    Pros

    Cool creative atmosphere at home office, skate area outside, great product discounts, interesting co-workers. In-house deli food was awesome!

    Cons

    My department was "encouraged" to work through lunch often and we were told to put a lunch period on our time sheet, even when we didn't take a lunch. While I have no problem working over-time to push through a deadline, we were made to feel like every day was a deadline. People were always leaving my department, by being fired or quitting for another position. There was no real work-life balance. If you were sick and had accrued time off, you were told that you should make up the hours you lost when you went to the doctor, instead of using your sick days/vacation time. This seemed very unreasonable and inflexible,The overall attitude in my department was really negative. The department manager was unfriendly and out of touch with the team. And last but not least, the pay was low compared to other similar corporate jobs. There were no paid holidays unless you were a salaried manager..

    Awesome environment, friendly people, below average benefits

    Pros

    Nice office space, people bring their dogs and are chill and super friendly. Casual communication style and casual dress (shorts + flip flops are common) from people at all levels. People work very reasonable hours. This is not your standard corporate office in seattle. As far as the work itself, that will depend what team you are on and what your role entails which varies a lot. for me, I've been very happy with the role, people and environment.

    Cons

    Compensation is below market and many of their benefits have long waiting times (e.g. 90 day wait until health insurance and dental kick in, 90 day wait time until you start accruing vacation time). Very below market for salaried corporate employees and not competitive with the seattle market. Be aware and be sure you ask questions relating to this during your interview process, may give you leverage to negotiate. Their office chairs are also quite uncomfortable. Can I just bring my own from home?
