    "Great PTO, but it's useless."

    I have been working at NWEA full-time

    Pros

    The ability to work remotely is nice.

    Cons

    We get great PTO! The only thing is, if you take off a week or more, you have to find someone to cover for you, because you are responsible to get the work done. So, it's really difficult to take vacation time, because you are so stressed with working more hours before or after your vacation to make up the work. (I don't think it's right to ask for someone else to cover for you.)

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees this way!!

    I worked at NWEA

    Pros

    I had a great manager and I liked my team. If you get a full time position you get some great benefits. At the time I was there, they offered a 15% contribution to a 403(b) (not a match, just 15% of your salary on top of your normal pay) and more PTO than I've heard of any other company offering.

    Cons

    There is a lack of standard processes across different teams which is frustrating at best and concerning at worst.
