Current Employee - Marketing Manager  in  Seattle, WA (US)
Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Seattle, WA (US)

Pros

Cool people in product and technology teams, many good ideas; not always enough focus to get key things done. Leadership has waxed and waned - seems to be improving; company has made some smart moves that can indicate staying power

Cons

Worst Marketing on the planet. Hands down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really evaulate not only what people are telling you, but who is telling you what. Focus on doing a few things well.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)

    Pros

    Cool people, some cool projects, easy commute if you live north/south of Seattle

    Cons

    Horrible productivity tools, everything done "on the cheap", unwillingness by senior mgmt to be open in communication with employees, compensation below other local employers, stock price has been in the toilet for years with no sign of improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees as you would like to be treated, communicate more openly, stop being "penny wise and pound foolish" with compensation decisions, improve tools so that employees can be more productive, don't be afraid to try new things and make mistakes

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA (US)

    Pros

    The people here are really nice and the job is pretty challenging. The cafeteria is pretty hit and miss with really spicy food everyday but the soup is usually pretty good. Working on different projects is fun and the location in Belltown is pretty good too. The bowling alley downstairs is fun but I forget it's there half the time. My manager is pretty cool about scheduling meetings and understands when other things come up and we need to reschedule. Halloween around here is the best part and they really go all out with costumes, prizes, decorations all the works.

    Cons

    Management doesn't always tell you what is going on so you have to figure it out through other means. Deadlines are pretty tough and missing them is not an option. My manager is pretty good about balancing my schedule and doesn't have me punch the clock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't think of much to tell them at this point.
