Pros

Advice to Management

Yes, you are a "fun" and "young" office. Don't forget that your young interns are only a couple years younger than many of your employees.

    Pros

    Lots of new projects and ideas to work on. This company has great potential, and Richard is a good innovator of ideas.

    Cons

    This place has some of the worst political drama that I have ever seen, Most of the management believes in lying to the employees, and constantly play against one another, the management in Ca never comes to the bellevue office to check up on this branch, please, please do not work here.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time addressing the needs of your employees, the Bellevue office handles the registrar side of the business, this is your cash-cow, take it seriously and show the employees in that office that you value them.


  2. "A lot of pressure because there is a lot to do."
