
I applied online and received an email for an interview two weeks after. The interview was with the two hiring managers for the position, and they were very friendly. I could tell that I probably wasn't the right candidate for the position half way through the job, but they were very nice the whole time. They said they would contact me if any further interview was necessary, which never came.
