High performing organization.
Sr. Manager Service Agreements (Current Employee), Seattle, WAAugust 25, 2014
Pros: good place to work, great atmosphere and working conditions
The Port of Seattle is a high performing organization with high expectations for its leadership. I have nothing but good things to say about the Port. The Port is going through a period of change; they are really focusing on the effectiveness and efficiency of internal processes. The Port has embraced a LEAN culture, constantly on the lookout for process – more... improvement. I have learned a great deal here, especially about the importance of leadership, and what a good leader is/does in a high performing organization. – less

A typical day at work with the Port of Seattle was exciting and new everyday. I learned how to use to radio with all it's codes to assist with all request of and duties using this system. I also learned the functions of all trades used to maintain the Port and Pier (Properties they maintenance). The management here were the most caring and helpful I've – more... come across. It's really a team while working with this company. The co-workers have a serious job to perform and do this while maintaining a smile on their faces. Very polite and a joy to be around. The hardest part of this job was fighting traffic to get there. I absolutely loved working here and giving my helping hand to assist with the process of Marine Maintenance! – less

A great place to work.
Work Planner/ Coordinator (Former Employee), Seattle, WAApril 17, 2013
Pros: onsite gym, education benefits, professional development opportunities
Cons: airport security
As one of the nation's largest international airports things never got boring. There was always so much going on and so many people coming in and out. Management was approachable and really willing to listen. Co-workers were great and made me feel like a member of the team right from the get go. Hardest part of the job was that it's a fairly large bureaucracy, – more... and sometimes things progressed slowly as they moved through the various levels of the organization. Most enjoyable part of the job was watching the planes come and go and knowing that I helped accomplish that for the customer in my small way. – less
