Pros

Speakeasy is a machine that turns smart people into talented people. After a year or two you will likely be far more advanced at your skill set.

Cons

It's very hard to get promotions and salary increases at Speakeasy. You really need to play hard ball (preferably when you get in) in order to get any kind of a raise. As a result, many of the highly talented staff have been leaving.

Advice to Management

Focus more on development of culture and creating a fun atmosphere. Also try to outline a clear path that indicates how to get promoted.

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers, great work environment, perfect location. Made some great connections ans long lasting friends while working at Speakeasy. Very helpful in lost situations.

    Cons

    Management needs to be rebuilt. Focusing on what is making the company excel, would be key. Management is too focused on keeping long time(overpaid) employees happy. Rather than out with the old and in with the new.

    Advice to Management

    Make some changes in how you treat your employees. People will start jumping ship if, such changes are not made. Bruce is a great guy, just think his heart is in the wrong location.

    Pros

    Very laid back and liberal atmosphere, flexible as well. Good benefits. Many opportunities within the company (although I haven't advanced yet because I haven't found a good fit.)
    Excellent location in down town Seattle just a couple blocks away from the market and very close to all bus routes.
    Company provides transportation pass.

    Cons

    Due to the location, everyone gets seated together. There are no cubicles or many offices (except for the higher-ups) so they literally have tables next to each other and people sit inches away from each other. Kinda looks like a computer lab. No sound barriers so it gets kinda loud when you're on the phone with someone and people next to you are talking or yelling etc...

    Advice to Management

    I am very satisfied with working at Speakeasy and I really like it. I am getting tired of doing phone support though, so I am interested in other opportunities within the company.
