Great Salary, Terrible Environment (Seattle Office)
Ad Operations (Former Employee), SeattleOctober 7, 2013
Pros: free beverages, paid parking/bus pass, healthy work/life balance
Cons: poor work environment, very uptight corporate culture, lack of creativity
The company offers extremely strong salaries which is great, but it does come at a cost. The office is the stereotypical "corporate" environment. With gray cubicles and the type of silence you could hear – more... a pin drop, the majority of people come here, keep their heads down and collect a check. The corporate culture will rob you of every ounce of personality, zest, or happiness. This is just not the place for creative, vibrant, passionate people to work.

There is little room for growth as most people receive title changes and menial raises to compensate for the fact that there is no real upward mobility. More than that, the majority of the team are not passionate about what they're doing and instead gravitate towards this company to 1) Have a healthy work/life balance and 2) Get a nice, steady paycheck. Also, as a result of title changes, I found the managerial team to be extremely lacking and not having real management skills. There was also no real process/procedure in place which created a very unorganized environment.

If you are looking for a company that offers a great work/life balance and good money, in exchange for a culture eerily similar to the movie "office space" and employees that lack passion this is the place for you. No judgment because everyone looks for different things in a company, but I would tell anyone creative, passionate, or looking for a company that is investing in their products and sites to run the other direction. – less

Most bosses were good to great, benefits we're very good, often got day before a holiday off as well, reasonable about task load, would still love to work there, would recommend anyone to try and work for them

I had a wonderful experience at United Online. As the ISP side of the business has matured, I'm looking for a new challenge.
