What is it like working as a Web Services Director?
Web Services Director in Seattle:
"Internal Web Services Department."
Pros: We have a casual work environment, a great team, the ability to influence the "clients" we work with. Option to work from home/telecommute and have flex work hours is a major factor in why I enjoy my job.
Cons: Difficulty in re-hiring personnel after they leave; general compensation across company is low and thus causes feelings of employees "not being appreciated" which results in underlying tones of low morale. We are a manufacturer with globally-recognized winter sports products, and my role is in web department; constantly we run up against scenarios where we suggest opportunities or ways we can drive online sales and the CEO is not digitally-centric so we are constantly told "no".
