I have been working at The Standard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Really nice people, good pay, considerate management, good benefits, flexible schedules, nice downtown location--for those in Portland Home Office.

Cons

Company is very slow to embrace change and adopt best practices. People seem to be resigned to the fact that The Standard has limited ability to excel or achieve breakthrough progress.

Advice to Management

Create a clear vision for the future that everyone can get behind, and then drive execution.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Rewards and recognizing talent, stock plan option for all employees, some really supportive supervisors, and always work to be done.

    Cons

    Running on limited employees, work loads increasing without relief in sight, some unsupportive supervisors, long hours expected, and making hard decisions impacting people.

    Advice to Management

    Staff for normal work loads, continue recognition programs from co-workers and management, find and train the unsupportive supervisors, and expect great work with hard decisions to be completed within 8 hour day.
