911 Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAJuly 23, 2017
This job is the hardest I have done but the most rewarding. What you learn as a 911 dispatcher you will keep with you even if you don't pass the training. The experiences are life changing.

OK place to work
Tax Division Manager (Current Employee) –  Bellevue, WAMay 11, 2017
Great work life balance. Management is friendly. Some employees behave like spoiled children - lazy, incompetent, poor attitude. Some employees do work hard. Culture was very coddling. They would rather you feel good about working there over productivity.

If you enjoy being alone staring at a computer for 8 hours without help this is the place for you
Geospatial Technology Services (GTS) Intern (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAApril 5, 2017
There is so much "common knowledge" that they expect you to know-I am not sure how since you just started, but hay figure it out. There is a database with "how too" that are outdated when you follow one of those and it's wrong they expect you to know that.
I was miserable-no training, no one to go to for help. You are in a cubical so even if anyone was around you wouldn't know who was in your department.
Pros
I only had to do this for 1 quarter
Cons
If you know it all then you might be happy here

Fellow employees are dedicated and hard workers
Telemetry and Security Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAMarch 5, 2017
Fellow employees are dedicated and know how to do thier jobs well.
Senior management feels the need to be constantly re-inventing how things are done or to addopt the lates trends. Little thought is given to the years of staff knowledge and history that is lost when employees leave because of the next great experament.....
Pros
Staff knowledge is high
Cons
upper managament feels the need to constantly re-invent, which causes senior staff to leave.

Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAApril 30, 2012
I enjoyed my experience immensely. People were open & shared ideas for what was best for all. Rewarded for a job well done. Spent more time analyzing & designing than coding which is precisely what an analyst should do. Great co-workers and management. Too bad most corporations don't follow the same methodology.
Pros
management, training, co-workers.
Cons
outsourced itdepartment by non-it city managers
