      Supportive company

      Apr 18, 2021 - Account Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      good benefits career support with the right leaders

      Cons

      challenging upward mobility based on where you're located. Being a Global company, having more remote roles would be ideal in a post COVID world.

      Good intentions, poor execution

      May 6, 2021 - Software Engineer II in Seattle, WA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They do treat their employees very well. Time off is very flexible and the overall culture is pretty chill. The campus is beautiful (if we ever get to go back #COVID). They genuinely care about doing the right thing, treating their community and customers with care and respect.

      Cons

      Project management/leadership is pretty severely lacking. Often you will get no requirements and then be asked for a date. Then when you push back they'll throw everything but the kitchen sink at you in terms of requirements. It's nearly impossible to get anything done. My project is dealing with some older tech, not a lot of innovation going on (a result of business not being flexible or open to tech solutions).

      Top heavy

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      ~ Rotation Program for an employee to have a chance to switch career ~ Benefits are industry standard. but on the medium tier.

      Cons

      ~ Education reimbursement is boss-approval basis. If your boss does not support it, you pay for your education out of pocket, even it is work-related. ~ Your promotion is 90% or more based on your boss's decision. 10% or less on the feedback that you got from people you have worked with and colleagues. even if you think you have contributed a lot, and your boss does not appreciate it. You are not getting a promotion.

      Great benefits and culture, very disorganized

      Apr 1, 2021 - Senior User Experience Designer in Seattle, WA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The design team has a wonderful culture. Supportive, down-to-earth, user-focused and grounded in research. The company as a whole is very inclusive and encouraging of I&D work (everyone is required to have an I&D related goal) CEO is a fantastic human being with a good heart and great business sense Healthcare is awesome, and attitude towards vacation are healthy. Cool perks like discounted hotels, airfare, and $1250 stipend toward whatever you need for "wellness" (ex: a bike) Seattle campus is very nice. Free snacks!

      Cons

      There is a lot of whiplash from ~5 reorgs in the past year. The Product team's priorities are always shifting and they have no continuity or direction. If you're very type A and into deadlines and clear next steps, you will end up frustrated. Timelines are always unclear. Launch dates and targets aren't planned - things go live when the project lead feels like it.

      Toxic Orgs

      Mar 8, 2021 - Director in Seattle, WA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It's a large organization, and I imagine some spots are better than others. And even through the pandemic it has managed to maintain its business foothold as #2 of online travel agent. Some managers try to do the right thing but it's not common.

      Cons

      The particular organization I was at has a toxic culture, probably because it's a cost center and an afterthought because most of the company is focusing on sales rather than post-sales. A certain Senior Director I reported to is the worst kind of leader: Will do anything to get his own promotion to VP due to his own insecurity that his peer have all risen and he has not. To gain executive visibility he'll make any promise that is asked of him and completely ignore the reality of his very stressed out organization. As a result the departure rate is super high, particularly the ones who are capable and can easily find jobs; but instead of focusing on recruiting to replenish, he has some high minded notion of what kind of person he wants on his team, and so hiring is severely lacking, which in turns drive more departure, and the organization falls further behind, which makes him less secure and more desperate, which means the viscous cycle worsens.
