No opinion of CEO

Pros

- great prime time location in downtown seattle
- free bus pass
- medical package
- ESPP
- most of the people are great

Cons

- no room for growth
- nepotism
- too conservative
- senior management is unreasonable with personal requests
- maternity leave is too short
- low balls pay
- integrity is not observed here when people play blame games
- some mid management micro-manage and could take a management class on how to work with employees
- too many rules here, it seems that people have to watch their backs with what they do

Advice to Management

people should think twice before coming here to work.

there are depts that are far more conservative than others. saw a few too many promoted that did not deserve it and others that do deserve it- they get overlooked because of nepotism/brown nosing.

IS dept is too corrupt and a very high turn over rate. some mid management people need to learn how to observe their team members. (insert favortism here)

other depts after observing, have it worse. some depts dont have any growth because people are so comfortable with their jobs for 10+ years. so the younger generation, start looking elsewhere, there is no such thing as growth here. oh and pay, it's insulting.

this is an old school company, i suggest that upper management take some time and talk to their employees and see what they really think. a lot of people leave because of this negligence.

    Pros

    Company is very stable and secure. Never made any layoffs in over 30 years. Benefits package is decent, which includes transportation to work.

    Cons

    All male employees must wear a tie, even the developers who never see clients. When you get a promotion, no raise comes with it. Many supervisors and managers seem to be yes-men. Explanations of why new policies have been introduced are extremely poor. Lots of smoke and mirrors.

    Advice to Management

    Question your own managers before unleashing these absurd new policies to your departments. Promote people who are able to communicate well.

    "Not a Fun place to work, "Professionals""

    Pros

    The only good thing is the medical coverage they provide which covers the whole family for free.

    Cons

    More emphsis on the "Professional" apperance than the actually work being done. Many of the communications are not getting to the senior management. Many of the promotions place people in leadership position who does not have experience in that area they are in charge of. There is also lots of politics, the people who are promoted played it well. Also the pay is below average from the same position in other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting from within is great, but place the people who actually have experience in the area they are in charge of, also promote for merit rather than how good they sound. The company says that the employees are the company's most important asset, but the pay don't reflect that.
