Only consider if you are willing to wade through bureaucracy

The Best Bits

If you get a good review in your annual review it is likely that you will get some shares that you can sell at a later date. You do have to wait for these to vest. Due to the cutthroat nature of the business here you develop the ability to look out for yourself and promote yourself as much as possible.

Things to improve

There is a chronic lack of communication from the top down and poor understanding of the employment laws in the EU from senior leadership in Seattle. In terms of communication it is often delayed and contradicts a message that may have been given a week previously to staff. This creates an environment of distrust with the front line staff that are working there. Improving this and giving communication that is honest and does not back track or conflict would have the buy in and earn the trust of the employees. In regards to the the understanding of employment law in the EU, Seattle management seem to be under the impression that you can release under-performing staff members at the drop of a hat without any notice. They do not seem to be aware that the employees have significant amount of rights in the EU. This somewhat contradicts their draconian "stack rank" which is performed each year. Regardless of how much you exceed targets by if you are at the bottom you will still be deemed the least effective team member and told this. An introduction of clear goals for Team Managers is essential and has been lacking for the past 3 years.
