CFE (Former Employee), SF bay area – April 28, 2013
Pros: decent benefits, fairly responsive to employee concerns.
Cons: lack of adequate management, salary a bit below industry standard in bay area.
Not sure about Seattle but here in the SF bay area McKinstry is little known. They are a decent company but have very little presence here in SF bay area. From my two years with them, regardless of their spin/pitch on themselves, are just a typical run of the mill outsource contractor. Ive worked in facilities with multiple facility outsource companies – more... such as McKinstry, not much difference between them. Personally, once the outsourcing trend took hold, things went downhill in a hurry. I say try to find an in house position if at all possible, you will be better off! – less
Human Resources (Current Employee), Seattle, WA – September 28, 2012
Pros: gym, trainer, basketball court, driving range, cafe, wellness program
McKinstry has provided an excellent environment for me and has fostered my development while working with me to create a workable balance between my career and my family. They hired me 2 months pregnant, and then supported me 100% through 12 weeks of maternity leave. They now let me work one day from home so I can have a break from my commute. The work – more... environment is fun and dynamic! I can't recommend this company enough! – less
