Once great, but losing sight of its core identity
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 25, 2013
Since being acquired by a Swedish company, staffing levels have been cut, drastically in many departments. This has caused a corresponding increase in work loads but has not triggered any increases in compensation. The reverse is actually true -- benefits (401k matching, tuition assistance, incentive programs) were cut early on after the acquisition and wages for hourly employees were frozen for four consecutive years. Merit increases returned in 2012, but the additional benefits are gone forever.
