      Terrible leadership, toxic work culture

      Pros

      wide range of work, great individual contributors

      Cons

      Leadership allows the client to run all over their teams. They provide no training, no career progression, no empathy. Layoffs twice a year, EVERY year. They continue to remove resources & reduce headcount while keeping unrealistic expectations of their teams.

      It's a J-O-B

      Pros

      The work is easy and the managers are extremely laid back. Zero pressure and zero stress, which is actually a very nice thing. If you can't work, need to leave, need to do anything, you're free to go. They seem very accomodating & flexible in the Redmond business unit. Co-workers are cool. Office enviroment is laid super chill.

      Cons

      You can tell they are being pressured by corporate to cut costs. It shows around the office. We're using dated equipment, 90% of the computers here are old and slow. Not sure if janitors are coming by the facility anymore because things seem like they could be cleaned up a bit. No raises. Seems sort of like a sweatshop for print files - try to pump out as much volume as possible. Workers slowly begin to get spread thin - they want everyone to be able to perform as many duties as possible in other areas and for other clients. No perks really except free coffee, wooohoo! It's a job but I don't see how it's possible to move up within the company, at least at this location. From my talks with other coworkers it seems as though all hourly employees get paid the same, regardless if they have been there 1 year or 20 years, which I honestly find very hard to believe but sounds sad if true.

      Pros

      Lots to do and never a dull moment.

      Cons

      Internal company teams were more difficult to work with than with client and supplier and printers. Very disappointing and unncessary.

      Unethical Behavior

      Pros

      Great people at many locations. Very talented professionals.

      Cons

      Unethical business practices by Senior HR personnel and Top Management. Disciplinary policies and procedures not followed. Employment contract terms arbitrarily changed to save money. Unable to perform for the stockholders. Overstated sales forecasts that cannot be hit resulting in missing the plan year over year. Loyal employees jobs are being let go continuously. No job security at any level. A sinking ship that cannot be saved.
