      Corporate building is a physical representation of what it is like working here

      May 8, 2021 - Senior Data Analyst in Bellevue, WA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Work life balance except for some isolated business units - Pension and 401k - Indoor gym in corporate building - Centrally located in Bellevue - Lots of opportunities to wear different hats and move to different groups - Slow environment - A pro if you value this. Since the business hasn't changed much the amount of work to keep it going is minimal - Free parking at Bellevue Square mall

      Cons

      If you've ever seen the corporate building it is a concrete structure that almost looks like juvenile hall. The work culture like the building is very rigid and conservative. The rigidity (concrete) results in a culture that does not want to evolve when it comes to the work environment. The conservatism (gray color of the building) promotes a work culture of conformity and bureaucracy. Workers here are not encouraged to experiment if it does not align with management views of the world. Individualism is discouraged which is why everyone in senior management are clones of each other. Several other cons are listed below: - Dress code suit and tie and clean shaven - Must pickup phone within 3 rings - Very quiet environment to the point you can hear everything

      Pros

      Freedom to build your own career if you understand the business needs and can align your value offering to these needs. Good benefits and work life balance. Kind and friendly colleagues. Support from management to pursue further education

      Cons

      Workplace politics affects morale and slows innovative work. Too many teams doing the same thing and not wanting to work together. Too many silos and limited collaboration. Limited opportunities to grow in technical track.
