    Quality of worklife question

    Does anyone on this board actually work for the company? I'm interested in their philosophical and ethical approach toward their employees. What kind of an organization is it to work for?

    • I used to work there when I lived in the PDX OR area. I LOVED it. They have some excellent programs in place for the employees but they don't roll over for them either. CS got tired of supplying everyone at home with pens and pencils and finally told the employees, "bring your own". It was just out of hand. That's one reason I bought the stock. They have genuine concern for the people who work for them, they are treated with respect, BUT they also keep a check on the bottom line. If I moved back to that area and needed a job I would not hesitate to send them my resume.
