    I have been working at The Standard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company has pretty good benefits

    Cons

    Certain people are not honest about your opportunities regarding your career at this company. Many people advance within the company if they become close to their supervisor or manager. The policy of informing your current boss any plans to apply for another job within the company gives certain bosses the opportunity to block your chances to advance. Dishonest practices are being used to keep deserving employees the opportunity to reach their highest potential to grow professionally. Also, the grade level system needs to be restructured so managers will not consider employees for higher level position if they qualify for the job. Work distribution is not divided appropriately. Some people have been there too long with closed mentality. The opinions and suggestions of the employees with seniority is valued.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at the practices of supervisors and managers. Some employees are getting special treatment which makes for a toxic environment.

    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.
