MIssed opportunities abound; Management is poor; No career pathMay 12, 2016 - in Portland, ORRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Excellent PTO, free parking, good work/life balance (depends on manager), autonomous working environment, good energy amongst staff, decent pay if you are a new hire; work from home or remote is available depending on job description; good environmental programs
Insurance package and pay has gone downhill; lack of productivity across the business due slackers, constant changes and poor financial decisions; bad upper management structure and blatant favoritism; HR needs to be leveled and re-hired with qualified staff; no career development or growth pathing; org does not exhibit their own values; zero integrity; CEO is an old dog who needs to retire; job titles are given out like candy and not earned;Continue reading

Organization & Leadership?Jul 19, 2016 - Software QA Engineer in Portland, ORRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The QA team with which I worked consisted of extremely helpful and affable people. I really enjoyed working with all of them. The team lead is a dynamic, knowledgeable, and very helpful person. I liked her a great deal. The Senior developer is a wonderful person. Free instant oatmeal and really great hot chocolate. I would really like to have been an FTE employee.
Constant restructuring resulted in my contract being cut short; two-and-a-half months of a six month contract. At least I got a weeks notice. Management is so disorganized as to be non-existent. The manager I reported to spoke with me twice: my second day where she told me that I could not work from home and sometime during my last week with a 'thanks for your work' flavor. Parking in the building's garage is restricted to 'real' employees only. As is often the plight of the person doing on-site work the feeling of exclusion was quite obvious and uncomfortable. I would not work there as a contractor again.Continue reading

Great Company Until BuyoutApr 24, 2023 - Technical SupportRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good people, good wage and benefits - until they were sold. Still work from home though.
Everything at this point - would not recommend, bad benefits and paid very little with seemingly no opportunity to grow anymore.

Good people for a good causeAug 2, 2021 - Product OwnerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great people. Great work. This is a company where people do care about the mission, but in a grounded way, rather than being over top with slogans or trite gestures. The benefits for FTEs also look great.
This is an older company with a more traditional mindset. If you want to drain the barrel of kombucha and ride around the office on a skateboard, this is probably not the place for you, but with work from home, that doesn't matter much.

Good for the most part.Jan 15, 2018 - Content Specialist in Portland, ORRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great time off and work balance. Work from home two days a week. The office is nice, too.
Managers are inconsistent in giving promotions. Expectations for growth are not clear. Few employees of color.

Content SpecialistMar 25, 2018 - Content Specialist in Portland, ORRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Work that I am passionate about. Good benefits. Allowed to work from home two days a week.
Path for growth not clearly articulated. Salary compression within the Content Specialist jobs and inequitable pay. Many colleagues lack assessment experience outside of NWEA.Continue reading
