    Current Employee - Marketing Specialist in Seattle, WA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Resume padding, Cool people come to promote their books & music, nice location in seattle

    Cons

    Really depends on your manager, but very abrasive culture. don't be surprised if you are expected to read your manager's mind. Hypocritical leadership...everyone is socially awkward to some degree. lots of introverts...play a lot of guessing games

    Advice to Management

    Actually set goals with your employees...and follow them. Don't just expect them to do things for you on a day to day basis.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits
    There is a great deal of in-house hiring
    Employees come from very diverse backgrounds; most employees are very nice.
    Great tools provided

    Cons

    Work can be repetitive
    Constantly change work processes
    Lot of walking involved
    Training for workers who have been with the company for many years is almost nonexistent
    Pay cap for warehouse workers

    Advice to Management

    Take time before changing the work processes. You need time to understand them.
    Make changes parsimoniously. Make sure they are applied across the board.
    Performance metrics alone won't help you. Performance is all about processes (i.e., managers' job). Use them to improve the processes and not to reward employees.
    Teach your employees as many tasks as possible to avoid repetitive tasks.
