    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Unionized, defined pay increases, work from home, great department leadership

    Cons

    Random drug testing sites aren't always open so you end up driving/ridesharing to one 30+ minutes away at times. Any travel reimbursement is based off the Bothell office, so if you live south of there and have to go further south you don't get money back, or if you live south of Bothell and have to head past it, the reimbursement only starts at the Bothell office, not before

    It depends on the department...

    Pros

    Its a good company with very good benefits. Depending on the department you work for it can be a good experience or poor experience. They support you continuing education and keeping pace with the technology and corporate trends. My current team is patient and supportive.

    Cons

    I worked in procurement for a number of years and it was political, stressful, and lacked growth opportunities. I even experienced aggressive pressure from leadership who were under stress from poor decisions that had been made. I even experienced bullying from leadership who believed it was ok to do given their position, which I'm surprised was allowed at the company. I've since moved to another department and now my perspective has changed as they are completely different, supportive, patient, and knowledgeable.

    Performance is not handled correctly

    Apr 14, 2022 - Electrical Engineer in Bellevue, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -There are some extremely talented people at PSE that can help you develop your career (this is more-so outside your job description though). -In my particular group, I found that my work/impact is more effective because there is less layers of middle management. -I'd say the company is being forced to change (based on society) which is a good thing.

    Cons

    -Even if salary was more competitive, simply put, people who don't perform well are not disciplined by leadership which in turn creates this toxic environment where the bar is disappointingly low. -Raises/promotions are basically tribunals amongst engineering managers where they have a spreadsheet of all the employees and where they are at in their salaries. Long story short, there is no effective use of the pay-band in every title. You will hit a ceiling because someone else with more years of experience or a higher title is being underpaid. -Most of the leaders at PSE don't know the difference when they are getting too involved versus not being involved at all. Ultimately the outcome of this means that their employees aren't well equipped with resources or given the confidence that their leadership has the ability to hold others accountable.
