Pros

This is a little company on the way up. There is so much to do to help it grow that it is easy to have a big impact. I am also learning new things every day. The people are wonderful. There are no politics and there is a high level of trust.

Cons

If you want a company with really well defined processes and a lot of structure, this isn't the place for you.

    Pros

    The employees are generally very 'team' oriented without some of the cut throat type of behavior at some bigger companies like Intel. Management really attempts to treat the people in their groups fairly and respectfully.

    Cons

    Due to the present economic 'realities', pay has really not kept up to pace with where they should be relative to similar positions within the industry.

    Advice to Management

    If Cascade wants to hang on to their most valuable people, management needs to seriously consider paying them fairly for the value that they bring to the company. Some very valuable people have already left to go work for companies that better compensate for their skills and talents. Also, the review process and the rewards (pay increases) that come from the review process needs to be consistently applied. I recieved an excellent review (in the high 80's percentile) and did not recieve a raise in pay where others did recieve a raise simply because they had not gotten one in a long time.

    Pros

    Having a source of income is a good thing.

    Cons

    Living on unemployment income is way more favorable than this working for this company. Medical benefits were reduced year after year. Management is incompetent and unfair. At one point we were promised profit sharing but it never panned out. Everything is about bottom line. Sure, Cascade has a lot of cash and has faired pretty well during tech downturn but they wouldn't dare think of using any of it to make employees happy.

    Advice to Management

    Retain and keep the good managers. Don't fire them. Re-think the current management.
